Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh, who initially enjoyed shooting for the romantic thriller, Shortcut Romeo, in the jungles of Kenya, now says that shooting an action sequence there was a tough job.

The film is being shot in Masai Mara, a large game reserve in south-western Kenya. “Had an action sequence in the jungles! And we had to crawl! I had a hundred
thorns in my hand. Just wonder how the animals don’t get pricked (sic),” the 30-year-old posted on microblogging site Twitter.

NeilThe Susi Ganeshan film is a remake of his 2006 Tamil film Thiruttu Payale. In the film, Puja Gupta plays Neil’s love interest, while Ameesha Patel plays a negative role. "Ok so we had to scoot back into our safari vehicles because a group of 10 lionesses have gotten out to hunt antelopes. The pain of the thorn pricks just vanished seeing this," Neil further tweeted.

The actor is not only playing the lead role in the movie, but also giving voice to one of the songs.
