When Emraan went incognito on ‘Shanghai’ setApril 23rd, 2012 - 5:51 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 23 (IANS) Actor Emraan Hashmi underwent complete makeover for Dibakar Banerjee’s “Shanghai” and the impact was such that actor went unrecognised.
“Emraan has a huge fan following. Whenever he comes, people call out his name. Surprisingly no one recognised him (during the shoot of ‘Shanghai’) because Emraan sported a small paunch and buck tooth too,” Banerjee said in a statement.
“Shanghai” is a political thriller, which also features Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin.
Of Emraan’s character, Banerjee said: “Emraan plays a small town guy, a street smart character.”
“He is always on the lookout to make money and once in a while does sidey night shoots. If he sees a girl, he will sweet talk her into getting a photo shoot done. Actually, he is a very lovable character with tremendous depth.”
The film will release June 8.
