It was nothing short of a farcical faux pas when clothes meant for Emraan Hashmi in Mumbai were carried to Imran Khan in Chandigarh leaving the two stars amused and the production house common to both the projects, a little red-faced.
There is Imran Khan. And there is Emraan Hashmi. And the two shall never meet. Or at least one can safely say they lead very different personal and professional lives.
Until now when they are both part of two different films produced by Vishal Bhardwaj. And now we hear there was a massive confusion over their identical names, though spelt differently, within Vishal Bhardwaj's production team eventuating in outrageous miscommunication regarding the requirements of the two actors.
Says a source from Vishal's team, "Though Emraan was shooting for Ek Thi Daayan in Film City, Mumbai and Imran was on location in Chandigarh for Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, clothes meant for Emraan in Film City were transported to Imran in Chandigarh. "
It was left to the two stars to see the lighter side of the confusion created by their similar-sounding names. We hear the Imran and Emraan were highly amused when the production team insisted on sending shooting-material to the wrong Imran/Emraan.
Says the team member, "We were even able to joke about it. Some of us suggested that perhaps wearing Emraan's clothes would make Imraan a terrific kisser. Luckily Emraan and Imran saw the lighter side of the mix-up."
