Neil Nitin Mukesh has shifted to a rented apartment in Andheri from his south Mumbai home. Even if Papa Nitin Mukesh (son of the legendary singer Mukesh) is not particularly happy about his son’s choice of living away from the family, Neil had to take that step. We hear Neil’s father get emotional as his beta has never stayed away from him. But such are the demands of Neil’s professional commitments that he has shifted to a rented apartment.

When asked what his parents felt about him moving out, he says, “My mother is practical enough to understand that I have work commitments. It had become very difficult for me to travel three to four hours daily just for a meeting. In fact, she helped me in doing the interiors of my new house. But, yes, my father got a bit emotional as I have never stayed away from him. I will visit them over the weekends.”

Neil who will be seen in Sooraj Barjatya next, which also stars Salman Khan says, “I have shot for the first schedule and thoroughly enjoyed the process. The next schedule will begin soon.”
