Neil Nitin's too fair for K-Town
The actor reveals that his Susi Ganesh-directed flick will be dubbed into Tamil as well
for the climax scene for Susi Ganesh's Shortcut Romeo, the remake of
Thiruttu Payale, in the city, the Bollywood actor says he chose to do
this film because he gets to do something that he loves — portray shades
of grey. "I love to essay these characters layered with shades of grey,
because I'm not like that in real life. This is where the challenge as
an actor comes in. Doing complex characters pushes the envelope as an
actor," says Neil.
Neil, who is proud of his track record of
working with seven National Award-winning directors out of his nine
films, says Shortcut Romeo too is going to be an interesting film in his
repertoire. "We've shot in Goa, Mumbai and are the first Indian film to
shoot in Maasai Mara reserve in Kenya," says Neil.
The actor lets us in on one little secret. "We've tweaked the original script
in a major fashion. This is the reason why we are now planning to
release the dubbed version of this Tamil remake back in Tamil," says
Neil. Won't that be repetitive to the Tamil audience, we ask and he
promptly says, "I've seen the Tamil original, trust me when I say this
film will be completely different."
This won't be his only brush
with Kollywood right now, for he will next be sharing screen space with
Vikram in a film. "I'm also doing a Hindi film called David being
directed by Bejoy Nambiar, where I play the titular character," says
Quiz him if he would be game to doing a Tamil film, now
that he has so many connections, and he laughs, "I would want to do it.
I've practically worked with a team of technicians from the south for Shortcut Romeo. But, my director says I'm very fair."
