Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh will feature with Baahubali star Prabhas in his next film, a multilingual project.
Directed by Y Sujeeth Reddy, the film will reportedly be made on a high budget, and will witness Mukesh play the protagonist as well as the antagonist. “I took close to one year to finalise this project. What excites me about the film is the fact that the storyline is very complex, the role is challenging and I will once again get a chance to experiment. I’m excited to work alongside Prabhas and share screen space with him,” says Mukesh, who was in Bollywood film Wazir alongside actor Farhan Akhtar and Amitabh Bachchan.
Neil, who got engaged to Rukmini Sahay in October, has started preparing for his role and will shoot the film in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The film releases in the second half of 2017.
“I have started preparation for my role already. I have a special tutor and I reserve an hour everyday for my diction training and then two hours at the gym for my physical training. I will also sport a brand new avatar for this film,” says the actor, has been part of films such as Johnny Gaddar(2007), New York (2009), Jail (2009) and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015).
