Mumbai, July 21 -- Owing to work commitments, Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh has moved out of his south Mumbai home and shifted into a rented apartment in Andheri.
"This is the first time that I am staying away from my family. I am making sure that I take care of all the responsibilities like paying the electricity bills and other such duties," says Neil.
Ask him what his parents felt about his decision, and he says, "My mother is practical enough to understand that I have work commitments. It had become very difficult for me to travel three to four hours daily just for a meeting. In fact, she helped me in doing the interiors of my new house. But, yes, my father got a bit emotional as I have never stayed away from him. I will visit them over the weekends."
Neil has started shooting for his next with Sooraj Barjatya, which also stars Salman Khan. "I have shot for the first schedule and thoroughly enjoyed the process. The next schedule will begin soon," says Neil.
