Rahul Bose who has several accolades to his name will be seen playing the flamboyant character of Jimmy Mistry, showcasing a never seen before side of him.
Rahul Bose opened up about being a part of Neeyat and his character, “When I heard the story of Neeyat, I felt that it was a classic whodunnit. What was interesting was the cast with Amrita, Shahana, Ram, of course, Vidya and everyone else.” He also went on to add, “The thing that I found interesting and just something to get my teeth into was the character, very very very far away from who I am and certainly very far away from the public perception of who I am. I found it to be very refreshing, something that would sort of make me interested and excited in doing this character everyday. I am very fond of the character, he is very appealing, somebody who has weakness and humour in equal measure, someone who is insecure and funny both, and so I thought that was a very interesting mix to play"
