I have always gone for character oriented roles: Neil

MUMBAI, Apr 28: After his last release ‘Players’ drew a blank at the box office, actor Neil Nitin Mukesh is now gearing up for Bejoy Nambiar’s “David” and a psychological thriller called “3G”, where his character has various layers.
“I am doing ‘David’ and preparations are on for it. But before that, I am doing a film with Sonal Chauhan, it is called ‘3G’. Its a horror film. It is on the lines of ‘What Lies Beneath’ and ‘Sixth Sense’. It is a psychological horror. I have always gone for character oriented roles,” he said.
“My character in ‘3G’ is completely layered. It is about a guy who gets possessed and like I said it is a psychological horror so to portray a character like that is rather difficult, it is not about one of those gory faces horror…It is a mind game. So anything with mind is interesting,” he added.
Neil, 30, feels our industry is way behind Hollywood and that there is a need for futuristic films to be made here as well.
“I want a special change in our industry and that is of futuristic cinema..I would like audience to accept futuristic films. We are 50-60 years behind Hollywood. There are lots of such films like ‘Jurassic Park’, ‘The Avengers’ that get released here and they do good business,” Neil told reporters here at an event, last evening.
“But when we make futuristic films here they do not do well. I feel cinema is fictitious and larger than life so should make these kind of films and hence I did ‘Aa Dekhen Zaara’ (a 2009 sci-fi romantic film),” he said. (PTI)
