Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh, who was last seen in the Rohit Shetty’s comic-caper Golmaal Again (2017), has ventured into film production with the forthcoming film, Bypass Road.
Apart from bankrolling the film under NNM Films, Neil will also write the script, along with playing the male lead in it. Adah Sharma has been roped in to play the female lead. The movie will be helmed by Neil’s brother, Naman Nitin Mukesh. It will be his first film as a director.
“Naman shows a keen interest in filmmaking. Both of singer Neil Nitin Mukesh’s sons Neil and Naman are part-time singers. But Neil was always more keen on acting while Naman is more interested in filmmaking. Indulgent father Nitin Mukesh has roped in a co-producer Madan Paliwal. Neil will be officially on board as the film’s producer and leading man,” a source revealed.
Talking about the film, Neil said, “Attempting to produce a thriller drama genre which is quite popular in Hollywood but hasn’t been really explored in India, has been quite a daunting task. Our entire casting is quite offbeat because we don’t want to embrace a tried and tested formula. There are so many stories to be told, so many new faces to be discovered and I’d like to use NNM Films as a platform to showcase raw talent.”
Bypass Road will be shot in Alibaug and Lonavala in a start-to-finish schedule of three months.’
