Neil Nitin Mukesh's retro look for Bejoy Nambiar's next film is inspired by Hollywood actor James Dean in 1955 Oscar-nominated film 'Rebel Without A Cause'

Neil Nitin Mukesh is currently shooting for Shaitan director Bejoy Nambiar’s next project in Ooty. The unit has been guarding the looks of the cast that includes South actor Vikram and Tabu as they want to keep it a secret. However, a source happened to catch a glimpse of Neil’s look in the film.

Says the informer, “Neil’s look seems to be inspired by Hollywood actor James Dean’s look from the 1955 Oscar-nominated film Rebel Without A Cause about a rebellious young man with a troubled past. It appears that Neil’s character seems like it has an edgy quality given the way he has been styled in the film.”

The informer adds, “They seem to have taken references from the late James Dean’s film. The look is classic with a very retro feel including old sweaters and leather jackets combined with modern elements like skinny ties and round neck t-shirts. The hair is short, gelled back unlike Neil’s long hair ruffled look.”

Looks like Nambiar’s gangster flick as all the characters in special looks with detailed styling no wonder the filmmaker does not want the look to be out.
