Mumbai, May 8 (IANS) Neil Nitin, grandson of legendary singer Mukesh, is going places. After bagging a Yash Raj Films project, the actor has done his first ad and says he had his first brush with big stunts while shooting for the commercial. “It’s for a sports brand Sparks. And boy, did the sparks fly during the shoot! We shot almost non-stop for three days. At the end of it I was completely exhausted,” Neil, who bowed in Bollywood with critically-acclaimed “Johnny Gaddar”, told IANS.
“Since it was an ad for sports shoes, we wanted to make it as outdoor and sporty as possible. So it is shot with me doing the most serious hi-jinks possible. To be sure it was my first brush with big time stunts. And I enjoyed myself,” he added.
There was just one hitch.
“Those three days were really taxing on my energy. So at the end of each day the last thing I wanted to hear was my trainer telling me to do my cardio exercises.
“I begged and pleaded to be let off. But there was no respite. I think I must’ve lost quite a bit of weight during that ad.”
