Actor Emraan Hashmi isn’t new to Bollywood but its only after delivering continuous hits with movies like ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai’, ‘Murder 2’, ‘The Dirty Picture’ and ‘Jannat 2’ that the actor is finally getting offers from mainstream production houses.
“I never wanted to be part of any list of actors, I have always worked in projects that I believed in. I would rather walk my own path and do the kind of films that I want to do. I don't want to be bracketed,” said Emraan Hashmi to a daily in an interview.
The actor has final got offers from big production houses like Yash Raj Films and Dharma Productions recently.
“I have great respect for these production houses (Dharma Productions and Yash Raj Films). I am very happy that everyone is now understanding my cinema, seeing me as a mainstream actor, which is a big thing,” he said.
“Right now, I don’t want to make any announcement as far as that film goes or any other film goes. There is no formal announcement but I have been talking to producers. As and when they make the announcement, there will be a launch and then everyone would know,” he added.
Apparently the movie by Dharma productions is being directed by Rensil D'Silva and the one with Yash Raj Films by Parmeet Sethi.
There have been rumors that Emraan Hashmi had rejected a Yash Raj Chopra film earlier as he couldn’t accommodate the required dates for the movie.
“I can't talk about it...I can't reveal anything...I talk about films that I have signed,” he said.
The actor is happy that his movies are finally being appreciated by one and all.
“I always wanted my films to reach out to larger section of audience. I'm very happy that my kind of films are doing well,” he said.
When asked if he ever aspired to work with YRF production house he said, “I aspired to work in good films with good subjects, good roles. I have always gauged films on subject level. And with these producers, whenever they are going to announce the films, they will do so.”
“Obviously I like the films that they make, it is a great combination of the kind of cinema I do and they do, so it merges together and something interesting comes out...and it is a great team,” he concluded.
Emraan Hashmi’s next movie is ‘Shanghai’, which also stars Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin, will release on 8 June, 2012.
