Neil Nitin Mukesh is happy that he acts opposite Bipasha Basu in his upcoming film Aa Dekhen Zara. He's excited about the fact that he's just one film old while Bips has seven years of work experience in Bollywood. He admits that he admired her a lot.
Neil said, "Bipasha is a huge part of Aa Dekhen Zara. In fact, I can go on to state that she is 'the story' of the film. This character of Ray Acharya that I play in the film would not have decided to do anything in life if not for her. Since I can't reveal much about the film's plot, all I can say is that whatever steps he takes in his intriguing journey of life, he does it for her."
Bipasha plays a DJ in the Viki Rajani production set for March 27 release while Neil enacts the role of a struggling photographer. Bips had a good 2008 with successes like Race and Bachna Ae Haseeno, and according to Neil, she has not only been signed for the glam quotient.
He said, "That's definitely not the case. She is not just any other leading lady in a romantic thriller. She contributes immensely to the film's graph and is simply phenomenal in the role of Simi Chatterjee. She was mind blowing in Race. Actually, she was the best thing about Race. You could see that she was so pivotal to the film's narrative. Same is the case in Aa Dekhen Zara as well."
Much unlike his first heroine Rimmi Sen who had nothing much to do in spite of being important to the plot in Neil's debut Johnny Gaddar.
The movie also has Rahul Dev in an important role and has music by Pritam Chakraborty and Gourov Dasgupta.
