After Tabu, Neil Nitin Mukesh joins ‘Golmaal Again’ cast

After Parineeti Chopra and Tabu, Neil Nitin Mukesh has also joined the cast of ‘Golmaal Again’. The ‘Johnny Ghaddaar’ actor will begin shooting for the comedy after his wedding with Rukmini Sahay, which is scheduled to take place in Rajastahn’s Udaipur from February 7 to 9. Neil and Rukmini will also host a reception in Mumbai on February 17.

“I have been an ardent fan of Rohit’s depiction of comedy and this is a genre I was always keen to explore. ‘Golmaal Again’ will be my debut attempt at comedy meets intense as a genre which is extremely challenging to essay because you have to be comical and intense at the same time,” Neil said in a statement.

Revealing about his character in the film, he said, “It's an interesting character of a sophisticated corporate tycoon who arrives on the scene to take the story forward. The script is hilarious, I was in splits during the narration.”

Director Rohit Shetty has shot the other films of ‘Golmaal’ series in Goa, and Neil is hopeful that the fourth instalment of the hit franchise is also shot in the coastal state. “I complete 10 years in Bollywood this year and hope 'Golmaal Again' will take me back to the place where I shot my first film 'Johnny Gaddaar'. We'll also be shooting in Mumbai and Hyderabad," the 35-year-old actor said.

Starring Ajay Devgn, Tusshar Kapoor, Arshas Warsi, Shreyas Talpade and Kunal Khemu, ‘Golmaal Again’ makers are looking to release the film on the occasion of Diwali this year.

Meanwhile, Neil will also be seen in Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Indu Sarkar’, besides a multi-lingual film starring Telugu star Prabhas.
