Much before Neil Nitin Mukesh's Tollywood debut Saaho opposite Prabhas takes off, the Hollywood actor will be seen in a key role in NTR's upcoming film Jai Lava Kusa.
Although his role has been kept confidential, one assumes he would play a baddie. The film's director Bobby (KS. Ravindra) believed that Neil would be the right match to combat NTR in the action-drama.
Apparently, Neil loved his character sketch and agreed to come on board instantly. The actor is currently shooting for his part in Hyderabad.
A source from the unit reveals, "Neil's looks and his character were the clincher for him. He wanted to debut in a powerful role and found NTR's Jai Lava Kusa to be the perfect launch pad."
