Mumbai, April 29 (IANS) He played a painter in the thriller “Raaz - The Mystery Continues” and he will once again essay the role in “Tum Miley”. But Emraan Hashmi will this time get to actually paint to look convincing on screen.
“This time I actually paint. In ‘Raaz’, I wasn’t really able to do much of that. All the paintings were done beforehand and I didn’t get a chance to paint on screen apart from a few strokes,” Emraan told IANS.
In “Tum Miley”, Emran’s newly-discovered painting skills will go a lot further.
“I’m shown to be a far more intricate painter, doing not just brush painting but also charcoal, etc. Here I can’t fake it. I’m using all the skills that I learnt as a painter in ‘Raaz’ for ‘Tum Miley’,” the actor explained.
Emraan says he now seriously intends to pursue his painting.
“And my character in ‘Tum Miley’ is helping me do that. It’s my first intense love story,” he said.
The film is based on the deluge in Mumbai on July 26, 2005. All the scenes depicting the coming together of the leading lady and him during the deluge were shot in one go on a studio set.
Asked if there were any kissing scenes in the film, he said: “It’s my first film with Soha Ali Khan. Do I kiss her? Let that be a secret. I consciously moved away from the serial kisser’s image in ‘Raaz 2′. I don’t want to be known for something so frivolous. I want to move on.”
The actor seems to have moved on from filmmakers Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt in “Tum Miley”, which has been directed Kunal Deshmukh of “Jannat” fame.
“This is a Percept (Picture) film. I won’t say I’ve moved on. But, yes, I want to clear the misconception that I work exclusively for the Bhatts,” said Emraan, who made it big with the Bhatts’ “Murder”.
