Riding high on the rave reviews he's been getting following his debut release, Johnny Gaddar, Neil Mukesh has turned extra cautious.
He reportedly nixed a Rajshri film recently claiming that there was no meat in the character he was offered.
Denying the news, Mukesh says, "Why would I refuse a big banner like Rajshri Films? I'm just a beginner. I would be foolish to refuse such a big production house."
Currently in Delhi for his father's concert, Mukesh accepts that there are two projects in the pipeline with Adlabs. He has a three-film deal with the corporate house.
However, he refutes rumours that he has signed six more films.
"I have no idea who's spreading such gossip about me taking up a project with Rohit Jugraj for Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision," he grouses.
Ask him about the Yash Raj offer that he's contemplating, and he retorts, "Even I'm surprised where this came from though I would want to meet Yashji and Aditya Chopra with a request that they take me on. I just haven't had the time."
The actor however admits that he has been meeting other filmmakers and in a week or two will should be able to come up with details about a couple of projects.
"Meanwhile, don't jump to conclusions. One has to take into account various aspects before giving the nod," he concludes.
