Neil marries Priyanka!
Not in real but in reel, Neil Nitin Mukesh is the youngest guy to marry Priyanka Chopra among the six others. The oldest husband of Priyanka Chopra in ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’ will be Naseeruddin Shah and the youngest husband will be Neil Nitin Mukesh. In the film, Priyanka will play wife to seven husbands.
Says a source, "Neil didn't want another situation like Aa Dekhen Zara where everyone commented on how incompatible Bipasha and he looked. At the same time, he's a big fan of Priyanka's work. So when he heard that his colleague Ranbir Kapoor was working with Priyanka and prepared himself to match Priyanka's maturity level (Ranbir has stubbled, lean red-eyed look in Anjaana Anjaani), Neil was game for it."
Neil will be unrecognizable in the film. Says Neil from the location for Yashraj Films' Lafange Parinday, "When I heard the script, I was zapped. This was something I had to do. I play one of Priyanka's husbands, the youngest of the lot. The fact that I get to be in the same film as actors like Naseeruddin Shah and Mohanlalji was incentive enough. I read even Irrfan Khan is in the film." (However sources close to the project deny Irrfan's casting).
2010 is quite hectic for Neil as he has in his bag, Yash Raj Films’ ‘Lafange Parinday’, that he is currently working on Abbas-Mustan’s 'Italian Job'.
