Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh says he wants to make films on the lines of Johnny Gaddaar, in which he made his acting debut.
Neil, who worked as an assistant director before making his acting debut, is all set for his home production Paidaar.
"Besides acting, I love to make films be it as a producer or director. Everyone has their own vision of making films. I am a dreamer. I want to make larger than life films, which are fictitious but are great entertainers," Neil told PTI in an interview here.
When asked if he has plans to make films like Dabangg, Rowdy Rathore or Singham, in which the heroes were portrayed larger-than-life, he answered in the negative.
"For everyone, the definition of larger than life is different. For me larger than life means films like Johnny Gaddaar," he said.
Johnny Gaddaar (2007) a thriller directed by Sriram Raghavan, had Neil alongside Dharmendra, Zakir Hussain, Rimi Sen, Vinay Pathak and Govind Namdeo.
The film received critical acclaim and went on to be a hit of the year. It was later remade in Telugu and Malayalam in 2012.
Neil says he wants to get behind the camera someday.
"I would definitely like to get into direction. It will certainly happen someday but it is a little premature to talk about it. I want to explore all the areas," Neil said. (More)
He was an assistant director for Yash Raj Films' Mujhse Dosti Karoge.
He is putting final touches to the script of Paidaar, which means eternal, which he has penned.
There was a buzz that Deepika Padukone would be the leading lady in the film. "We have not considered anyone till now as we are still working on the film. We will either go with a superstar actress or a newcomer," Neil said.
