After many auditions and rejections that included actors like Vidyut Jamwal, film-maker Sooraj Barjatya has finally found an actor to play the role of Salman Khan’s younger brother in his upcoming film. It is none other than Neil Nitin Mukesh.
“The makers have had lengthy discussions with Neil, who has consented to Sooraj in principle. But, he is yet to sign on the dotted line. That should happen in the next few weeks as Neil is really kicked about the film. Bagging a Sooraj Barjatya film could revive his career which hasn’t been in great shape lately following a series of duds,” informed a source.
Added the source, “Neil is not the archetypal younger brother. His character is not negative but has shades of grey. That is the reason Vidyut turned down the offer.”
Tentatively titled Bade Bhaiyya, the film marks the reunion of Sooraj Barjatya and Salman Khan after a gap of 15 years.
