New Delhi: Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh has completed nine years in B-Town and rejoices an ocean of fan following.
The charming and pleasant actor has potrayed varied roles on the silver screens and has been appreciated for many.
According to a report in IANS, Neil was quoted as saying, "I think there is flip to every person...There is always that alternate characteristic about a person that he is hiding within himself and what I am in person...I don't like portraying myself on screen because its the easiest thing to do...So, that challenges me as an actor."
"When I do that, I go through a lot of learning process," added Neil.
"I chose 'Johnny Gaddar' because first of all everyone doubted that I could be an actor. Every one thought that Mukesh's grandson, Nitin Mukesh's son should be a singer. So, just to prove them wrong because what I believed in, not just being rebellious, I wanted to prove them wrong," he said.
Last seen in 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo', Neil says that portraying negative roles "sharpens my axe slightly more".
"They are multi-layered, there are so many nuances, there are so many details into these characters that you get to study and understand. And every time you portray a gray shade or any character ...it's just another layer that comes up. So it's a learning process," added Neil.
