Neil Nitin Mukesh is currently busy shooting for his upcoming movie ‘Bypass Road‘ . Earlier, as per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Neil has turned producer for his brother Naman’s ‘Bypass Road’. Neil has also written the script for the movie. Now, the publication has reported that Neil is playing a paraplegic (Paraplegic is a kind of paralysis that affects part of the torso, legs and pelvic organs) in the thriller.

Neil has confirmed this news to Mumbai Mirror saying that almost 95 percent of the film has been completed. He said, “I had to undergo a drastic physical transformation. I had got in great shape for ‘Saaho’ but for this role, I was required to gain weight. A wheelchair-bound man can’t have six-pack abs… we had to make it realistic. There was a lot of research that went into the equipment my character uses.”

There were 16-17-hour shifts while shooting the movie and it included Neil’s action sequences in the wheelchair. While talking about the experience of working with his brother Naman, Neil told Mirror, “Naman has done a fabulous job. I’m lucky to work with so many young directors. Both Naman and Sujit (‘Saaho’ director) are 26. Naman is my Baby brother and I’m protective of him. But on set, he’s a man with the controls.”

‘Bypass Road’ also stars Adah Sharma, Gul Panag and Rajit Kapur.
