Entry in ‘The Family Man’

Challenges in Hindi
“I have no idea on Hindi. Frankly speaking, I never used Hindi language after 10th standard examinations. As live sound is recorded for the web series, I failed to prompt the dialogue. During the initial days, I used to write Hindi dialogue in Malayalam on a black board while acting. But when I noticed I was concentrating on the board, I decided to by heart the dialogues. After eight months of hard work, I completed the shooting," he said.
‘Gowthamante Radham’ and ‘Ka’ are the upcoming movies of Neeraj.
“In ‘Gowthamante Radham’, I am playing the role of a young man who is obsessed with cars. In the movie, I will be seen in three different get-ups. At the same time, ‘Ka’ is a romantic comedy. Both movies are on post-production stage,” said the actor.
Neeraj as a script writer
Neeraj has turned script writer for his upcoming movie ‘Ennile Villan’. His brother Navaneeth who is also an actor is making his directorial debut with this movie.
