Known for his serial kisser image in the industry, Emraan Hashmi has had a total makeover in Dibakar Banerjee’s upcoming thriller ‘Shanghai’.
Talking about the films that he chooses to do, Emraan says “I would hate to play it safe. It’s just not the word for me. Be it a comedy, a thriller or a rom-com, I’m game for all. And I believe in giving myself up to the director completely. As an actor, he can make me do whatever he wants”
In Shanghai, Emraan will be sporting the flab and buck tooth. He says the script was enough to convince him to do the part.
Says Dibakar Banerjee, who has directed films like Oye Lucky Lucky Oye and Love Sex Aur Dhoka “He read the script, liked it and told me, ‘I am on. Let’s do it. You tell me how and when. Emraan has a colourful character. He is a small town video-grapher called Joginder Parmar who, according to the situation, will project himself as a filmmaker, fashion photographer or a press photographer.”
‘Shanghai’ also starring Abhay Deol will be releasing on June 8th 2012. The film is produced under the PVR Pictures banner.
