It could well be less than six degrees of separation between Imran Khan and Neil Nitin Mukesh. Both actors are all set to lock horns at the box office on January 11 with their respective new films. However, the similarity between the two does not end there.
Neil features in Bejoy Nambiar’s next while Vishal Bhardwaj is directing Imran. A source informs, “Both Neil and Imran made their Bollywood debuts in 2007 and were considered promising names right from the minute go. Their upcoming projects are defining films for both of them as both the filmmakers are established names to reckon with and have carved their own niche.”
Our source adds that while both the actors have a bearded look in their films, the only difference is that Imran’s look is more rustic and brash while Neil’s look is more edgy and slick. “Both the actors will be seen sporting strong stubbles and aviator glasses that contribute to their strong on-screen personas,” adds the source.
