Neil Nitin Mukesh turns 41: I’ve always tried to push myself as an actor – Exclusive – Times of India

Neil Nitin Mukesh is a year older today. But he isn’t really letting himself go the way he would have liked to, after the Covid-constricted birthdays for the last two years.
Says Neil, “Birthdays hold a special place in everyone’s hearts, I am no different. Though I haven’t really celebrated it on the level I would want to, in the way of having a party and letting my hair down. It just doesn’t feel right to be whooping it up when there is so much suffering in the world.”

Neil is glad he has his family with him. “I pray to God and thank Him for the love and blessings he has showered upon me. I feel everyday spent with your loved ones is a celebration. I am blessed to have my parents, my brother sister, my darling wife and my most precious daughter Nuvi with me. They are my biggest gifts in life and I thank God for giving them to me.”
Looking back at his career Neil says, “I’m probably one of the few actors to have made a very unconventional debut in Johnny Gaddar, and that too by choice. I have always tried to push myself as an actor. I don’t want to be restricted by stereotypical expectations. I like being unpredictable. That is why I have done roles like Saat Khoon Maaf, David, Johnny Gaddar, Indu Sarkar, Wazir, Players to name a few. But at the same time I like to balance the commercial approach for popular cinema hence big-ticket films like New York, Prem Rattan Dhan Payo and Golmaal.”
