‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ my rebirth in Bollywood: Emraan Hashmi
New Delhi: Having done his fair share of horrors, thrillers and action movies in his 12-year-long career, actor Emraan Hashmi is now seeking a rebirth with “Hamari Adhuri Kahani”, which is an out-an-out romantic film.
The 36-year-old actor says deciding to star in the upcoming film is not an attempt to shed his on-screen image of a con-man, or a serial kisser, but rather an effort to broaden his range as an actor.
Also, Emraan feels with time he has become responsible and disciplined and he wants that to reflect in his cinema choices.
“It is not so much about getting away from what I have been doing. It has more to do with my concern and priority as an actor. I want to see myself doing something else. When you reach that point in your life, you want cinema to reflect that. It might be a lot of things in your life- getting married, having a kid- all these things bring about changes,” Emraan told PTI.
“This was the best way to do it. This is what I was looking for – a rebirth. What I have been doing has been great I am thankful to the 12 years. But something else needed to be done because I have crossed that stage where I want to do something new,” he said.
“Hamari Adhuri Kahani” has been directed by Mohit Suri and produced by Mahesh Bhatt under the banner Vishesh Films and Fox Star Studios. It will release on June 12.
Emraan said every actor should constantly make an effort to reinvent themselves in order to avoid monotony in their lives as well as the audience’s. He is glad that the film came to him at the right point in his career because he had not touched upon hard core romance before.
“Actors have different stages in their career. You can’t do the same thing over and over again. There is a cycle, it generally lasts between 10 to 14 years. Even the audience does not want to see the same thing. So, you need to change the cycle. It means you need to revitalise, look for new content,” the actor said.
