Emraan happy to reunite with Vidya in 'Ghanchakkar'
After working together in blockbuster movie "The Dirty Picture", actor Emraan Hashmi is excited to team up with Vidya Balan again because he feels it is always better to work with familiar faces.
The duo will be seen in "No One Killed Jessica" famed director Raj Kumar Gupta's "Ghanchakkar". The movie is almost finished and will release in 2013.
"The film is a very unique combination as there is comedy, suspense as well as thrills. It is great to be reuniting with Vidya (Balan) after 'The Dirty Picture'. It was back to being with someone who is familiar to you," Emraan told PTI.
After releasing four films this year - "Jannat 2", "Shanghai", "Raaz 3" and "Rush"- Emraan is on a roll as he has movies like Vishal Bharadwaj's "Ek Thi Daayan", Karan Johar's "Unglee" for next year.
Produced by Johar, "Unglee" is directed by Rensil D'Silva (of "Kurbaan" fame) and Emraan says it is fun working with a new director as he brings in new ideas and methodology of working.
"It is nice to be working on a film like 'Unglee'. Rensil is a very sorted director and what impresses me most is that he is very intelligent as well. It is always good to be working with new people as they come up with fresh ideas.
Also, they bring to fore new things about your own self and acting prowess; it is a new discovery altogether," he added.
The film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Randeep Hooda, Kangana Ranaut and Neha Dhupia.
Emraan's "Ek Thi Daayan" stars three leading ladies - Konkona Sen Sharma, Kalki Koechlin and Huma Qureshi - alongside him.
The actor says the script of the film is very interesting and though it has a supernatural angle it is not a horror movie.
"Yes, there are three women in 'Ek Thi Daayan' but then the film is in a different space. There is a supernatural angle to it but the film is completely different when compared to other horror films. It is a very interesting script and we are aiming for an April release," he added.
Emraan's last release "Rush" didn't do well at the box office but the actor does not seem to mind that and says he did the movie for emotional reasons.
"I had to stick to the film since it was director Shamim Desai's dying wish; he wanted his film to release. I understand that in one's career there are highs and lows but certain decisions are taken keeping emotions and sentiments in mind instead of commercial gains.
"I did my job of ensuring a good release for it and I am happy that it saw good visibility till its release. I am sure Shamim, wherever he is, would be happy," he said.
The actor has also signed another Johar movie, which will reportedly have Deepika Padukone opposite him.
"I can't say much about it because Karan would be making the final announcement around my co-stars in the film," Emraan said.
Besides Bollywood, Emraan has also signed a Hollywood movie with Oscar-winning director Danis Tanovic (of 'No Man's Land' fame). PTI
