With actor Shahid Kapoor and wife Mira Rajput announcing the news of their second child, it is now the turn of actor Neil Nitin Mukesh to reveal that he and his wife, Rukmini Sahay are expecting their first child. The actor put out the news on Twitter and Instagram with the caption, “Now we will be THREE” and a photograph of a stork delivering a baby.
After a lean acting phase from 2014 to 2016, Neil was seen in two films in 2017, Indu Sarkar and Golmaal Again, which did well last year. This year, both films he has signed are under production, Firrkie with Jackie Shroff and Karan Singh Grover, and the trilingual Saaho starring superstar Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor.
The actor told Hindustan Times, “The arrival of our first born hasn’t seeped in yet but I’m definitely very excited for the next phase in my life. I am lucky to have great support system at home, who are constantly guiding Rukmini on the dos and don'ts. We are okay with a baby girl or a baby boy as long as the baby is healthy.”
Neil’s father, Nitin Mukesh, son of legendary singer Mukesh, is overjoyed by the news of a grandchild. He said to the newspaper, “This is the 4th generation of the Mukesh legacy. This means the world to us and we are very elated. The one thing Nishi and I were looking forward to after Neil got married was a grandchild. In fact, Nishi has started redesigning the family cot that has been passed on from generation to generation for the new arrival.”
