“I had to beg for work”, says Neil Nitin Mukesh

Neil Nitin Mukesh, the grandson of famed singer Mukesh, says that despite being from a film family, he had to “beg” for work in showbiz.


The actor, at the launch of spot girl-turned-author Komal Mehta’s book “Spot Girl”, disclosed his share of struggle in the industry.

“I had to beg for work”, says Neil Nitin Mukesh.

Neil added, “I have been to every single door. I have been to every producer’s house ever since I arrived in Bollywood. I literally begged them for work.”

“Anyone I used to meet, used to say, ‘Hi, hello’ or ‘Oh! You are Mukesh’s grandson.’ But nobody really gave me work. I was 22 years old at that time but I started struggling and finding work at the age 19,” added the blue-eyed actor.

Neil made an impressive debut with “Johnny Gaddar” and went on to be a part of many films, including “New York”, “Jail”, “Lafangey Parindey”, “7 Khoon Maaf”, “Players” and “Shortcut Romeo”.

Neil Nitin Mukesh was last seen in “Shortcut Romeo” opposite Ameesha Patel anf

He is currently busy with Sooraj Barjatya for his next “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” and A.R. Murugadoss’ Tamil film “Kaththi”.

“Prem ratan Dhan Payo” stars Salman Khan in the lead.
