"Shortcut Romeo" is a romantic thriller directed and produced by Susi Ganeshan. It is the remake of the Ganeshan's 2006 Tamil film "Thiruttu Payale". The film also features Puja Gupta and Ameesha Patel. While Puja will be playing Neil's love interest, Ameesha would be seen in a negative role.
This is not the first time that Neil has turned a actor-singer. He has previously sung the title track of his film "Aa Dekhen Zara" and later gave his voice for another song in Madhur Bhandarkar's "Jail".
