The bad boy of Hindi cinema, Emraan Hashmi is always known for trying out variegated roles with a different touch to each of them. Tagged as the Serial Kisser from the tinsel town, Emraan has made quite a stir in the past with an array of link ups, kissing scenes and a host of other notorious instances. A favourite of the Bhatt camp, the actor who turned 33 few days back, has already developed a huge fan base for him. But then, how could his loyal fans fail to recognize the star they admire and worship?
All happened on the sets of Dibakar Banerjee’s upcoming flick ‘Shanghai’. In the film, Emraan will be seen sporting a completely new avatar, which is very different from the roles that he has enacted in the past. While he had taken up fitness mantras seriously and had a six pack abs for his last film, Emraan will go for complete make over for his role in Shanghai. The make over made him look so different from what he is in real life that the spectators, some of whom were a bunch of his ardent fans, failed to recognize the star during the shoot for the film.
“Emraan has a huge fan following. Whenever he comes on the sets people call out his name. Surprisingly no one recognized him because Emraan will be seen with a small paunch and buck tooth too,” reveals filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee.
Like Abhay, Emraan too has a complete make over in this film. Emraan plays a small town guy who is an adult film maker and would be using four to five visiting cards. He is a street smart character, one who is always on the lookout to make money. His immensely fetching suave character helps him latch up women for photo shoots for him with conviction. But finally, he is all set to shed off the serial kisser tag with this film. There are no steamy kissing sequences planned in the plot hence, this film will be quite a head turner of sorts.
Moreover, Emraan was reportedly very sporting to undergo the disfiguring make over. Without any hesitation, he got his hands and face browned, teeth discoloured, ears pierced and his under eyes and lips coloured. He even sports an itsy bitsy tattoo in the film, our sources confirm. Ouch! How hideous will it be? You do not need to wait any more as the first look of the film is already available on your television sets.
While Emraan is busy shedding off his serial kisser tag, he is also gearing up to stand hand in hand with A- listed actors of B town today. While the Khans, the Kapoors and the Kumars charge a hefty fee of over 10 crores per movie, Emraan has hiked his price to a whooping ‘Dus crore’ after giving back to back hits in the recent past. Most of his films have worked wonders at the box office and helped the producers rake in all the moolah, so he has decided to claim a share of it from now onwards. While the other clans are a prolific high even after numerous setbacks, flops and poor performances, it is to be seen whether Emraan is able to hold his ground the same way. Considering himself at par with the eminent faces would not just be a solution. Retaining the spot will be a tough job and that’s what we need to wait and watch!
Our question is who will ask Emraan the ‘Sawaal’ of ‘Dus Crore’? Wicked, we must admit!
