Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh, known for his roles in hit films like “Johnny Gaddaar,” “New York,” and “Saaho,” recently celebrated his daughter Nurvi’s 5th birthday in a heartwarming manner. Neil, who made his debut in 2007 with the thriller “Johnny Gaddaar,” has come a long way in his career. However, it was his role as a doting father that took the spotlight on September 20 as he marked his daughter’s special day.
Taking to his social media profile to express his feelings, Neil Nitin Mukesh shared a heartwarming picture of himself, Rukmini, and little Nurvi. In the image, Nurvi is seen holding a cake shaped like Ganpati Bappa’s favorite sweet, modak, with a lit candle on it. Neil’s touching message to his daughter read, “My darling daughter Nurvi, God bless you with all the happiness forever and ever and ever. God must have thought that I did something right in my life that he blessed me with you as my daughter. You are my biggest happiness, my biggest strength but also my biggest weakness. I LOVE YOU THE MOST, my jaan. Happy 5th Birthday.”
Neil’s post also revealed Nurvi’s birthday wish for a modak birthday cake. Neil’s caption hinted at this, saying, “Ps: she wanted a Modak birthday cake to celebrate her birthday with our beloved Bappa.”
Neil and his wife Rukmini Sahay tied the knot in a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony in 2017, a decade after his debut in the film industry. The couple’s joy knew no bounds when they announced Rukmini’s pregnancy in April 2018, and their happiness was complete when they welcomed their daughter, whom they lovingly named Nurvi Neil Mukesh, on September 20 of the same year.
On the work front, Neil has had a diverse career, starting as a child actor and making a successful transition to adult roles. His debut film, “Johnny Gaddaar,” garnered critical acclaim, and he continued to shine in movies like “New York,” “Kaththi,” “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo,” “Wazir,” “Golmaal Again,” and “7 Khoon Maaf.” Neil also ventured into the South Indian film industry with notable films like “Kaththi” (his Tamil debut) and “Kavacham” (his Telugu debut).
