Emraan Hashmi’s Hollywood film based on Pakistani whistle-blower

Though it is time for Emraan Hashmi to get ready for his next release Raja Natwarlal, the actor has two other releases which were supposed to hit the silver screen this year. One is the much awaited Karan Johar venture Ungli which also stars Kangna Ranaut and Sanjay Dutt and the other is Emraan’s Hollywood venture White Lies.

While his former co-star Bipasha Basu too is awaiting her Hollywood release, Emraan Hashmi too joined hands with Danis Tanovic for White Lies. Now, Emraan revealed that they will be showcasing it on different Film festivals soon. Along with that, he also stated that the film is based on the real life story of a Pakistani whistle-blower and his fight against the corrupt system. Normally, films based on real life incidents often have setbacks but denying any such issues, Emraan maintained that it is a documented thing and they are not trying to malign anyone’s image.

However, the film is finding it difficult to release in India, since the team of White Lies are still in search of distributors for the same. But this has not deterred Emraan’s spirit and the actor is really looking forward to the response it is going to garner at the International Film Festivals. He claims that after going through all the phases, the film will surely have a proper release.

Emraan also stated that though a normal film takes about a year to complete, their schedule and the post production together took about a year and a half because the film was spread across the world.

After Ghanchakkar, Emraan is all set for a Disney India film Raja Natwarlal where he plays a conman. Directed by Kunal Deshmukh, the film stars Humaima Malick along with Paresh Rawal and Kay Kay Menon. It is slated to release on August 29.
