Neil Nitin Mukesh, who plays her first husband tweeted about his experience: 'My character in "saat khoon maaf" is that of Major Edwin Rodriguez. I play priyankas first husband ! Working with vishal bharadwaj was great. It definitely was a dream come true for me to get a chance to work with vishal sir ! He truly is a genius. This film has taught me a lot. I'm looking forward to its release. There were many aspects of the film that I can share with u. But will do that tomor ! '
Neil sports a moustache and will be seen in a narrow fedora and neat suits. He informed: 'The character I play is so different from what I am in real life.It took a lot of preparation work to understand and project it on screen. The look is very interesting. Its the first time I have sported a moustache. Inspired by my uncle (chacha) Mohnish Mukesh. One thing I miss alot about the shoot is the location of coorg. Really peaceful place. I was seriously at peace and good health there,' he added later.
