After working in a handful of films in Bollywood, Neil Nitin Mukesh is all set to wear the producer's hat. The film is a thriller drama which is a directorial debut of his younger brother Naman. Co produced by Madan Paliwal, the film will be extensively shot in India and is expected to go on floors in September.

Talking about the development, Neil revealed to a leading tabloid, "It's a coming-of-age story of a young boy who eventually learns that our perception doesn't always align with the reality. Since it's a thriller, I can't reveal more. I've written the script, have been working on it since the last two years. Naman collaborated with me on it as being a director it's important for him to be on the same page."

Neil Nitin Mukesh who is currently shooting for Prabhas starrer Saaho along with Shraddha Kapoor heaped praises over his younger brother Naman. Naman, who has ads and web content to his credit had also assisted Bijoy Nambiar and Abbas-Mastan before venturing into direction.

On being asked about whether Neil will star in his brother's directorial debut, Neil said, "I hope Naman approaches me. I've written the script with myself in mind, but Naman has the freedom to decide his cast. As an actor I'm pricey. It's an ensemble cast, so we have started approaching different actors. The technical crew is on board and recee is on. Music will also play an important part in this film."

About his father lending his voice for the songs in the thriller, Neil said, "Both Naman and I want that and are trying to convince him. Meanwhile, he is on board to sing the theme song to go with our company's logo which represents three generations - from my dadaji, singer Mukesh, to dad and now Naman and me."

Adding further, the actor-producer expressed his keenness towards filmmaking and mentioned that he has directed ads as well, but when quizzed about making a directorial debut himself, he said, "Right now, it's Naman's turn, but maybe in a year or two."
