Johnny Gaddaar (2007)

Keeping fans glued with the intensity of his acting prowess, Neil made his Bollywood debut with Sriram Raghavan's thriller Johnny Gaddar. His act as a not so regular killer bashing up the goons was loved by audiences and critics alike. For this one, he earned himself a Filmfare Award for Best Debut Male nomination.

New York (2009)

The actor paved his way into the hearts of critics and audiences by flashing his acting as Omar in this one. He played the role of an Indian immigrant and his journey in the movie was worth a watch.

Lafangey Parindey (2010)

Trust us, even we were uncertain about Neil pulling off this role, but the man surprised us. With a very unique love story that of a blindfolded street fighter (Neil) and a blind dancer (Deepika Padukone), both the stars gave a kick-ass performance in this flick which needs everyone's attention and how.

David (2013)

This film saw the birthday boy at his finest, but sadly it got no attention amidst big releases. As a child with no parents (orphan), the actor delivered a stellar performance which had the right balance of chaos and style.

Saaho (2019)

Starring Prabhas as the male lead, the most anticipated film saw Neil as a baddie. A modern-day villain with the right attitude and killer prowess. Hands down, we can say that Neil portrays the role of a bad body on the silverscreen better than a hero.
