I want riskier films: Emraan HashmiMay 9th, 2012 - 7:23 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, May 9 (IANS) He is tasting success film after film, but Emraan Hashmi is not willing to fit into the category of Bollywood’s A-list stars. He doesn’t want to play it safe and says he is ready to take risks just as he has done with every project so far.
“I have never really wanted to sort myself and other actors by that list. I have always done films that I believed in and yes it is very important for box office collections to do well. I have never really wanted to belong,” the 33-year-old said here.
The actor has delivered consecutive hits with “Murder 2″, “The Dirty Picture” and “Jannat 2″.
“I’d rather not belong to a particular list and just do films I probably did four years back. I don’t want to get safer with the success of ‘Jannat 2′. I want to do riskier films and make them a success,” he added.
He also admits that the masses’ verdict matters over the classes’ opinion for him.
“I hold the verdict of the people who watch films cinematically in single screens very close to my heart. I go to single screens to watch the reaction of the people. For me that is a big reward. I have always wanted to be a strong mass actor,” said Emraan.
Emraan’s next is Dibakar Banerjee’s “Shanghai” in which he plays Joginder Parmar, a porn filmmaker. He is also set to work in his first ‘U’ certified film.
