Apart from the lead actress, director Sooraj Barjatya was also looking for a good-looking actor to play Salman Khan’s brother in his coming movie. Now, it’s heard that the director has finalized Neil Nitin Mukesh for the role.
After several rounds of auditions and brainstorming sessions, Sooraj Barjatya has got Salman’s younger brother for his movie, tentatively titled Bade Bhaiyya. Though Neil Nitin Mukesh is almost confirmed for the role, the actor has not yet signed on the dotted line.
“Sooraj has now pencilled in Neil for the project. The character has grey shades and since Neil is someone who loves to do dark roles, Barjatya thought that he was apt for the role,” a source is quoted as saying by a tabloid.
The makers reportedly had lengthy discussions with Neil, who has consented to the director in principle. Earlier, the ‘Commando’ actor Vidyut Jamwal was supposed to do the role, but it’s learnt that he turned down the offer because the character has shades of grey.
As Neil Nitin Mukesh has bagged the role, he is hoping to revive his sagging career with this project. The last few years haven’t been great for Neil as most of his films fell like ninepins at the box office. The actor is quite kicked about the project that will reunite Salman Khan and Sooraj Barjatya after 15 years.
Buzz is also strong that the film might have Sonam Kapoor as Salman Khan’s heroine. The official confirmation is yet to come.
