Neil Nitin Mukesh, who is the grandson of famed singer Mukesh, says that despite being from a film family, he had to "beg" for work in showbiz.
The actor was present at the launch of spot girl-turned-author Komal Mehta's book "Spot Girl" when he disclosed his share of hardships in the filmdom.
"When I came in the industry, I have been to every single door. I have been to every producer's door. I literally beggged them for work," the 32-year-old said here.
"Anyone I used to meet, used to say, 'Hi, hello' or 'Oh! You are Mukesh's grandson.' But nobody really gave me work. I was 22 years old at that time but I started struggling and finding work at the age 19," he added.
