Neil Nitin Mukesh may have scored successes at the box office with some films or not quite covered the distance with a few others. However, not once have fingers been pointed at his intent to deliver, commitment or the performance in front of the camera. Walking a thin rope while being a hero, as well as villain, of the piece in Johnny Gaddaar (2007), Neil has been around for over a decade now and has comfortably placed himself well as a baddie.
