Nitin is injured from head to toe
Traumatic roles have become a part of Neil Nitin Mukesh's career. For his role in Lafange Parinde the actor is required to fight man to man with his adversaries, with the result he has bloody bruises and cuts all over his body from head to toe and it's not faked for the camera. "There's nothing fake about the fists of fury that fly in Pradeep Sarkar's film. It requires the rawest of physical violence and it can't be faked. So if you see me now I'm covered with welters, wounds and bruises, all gifted to me every day while shooting this, the most dangerous film of my career," Neil said.
"Otherwise if my mother saw what I look like, she would have freaked out. I'm getting physically hurt every day. I'm covered in bruises. Because I am light-skinned, the hurt marks show up bright red on me within seconds. I look alarming! Even to myself in the mirror," Neil added.
"I don't need Aseem bhai to paint on fake blood. My stunt director Shyam Kaushalji is doing a very good job of making my bruises and lacerations look real because they are real." said Neil temporarily packed off his makeup man.
Neil Nitin appreciated Shyam Kaushalji "Shyam Kaushalji is someone I really respect. I touch his feet every morning although he really puts me through the most dangerous situations. In 'New York', he made me run across a street with speeding cars. In Aa Dekhe Zaraa, he had thrown me off the 18th floor. But nothing had prepared me for what Shyamji has in store for me in Lafange Parinde."
Nitin is not ready to disclose the plot "Fortunately, I'm not a stranger to these kind of raw... combats. I may come across as soft spoken now. But I've gone through my share of campus fights during my college days. In fact, I've a fierce temper problem. So far I had kept it in check. But now in 'Lafange Parinde' I'm disturbed to see the violent ill-tempered side of me emerging effortlessly."
"What surprises me is the deep dark angry side to dada (director Pradeep Sarkar)'s personality. Who would have thought the man who made Parineeta and Laga Chunari Mein Daag had so much anger and violence in him?" Nitin concluded.
