7 Khoon Maaf' is a Priyanka Chopra's film: Neil Nitin Mukesh: It’s rare to see a Bollywood movie where, despite the presence of seven male actors, it’s the female lead who hogs the limelight. Well, that’s the case with maverick director Vishal Bhardwaj’s upcoming film 7 Khoon Maaf.
Priyanka Chopra is getting all the attention for playing the hubby-slaying wife in the movie that also stars the likes of Neil Nitin Mukesh, John Abraham, Irrfan Khan, Naseeruddin Shah, Anu Kapoor and a Russian actor.
Neil, who plays an army Major Rodriques in the film, says the male actors are equally pivotal to the plot.
“So if the girl is important so are her seven husbands. The story would have been incomplete even without one of them. The movie has a great and huge cast,” said Neil.
However, even he couldn’t deny that the movie ultimately belongs to Priyanka.
“Of course it's her film. But we seven husbands are like her support systems. If not for us, whom would she kill!”
7 Khoon Maaf is slated to release on February 18.
