Neil has great potential, says director Bejoy Nambiar
Filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar, who directed Shaitan (2011), is all excited about the the release of his second film David. “It is an edgy gangster-comedy film that tells the stories of 3 Davids (played by Neil Nitin Mukesh , Vinay Virmani and Vikram) in three different eras in different parts of the world,” shares Nambiar.
And Nambiar is all praise for Neil. “I’ve always liked Neil ever since I saw him in Johnny Gaddaar. I always felt that he has great potential. He is quite underrated as an actor. His image will change post the release of David as he has done excellent work in it,” says Nambiar.
The film will also see special appearances by actor Tabu and Sarika. “Sarika maam will seen in the new-age qawali Dama Dam Mast Kalandar. I had approached her earlier for a role but she had refused. I’m happy that she agreed to be part of my film. Tabu is a terrific actor and a delight to work with,” he says. Considering the trend sequels in Bollywood, does he plan a sequel for Shaitan? “No, I am not going to revisit Shaitan. In fact, I have many new stories that I want to tell people,” he says.
