'Shortcut..' one step ahead of 'Johnny Gaddaar': Neil
Mumbai: Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh says his forthcoming film 'Shortcut Romeo', in which he plays a negative character, is a chance for him to take the hatred and vengeance of his character in the 2007 film 'Johnny Gaddaar' one step ahead.
In 'Johnny Gaddaar', Neil played Vikram, a member of a gang which runs a gambling club and conducts other underhand deals. In the film, his character goes to any extent to make money. Neil's performance was appreciated.
"For the last few years, I was in search of such a script that could carry me one step ahead of 'Johhny Gaddaar'. Then I got a chance to meet Susi Ganeshan. He told me about this story ('Shortcut Romeo'). Then I felt that if I had to carry forward the character of 'Johnny Gaddar', 'Shortcut Romeo' is the film," Neil said here in an interview.
In 'Shortcut Romeo', the aim of Neil's character is to get rich anyhow.
"Through this film ('Shortcut Romeo'), I can carry forward the look and style (mannerisms and character) of 'Johnny Gaddaar'," added the 31-year-old.
'Shortcut Romeo' is the remake of Ganeshan's super hit Tamil film 'Thiruttu Payle' and also features Ameesha Patel and Puja Gupta. The film is releasing June 21.
