Neil Nitin Mukesh joins ‘Golmaal Again’ sets; gets musical welcome


Neil Nitin Mukesh, who got married to Rukmini Sahay in February, has joined the sets of ‘Golmaal Again’. The ‘Johnny Ghaddaar’ actor is a new addition to the fourth instalment of Rohit Shetty’s hit comedy franchise, along with Parineeti Chopra and Tabu.  

Parineeti welcomed Nitin on the sets by crooning the title track of ‘Golmaal’ and doing the hook step with the actor. Neil also clicked a selfie with the ‘Ishaqzaade’ actress and another one with director Rohit and shared them on Instagram. He praised Rohit and captioned the picture, “With the man himself @itsrohitshetty Genius to work with and such an honour being a part is of his creation. #golmaalagain.”

The movie will have Neil in the role of a sophisticated corporate tycoon who arrives on the scene to take the story forward. This is the first time that Neil would be seen in a comedy film. Speaking about it, the actor had earlier said in a statement, “I have been an ardent fan of Rohit’s depiction of comedy and this is a genre I was always keen to explore. ‘Golmaal Again’ will be my debut attempt at comedy meets intense as a genre which is extremely challenging to essay because you have to be comical and intense at the same time.”

Starring Ajay Devgn, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Kunal Kemmu and Johnny Lever among others, ‘Golmaal Again’ went on floors last month and the shooting is being held in Goa where the other films of the series were also shot. Neil has completed 10 years and Bollywood and 'Golmaal Again' brings him back to the location where he shot his debut film 'Johnny Gaddaar'. The team will also be shooting in Mumbai and Hyderabad.

‘Golmaal Again’ is scheduled to release on the occasion of Diwali this year.
