A couple of days ago, we had reported that popular actor Neil Nitin Mukesh is all set to add a new feather to his cap by turning producer for brother Naman Nitin Mukesh’s directorial debut. Now, the handsome star has officially announced the project along with sharing its title. The film has been titled Bypass Road. Apart from producing the movie under NNM Films, Neil will play the male lead as well. Adah Sharma, Gul Panag and Rajit Kapur also play significant roles in the picture.
To announce the project, Neil Nitin Mukesh took to his Twitter handle and wrote, “On the auspicious occasion of #GaneshChaturthi, we set you on a riveting journey ahead. Presenting @Mirajgroup Productions’ in association with @Nnmfilms. Starring @NeilNMukesh @adah_sharma @GulPanag #Rajitkapur. Directed by @NamanNMukesh #BypassRoad @BypassRoadMovie.”
Bypass Road will be a thriller. NNM Films and Madan Paliwal of MIRAJ have joined forces to jointly produce it. The makers have decided to take its mahurat shot at Mukesh’s 25th Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations, followed by a start-to-finish schedule of three months in Alibaug and Lonavala, Maharashtra.
Neil Nitin Mukesh made his acting debut with Sriram Raghavan’s 2007 neo-noir thriller film Johnny Gaddaar, which was one of the biggest hits of the year. However, despite starting off on a high note, his career did not reach the heights he would have probably thought. We hope he does wonder as a producer.
Meanwhile, last seen in Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again (2017), Neil has a number of exciting projects on his plate. Besides Bypass Road, he will also be seen in Sujeeth’s much-anticipatedSaaho, co-starring Baahubali (2015) star Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor. His other projects include Firrkie and Ikka.
