NEIL NITIN MUKESH
In SAHEB, BIWI AUR GANGSTER, Randeep Hooda had played a petty goon who entered Jimmy Sheirgill's princely state as a driver and dreamt of being a prince himself one day. In the love story that followed, Mahie Gill took advantage of Randeep and deceived Jimmy. Well, now that the film's sequel has been announced, there is an exclusive dope that we managed to lay our hands on.
According to out source, "The sequel begins with Jimmy playing a paralysed character with Mahie taking over his empire (or whatever is left of it), calling the shots and aiming at being a 'maharani' in this film which is set in today's times. Interestingly, the plot would be much thicker and meatier this time around. Neil Nitin Mukesh's entry into the picture would totally change the scenario for Sahib as well as Biwi." "He is definitely not playing a gangster like Randeep. He is in fact playing another prince with Rajputana blood running through his veins," the source added.

Of course the makers are tight lipped about Neil's exact characterisation in the film though it is expected to be grey as well, considering the fact he has received appreciation for such roles ever since he portrayed JOHNNY GADDAR. Also, apparently Tigmanshu was quite impressed with his 'princely looks' that were on display in one of his recent fashion shows. With Neil bringing on the vintage charm, it pretty much sealed the deal for him.
Though Neil didn't deny being approached for SAHIB BIWI AUR GANGSTER 2, he chose not to comment on his characterisation and look. He sent back a text stating, "It is too premature to talk about that."
