Early life and background

Neil was born Neil Nitin Mukesh Chand Mathur on 15 January 1982 in Mumbai, Maharashtra. His father is Bollywood playback singer Nitin Mukesh, son of veteran singer Mukesh. His paternal grandmother was a Gujarati Shrimali Brahmin while his paternal grandfather was a Mathur Kayastha from Delhi.[3] He was named by Lata Mangeshkar after the American astronaut Neil Armstrong. As a child, he appeared in Vijay (1988) and Jaisi Karni Waisi Bharnii (1989) as the younger versions of Rishi Kapoor and Govinda.


Neil made his debut in Sriram Raghavan’s 2007 thriller Johnny Gaddaar. His portrayal of a crook received positive reviews from critics and earned him a Best Male Debut nomination at the 53rd Filmfare Awards. Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama described Neil as a “complete natural”: “The youngster carries off the part with dexterity. There’s just one word to describe his performance – superb!” However, despite critical acclaim, the film failed to do well at the box office.
