“‘Bypass Road’ released in 2019, but it released on an OTT platform on March 15 last year and on March 22 was when the lockdown started. And ever since then we’ve been really waiting to get back on a set. And I hope that that happens really soon, just taking a little precaution with we’ve been so patient for all this while waited so long the vaccines around the corner. So I just hope that once that’s done, maybe I’ll jump back on a set (sic),” Neil Nitin Mukesh told Bombay Times.
Although we have not been able to see him on big screen for a while now, Neil has been writing scripts. He says, “Meanwhile, I’ve been catching up on some really interesting content, I’ve been writing a lot, I’ve been reading a lot. And I’m very, very excited about how our audience has really latched on to some really great world cinema. So I’m hopeful about the kinds of genres that have opened up. And, you know, and the way our audience has now been educated. So it’s given us that opportunity of really exploring a lot more. And I personally have been writing a lot, I just finished writing a web series, which is a serial-killer based web series. It’s a thriller again and finished writing my next script for a feature film as well, which is again, a murder mystery. And so yeah, so I’ve been really enjoying the writing phase, I have always, you know, been very fascinated about telling stories, and I think that’s the most exciting part about films, you know, apart being an actor, which, of course, is priority number one. But I think the most amazing thing about cinema is that you can dream.
