Nilesh is the son of small time yesteryear actress Zaheeda who is Sanjay Dutt’s cousin. We remember her as Dev Anand’s heroine in the song ‘Churi nahin hai mera dil hai’, in Gambler. She also starred in Dev Anand’s ‘Prem Pujari’.

Nilesh learnt acting from Kishore Namit, and underwent a theatre course from Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan. Nilesh considers Sanjay Dutt to be his greatest idol and his films are his favorites. The 23 year old enthusiastically claims: “My real school has been Sanju mama’s films, especially Rocky, Vaastav, Hathyar and the Munnabhai movies.”

In Ek Duje Ke Liye, he plays a romantic hero opposite Anishka Khosla who has earlier done plays. Anisha plays a London-returned girl who falls for the charms of the Dalhousie dude, Nilesh. The film’s music will be composed by Sajjad, grandson of renowned music director Ghulam Mohammed.

Deepak Shivdasani says. “Besides the young love story, this is also the story of a 60 year old man and woman. I am negotiating with Rekha and Vinod Khanna to play the older couple. Nilesh will play the younger Vinod Khanna.”
