Neil Nitin Mukesh is having a good run playing bad. He was recently pitted against Salman Khan in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and last year demonstrated his villainous side in A.R. Murugadoss Tamil blockbuster, Kaththi, starring Vijay in the lead.
Before Neil Nitin Mukesh’s more recent antagonist adventures, filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra was awed by the striking black and white portions in Bejoy Nambiar’s 2013 outing, David. Neil Nitin Mukesh’s version was shot in a sepia tone that conveyed the hippy pop culture of the 1970’s with élan.
Impressed by Neil in those portions of the film, he was duly selected for Wazir. Vidhu Vinod Chopra says, “I saw the black and white portions of ‘David’ and found Neil perfect for the role of Wazir.”
An action thriller starring Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar, Neil Nitin Mukesh, John Abraham and Aditi Rao Hydari, Wazir releases in cinemas worldwide on 8th January 2016, produced by Vinod Chopra Films and distributed by Reliance Entertainment.
