While shooting for Abbas-Mustan's Players, Neil reportedly began supervising the choreographers. Neil Nitin Mukesh apparently is extremely active on the sets and likes to give his inputs whether it be scenes or song sequences. However, when Neil advised Sonam on a certain step, she apparently asked him to keep his advice to himself.
Neil was obviously very hurt and quietly left the scene. If sources are to believed, Neil did not speak at all and remained quiet during the entire shoot.
However, when a leading daily contacted him, he laughed it off saying Sonam was a great dancer and it was he who learnt a few steps from her.
Wonder what Sonam has to say about this!
