Neil Mukesh is rapidly acquiring the reputation of Mr Careful. After doing a completely wacky noire film Johnny Gaddaarhe's now headed to Sudhir Mishra"s art-house special Tera Kya Hoga Johnny.
It looks like Neil's third film would be an out-and-out commercial venture. Neil is getting ready for his first Big Bollywood flick, to be directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia and to be produced by Suniel Shetty's Popcorn Entertainment. Says the cautious climber, "Yes I'm considering this project. I"m reading the script. Let's see."
Says Suniel, "It's been a while since I did a full-on actioner. So much time has passed since my last stunt- special. People have forgotten that side of me. Though my next release Ashwin Dheer's 123 is again a comedy, let me assure you it's no ordinary comedy. The film with Tigmanshu is an action thriller with a touch of comedy."
Though nobody is giving away the plot, this Tigmanshu Dhulia thriller is supposedly based on the 2004 actioner Paparazzi directed by Paul Abascal featuring Cole Hauser as a film star on a revenge spree.
Coincidentally, Paparazzi too was produced by an actor Mel Gibson, Suniel Shetty is in august company.
