When Neil Nitin Mukesh ‘Begged’ for work
Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh comes from an influential Bollywood family. But Neil revealed that it was not easy for him as he had to beg for work in the film industry initially. The grandson of singer Mukesh, the man with a golden voice and son of Nitin Mukesh, faced a number of hardships even though he was hero material.
As per sources, Neil Nitin Mukesh said this at the launch of spot girl-turned-author Komal Mehta’s book ‘Spot Girl’, “When I came in the industry, I have been to every single door. I have been to every producer’s door. I literally begged them for work. Anyone I used to meet, used to say, ‘Hi, hello’ or ‘Oh! You are Mukesh’s grandson.’ But nobody really gave me work. I was 22 years old at that time but I started struggling and finding work at the age 19.”
