Neil Nitin Mukesh who recently announced his impending fatherhood is also taking a step forward in the entertainment business. He will be joining the bandwagon of actor-turned-producers with his maiden production company titled ‘NNM Films’. The outfit will specialise not only in film production but will also dabble in endorsements, events, advertisements, commercials and design.
Shedding light on the foray Neil Nitin Mukesh who apart from being an actor is also a singer says, “In the business of entertainment there are no creative boundaries. I have created an identity for myself as an actor but I’m also known as a musician, director and writer which are all aspects of the creative process and now with production it all comes to a full circle for me”
“Film-making entails multiple layers and facets which is very appealing to me since I’ve always believed in not being typecast. I feel there are so many brilliant stories to be brought to the big screens and it would be fair to give an equal opportunity to deserving talent through this venture. Our long-term vision is to cater to diversity through cutting-edge content”
Interestingly the untitled maiden project will also mark the debut of Neil’s younger brother, Naman Nitin Mukesh as a director. While Neil worked with Yash Raj Films as an assistant director prior to his foray in mainstream cinema, Naman has trained with Abbas Mastan, Bejoy Nambiar, Eros for over 6 years.
Adding on further Neil Nitin Mukesh states, “Naman and I have been working on the script of the maiden project
Since the past 2 years and the whole venture is as valued to him as it is to me. I couldn’t have asked for a better collaborator than my best friend and my brother. I have always wanted to launch my brother and I’m positive that he will do full justice to his calling.”
Elaborating further Neil who has been shooting uninterruptedly for Saaho, Firrkie and Sai Srinivas Bellamkonda’s untitled film over the past one-year states, “We have finalised the script of the maiden project that falls under the thriller-drama genre and have already signed on a few actors. Currently we are in the process of finding the right candidate to essay the leading lady. The technical team has started the ground work of venue recee and production and the film will most likely be shot in India.”
