Abhay Deol and Emraan Hashmi together in Shanghai

Mumbai: The much expected project of Dibakar Banerjee will bring together two of the best B-town actors, none other than Abhay Deol and Emraan Hashmi. This is the first time that the two will be acting together and the film, which is apolitical thriller will be called ‘Shanghai’. The story of the movie will be based on the book ‘Z’ by Vassilis Vassilikos and it is focused on the murder of a dynamic politician.

The surprise to us all was the fact that Dibakar made the decision of casting Emraan Hashmi in his film, considering that the actor is known as having a serial kisser image, and the director is known for his obsession of casting fresh and unconventional actors.

In a recent interview, the director said that is more than happy to be collaborating with both Abhay and Emraan. He is eager to see the actor playing a character from a hellish Indian little town. About the part that Abhay will play, the director said it is going to be ‘cold, almost vicious character’.
