Neil Nitin Mukesh talks about his role in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

After a promising start to his Bollywood career with the critically acclaimed performance in Johnny Gaddar, Neil Nitin Mukesh’s career didn’t really take off as expected. But now the actor is back and is excited about his new role. He will be playing Salman Khan’s step brother in the upcoming film, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

“It is a very complex character. It is nicely layered. I play Ajay Singh, Salman’s step brother in the film. He is a rebel with a cause. There are times when people are misunderstood and because of that they invite a lot of flak and negative attention. I play a character like that” he said.


Neil went on to talk about his experience of working with a superstar like Salman Khan, who has been in the industry for more than 25 years.

“He is concerned about everybody on the sets. It does not matter to him how big or a small a person is. That shows his stature. His presence is intimidating but when you know him he is like a baby. I am honoured to work with Salman Khan. He is one of the best human beings I have come across. It is so rare to find the combination of a mega superstar, who is so chilled out and relaxed and at the same time a people’s person.”

The director of the movie Sooraj Barjatya is known to give blockbusters with Salman Khan and Neil was all praise for him as well.

“This film is a big boost to my career. I couldn’t have asked for more. It is going to be one of the biggest films in India. When I read the script, I was pleasantly surprised because this is not a setting what people would expect from a Sooraj Barjatya film but at the same time he has maintained the essence of his movies so beautifully. I am undergoing physical training for an elaborate action sequence in the film. It is first of a kind for Sooraj Barjatya film and for me as well as I have not done such action before.”

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo releases in theatres on 11th November 2015.

    Gabbar Is Back
    Bajrangi Bhaijan
    Singh Is Bling
    Prem Ratan Dhan Payo
    Dil Waale

    And these are the movies, i will watch definitely in 2015

    Dil Dhadakne Do

    Hamari Adhuri Kahani
    Tanu Weds Manu Returns
    Jagga Jasoos
    Ghayal Once Again
    Bajirao Mastani

  • Salman can’t even think of reaching shahrukh’s popularity and fame.
    Prdp will disappoint many.

    Only waiting for fan,raees,dilwale.

  • The excitement keeps building up , when Neil says “It is going to
    be one of the biggest films in India” he means in terms of both the quality & quantity. Salman is one superstar who has fans from the age groups of 6 to 60 so PRDP should be good enough to all of them and if the movie really meets at least 80% of our expectations then crossing 300 crores wouldn’t be a problem , if all things go well then PRDP could draw a ‘line of eras’ like how HAHK did in bollywood’s history when it released more than 20 years ago , If PRDP can’t then bajrangi bhaijaan will take the top spot so salman is going to top this year with PRDP & BB

    The top 3 biggest grossers of 2015 most likely would be
    1. PRDP/BB
    3. dolwale .

  • Hopefully neils career will take a fly after this film.. unless the movie turns out to be a total disaster

  • the gap is not plus two movies in a year.
    bb and prdp will badly become disappointment u have my word.
    let’s wait for bb how will it perform!?

  • finally an article about this year’s biggest release’s main actor.
    hats off neil.i am sure now due to u , prdp will cross 100 cr in first weekend.

  • salman fans always say our bhai is bigger star than all. but it is aamir khan who gives all time blockbuster..
    dhoom 3 : 286 crore and 544 crore.
    i wonder which actor will break dhoom 3 and pk’s record.
    1st let sallu to breal ce 422 crore then talk about pk.??????
    i am 100% sure that dilwale will break dhoom 3’s record. about pk only time will tell.* bhai fans just wait time will be as a proof.

  • biggest hit of 2015 will be dilwale.
    biggest hit of 2016 will be raees or mohenjo daro.*
    no chance for bb and prdp to become highest grossing man!????

  • srk, amir, hritic all megastar gave all time highest grosser D2,OSO,GHAJNI,3I,CE,k3D3,PK but when salman gave all time highest grosser?? Opps hahk which was release in 1994 my birth year, too much fun

  • Even Neil himself thinks working with Salman will bring his career back on track after his disappointing outings in recent times but our kingtards think that Neil is bigger than Bhai…rip logic

  • @romance outdated, hahk record stood for 7years while our King’s crappy express record was blown away in 2 months by krrish 3.And even if you think k3 collection was manipulated, Dhoom 3 blew crappy express out of sight after just 4 with it.

  • Top5 Grosser of 2015
    1 Dilwale 275cr plus
    2 Bajrangi bhaijaan 205 to 215cr
    3 Brothers 180 to 200cr
    4 Fan 160 to 180cr
    5 Prdp 140 to 160cr

  • If youths are not interested in a Salman starrer which also has action, how are some people expecting them to be interested in Ghayal2 starring Sunny Deol who is not even a star now and Ghayal was released long time ago?So Ghayal2 won’t affect PRDP much. Ghayal was a good film but youths from this generation won’t be interested because it came long ago but Salman still has a huge following among the youths. #ATBB_ThisDiwali

  • Biggest flop of the decade prdp. Berangi bhaijaan and prdp will mark the return of glorious decade 2000-2009 for our bhai where even emraan hasmi movies were opening better than bhai’s movies. Lol .

  • Hope Neil Nitin Mukesh does not overshadow our bhai.Bhai is talentless actor so chances are high. History also shows that bhai is always overshadowed by his co-actors like madhuri in hahk, Sanju baba in saajan, Aamir in AAA, Akshay in MSK, Govinda in partner,SRK in karan Arjun .
