The who and who of Bollywood was present at the 55th Filmfare Awards held at the Yash Raj studios. The noisy auditorium turned silent after Neil Nitin Mukesh told his seniors Shahrukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan to 'shut up".
The delegates at the function feared for the worst, as the memories of director Ashutosh Gowariker bursting out at Farah Khan and Sajid Khan at a film award function, rushed back. Neil lost his cool at the recent Filmfare Award after co-host Shahrukh and Saif tested his patience.
Shahrukh pulled the final trigger by saying why he has three names and no surname. He went on to say that his surname is Khan and so too Saif"s but he has no last name. On being mentioned on his family, Neil got into a rage and told Shahrukh to restrain himself, as his father was in the audience. He didn"t stop there. He told Shahrukh to just 'shut up".
Silence followed after the unexpected outburst. After the show, Katrina Kaif went up to Neil and told him to apologise to SRK and Bipasha Basu told him that the act was scary. The actor himself is yet to come out of the incident. The very thought of telling Shahrukh to shut up still shakes him. He said that he even broke eggs on the heads of Shahrukh and Saif at the end of the show.
Hold on guys, it was part of the show. Neil revealed that Shahrukh told him what he should do on the stage. He added that he was even asked to throw eggs at his co-hosts but he begged to at least spare him on that. He instead chose to break eggs on the heads after the show.
Neil"s shocked father has not forgiven him for the act. He said that he is glad people has finally got a taste of his mischievous side but added that he would never repeat the act again…never again.
Well Neil, your recent act has proved that you have come a long way as far as acting is concerned.
