Neil Nitin Mukesh: Sooraj Barjatya, one of the finest directors
The actor, who was last seen in the 2013 release “Shortcut Romeo”, lauded Barjatya for bringing forth simple and emotional stories without going over the top.
“Working with him is a dream come true!!! One of the finest directors and more importantly finest human beings,” he tweeted.
The film, which is scheduled to release around Diwali this year, is special as it marks the reunion of Salman Khan and Barjatya as director after almost 15 years. Their last film together was “Hum Saath Saath Hain” (1999).
The film also features Bollywood’s fashionista Sonam Kapoor and actress Swara Bhaskar.
After failing to find a foothold in Bollywood, Neil went on to do Tamil actioner “Kaththi” last year.
