Early life and background

Neil Nitin Chand Mathur was born in Bombay, Maharashtra, on January 15, 1982. Nitin Mukesh, the son of veteran singer Mukesh, is his father. Although his paternal grandfather was a Mathur Kayastha from Delhi, his paternal grandmother was a Gujarati Shrimali Brahmin. After the American astronaut Neil Armstrong, Lata Mangeshkar named him after the American astronaut Neil Armstrong. He appeared in Vijay (1988) and Jaisi Karni Waisi (1989) as the younger versions of Rishi Kapoor and Govinda respectively as a child.

Mukesh was educated at HR College in Mumbai, where he obtained a bachelor's degree in commerce at his father's insistence. Despite being born into a family of singers, he decided to pursue a career in acting. In a talk with The Times of India, the actor said, "singing is my passion, but acting is my passion." And my grand-dad shared a passion for which even my grand-dad was enthused. So, although my father survived his lineage and became a guitarist, I pursued his other passion. I am living his dream." Neil attended a four-month course at the Kishore Namit Kapoor Acting Institute and received Anupam Kher's training.

In Kevin Gaddaar's 2007 thriller Johnny Gaddaar, Mukesh made his debut. Critics applauded his performance of a crook, earning him a Best Male Debut nomination at the 53rd Filmfare Awards. Neil is described as a "complete natural" by Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama: "The youngster performs the role with dexterity." He's just one word to sum up his appearance – "amazing." Despite critical praise, the film did not do well at the box office, despite critical praise.

Aa Dekhen Zara's first film in 2009 was the science-fiction thriller. He co-starred with Bipasha Basu and inherited a camera (whose photographs forecast the future) from his scientist grandfather's widowhood. The film was both a critical and commercial failure. Critics often praised his appearance; although Nikhat Kazmi described him as charming and effortless, Raja Sen of said he "seems to have selected another character that doesn't impose him to do anything beyond the fish-out-of-water routine."

With John Abraham, Katrina Kaif, and Irrfan Khan, his next appearance was in Kabir Khan's action-drama New York. The film, which was a critical and commercial success, earned over 610 million (US$7.6 million) worldwide during the 9/11 aftermath. Critics lauded his performance, earning him the Best Supporting Actor award at the 55th Filmfare Awards. "Neil as the sophomore with stars and stripes in his eyes is highly convincing and supportive of the two central performances," Subhash K Jha wrote.

Madhur Bhandarkar's Jail, his year-end film, was a film about prisoners in Indian jails. The film's aesthetically shot nude scene (showcasing the torture suffered in prison) and a masturbation scene sparked controversy; as a result, the second scene was reduced. "My nude or masturbation scenes are not for titillation," Mukesh explained. In the script, it's a very practical need. My character has been in jail without sex for two years.

What does he do?

He naturally needs pleasure by himself." Critics praised the film and his performance for a commercial loss. "Not only does Neil Nitin Mukesh give his best show to date, but the execution will definitely rank among the finest this year," Taran Adarsh said. He reveals the pathos and helplessness with which this character is in need of such compassion. All praise is due to his extra-ordinary appearance."

Mukesh appeared in Pradeep Sarkar's romantic drama Lafangey Parindey with Deepika Padukone in 2010. Although the film received mixed reviews, critics lauded his portrayal of a fighter. Neil's "underplayed acting style complements the character's sketch perfectly," Sonia Chopra of Sify's Sonia Chopra. "He looks great in every picture and he maintains [the character's] rugged demeanour with panache," Blessy Chettiar of Daily News and Analysis said. Lafangey Parindey was a modest commercial success, with a worldwide sales of 310 million (US$3.9 million). In Sudhir Mishra's dramatic thriller Tera Kya Hoga Johnny, Neil then appeared.

In April 2010, he became a brand ambassador for one of the country's top clothing brands, Oxemberg.

Mukesh appeared in Vishal Bhardwaj's 7 Khoof, a black comedy based on Ruskin Bond's "Susanna's Seven Husbands") starring Priyanka Chopra as a woman who murders her seven husbands in a never-ending search for love. Major Edwin Rodriques, Chopra's first husband, was played as an arrogant, jealous, and possessive army officer who lost a leg in Punjab's Operation Blue Star in 1984. The film premiered at the 61st Berlin Film Festival; it was a commercial disappointment with mixed feedback from critics, but Mukesh's performance was lauded. Nikhat Kazmi wrote, "excelled as the brute."

Mukesh appeared in Abbas-Mustan's Players as part of an ensemble cast starring Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, and Bobby Deol in 2012. The film was a reimagining of the 2003 Hollywood heist thriller The Italian Job, but it was also a commercial disappointment, receiving mixed to critical feedback from critics, as did Mukesh's performance). "Brings a menacing tone to the narcotic," Subhash K Jha said. According to's Sukanya Verma, Mukesh "mistakes sinister for superficial, resulting in a truly phony appearance."

Mukesh appeared in three films in 2013, but they were unsuccessful commercially. In 1970's London, Bejoy Nambiar's action-drama David, in which he played a gangster whose boss controls the Asian community, was his first appearance. "Here was this hardcore, super violent gangster, and on the other hand, my producer wanted to expose the emotional and romantic aspects of him," the actor said. The film received mixed reviews, but Mukesh's presence was highly lauded. Madhureeta Mukherjee wrote for The Times of India, describing it as "restrained and strong" in CNN-IBN's Rajeev Masand, and that Mukesh is "nicely understated."

In Eros International's horror film 3G, he appeared opposite Sonal Chauhan for the next time. The film, shot in Fiji, told the tale of how the pair cope with supernatural situations when they buy a 3G-enabled phone. Critics generally did not like the film. "Mush is consistently over the top," Ankur Pathak said in a review, adding that his "body language is constantly traumatic." He appeared in Susi Ganeshan's crime drama Shortcut Romeo, alongside Ameesha Patel and Puja Gupta. When the picture was limited release by its designers and became a major commercial failure, it became problematic. Madhureeta Mukherjee of The Times of India said: "Neil does well as always, he looks good (he must tone down his physical appearance for such roles) and reveals that actors such as him need better scripts to convey their true potential."

Mukesh has completed two films – Prerna Wadhwan's romantic drama Ishqeria, which will see him star Richa Chadda, and Manish Vatsalya's Dussehra, where Mukesh will appear as an encounter specialist with Tena Desae – where he will appear opposite Richa Chadda. With the Kaththi of AR Murugados, he made his debut in Tamil cinema. He appeared in Sooraj R. Barjatya's 2015 family drama Prem Ratan Dhan Payo with Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor. In Wazir, he made a guest appearance.

He became a producer and started filming Bypass Road, a thriller-drama film directed by his brother Naman Mukesh and written by himself in November 2018. The film is set to be released on November 1, 2019.

He appeared in Saaho, a Sujeeth multilingual film directed by Sujeeth, as an antagonist Jai aka Ashok Chakravarty.
