It has been close to a year and a half since his JOHNNY GADDAR released at theaters but Neil Nitin Mukesh claims that he was never insecure about AA DEKHEN ZARA arriving after such a huge gap.
''I can't do 3-4 films at a time and instead want to concentrate on only one film at a time. I want to work with all conviction and honesty'', says Neil who is paired opposite Bipasha Basu in the Jehangir Surti directed thriller that is centered on a camera which can tell the future. ''I am very new to the industry and don't understand box office. All I can think of is creativity and that for sure doesn't have any boundaries or time limit.''
But after the critical acclaim that JOHNNY GADDAR fetched, didn't he feel like coming back on the big screen sooner and make a point?
''Seriously, I don't want to prove a point'', says Neil in a matter of fact tone, ''There are a few films of mine that are about to be released now but during the entire duration when they were being made, I never felt insecure. In fact I look at the brighter side of the entire situation i.e. even though there has been such a long time since the release of JOHNNY GADDAAR, people haven't forgotten me. I am thankful to them for that.''
He must certainly be pinning big hopes on AA DEKHEN ZARA and the projects to follow?
''Of course yes'', says Neil, ''Let's hope that with these films, I continue to entertain the audience. I am praying and hoping that they will appreciate me in my coming movies as well.''
