Speaking about his role in his maiden Tamil film directed by A.R.Murugadoss, Neil said it is not a typical villain role. It will be an extremely polished character of a North Indian who speaks Tamil well read and a foreign return. As the villain he does not fight with the hero with his brawn and uses his brains to wreck havoc to the hero.
Neil has also learned Tamil for the character he plays in the film and says it was an interesting experience to learn language.
Speaking about Vijay, Neil said, he could not believe that he is working with a superstar. Because Vijay is very humble, friendly, supportive and encouraging n the sets.
‘Kaththi’ is slated for a Deepavali release and it has Samantha as Vijay’s love interest.
