(Calcutta Tube) Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh, who has done some daredevil stunts in his forthcoming film ‘Lafangey Parindey’, says he never speaks to his singer father Nitin Mukesh about these dangerous scenes.

‘I don’t tell my father what stunts I am doing. Instead of me, he will try and do them. He knows I am not going to tell him about what stunts I am doing. During ‘Aa Dekhen Zara’, I had jumped from nine-storied building. After jumping, I had called dad and said that I am all right,’ Neil told IANS in an interview.

Even when he did stunts in director Pradeep Sarkar’s ‘Lafangey Parindey’, Neil didn’t inform his dad.

‘This time when I finished my stunts, I called him and said all went well. It’s okay with him now. It’s a part of our life. We have to do these things,’ he said.

‘Must give a lot of credit to action director Shyam Kaushal. He had choreographed the stunts very well and trained me properly before the shoot,’ said Neil.

But Neil refuses to promote such stunts.

‘I won’t promote these stunts. I don’t want anyone to try them. We did it only and purely for entertainment. There were many people, enough security and roads were blocked before we performed the stunts. One should never try them,’ said Neil.

Set in the mean streets of Mumbai, ‘Lafangey Parindey’ is a love story where Neil plays Nandu, a boxer who pummels his opponents blindfolded. Deepika Padukone features as Pinky Palkar, an ambitious blind girl who dances with roller skates on her feet.

In the film, Neil teaches Deepika to see and she teaches him how to love.
