Neil Nitin Mukesh impressed Vidhu Vinod Chopra in David

Neil Nitin Mukesh is having a good run playing bad! He was recently pitted against Salman Khan in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and last year demonstrated his villainous side in A.R. Murugadoss Tamil blockbuster, Kaththi, starring Vijay in the lead. But the role that impressed filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra was Neil’s work in David!

Vidhu Vinod Chopra was awed by the striking black and white portions in Bejoy Nambiar’s 2013 outing, David. Neil Nitin Mukesh’s version was shot in a sepia tone that conveyed the hippy pop culture of the 1970’s with élan. Impressed by Neil in those portions of the film, he was duly selected for Wazir. Vidhu Vinod Chopra says,

“I saw the black and white portions of David and found Neil perfect for the role of Wazir.”
