“I am not cut out for film direction” – Naseruddin Shah

en Bollywood News “I am not cut out for film direction” – Naseruddin Shah

Emraan Hashmi is in a dilemma! The actor has two releases lined up back to back -- GOOD BOY BAD BOY and THE TRAIN. In the former, he plays a bad boy and in the latter, the good boy. Hey, I am slightly bad in THE TRAIN too, Emraan laughs aloud as we catch up on his professional life.

Playing a bad guy comes easy to him. Notice Emraans choice of roles and youd realize that the talented actor has rarely portrayed the seedha-saadha, sharif hero in his films. I am attracted to roles with grey shades. It makes me appear more real. We all make mistakes in life. It doesnt make you a baddie as long as you rectify those mistakes. My roles portray this reality, he says.

While GOOD BOY BAD BOY is slated for release on 11th May, THE TRAIN follows in the immediate week -- on 18th May. Id be lying if I said I am not nervous. I am tense I am scared, Emraan states with utmost honesty, But the two films are as diverse as chalk and cheese. GOOD BOY BAD BOY is a fun film, targeted at the youth, while THE TRAIN is a thriller, emphasizing on drama. The genres are different, the stories are different, my look in these two films is different as well. As for the release date, its the producers prerogative to finalize it, not the actors. An actor has no say in it, he admits.

Give me a gist of the two films. I havent watched GOOD BOY BAD BOY yet, but the subject has great potential. It caters to the young audience. THE TRAIN, on the other hand, boasts of very good music, besides edge of the seat drama. Its a fresh idea. Hasnain and Raksha made a good film in THE KILLER. Irrespective of how it fared at the box-office, you cannot deny that they know their job well, he says.

Theres yet another film on the cards -- an important film in Emraans career. Its called AWARAPAN, directed by the supremely talented Mohit Suri [ZEHER, KALYUG, WOH LAMHE]. AWARAPAN should turn things around for me. Its a challenging role. With AWARAPAN, we are also breaking into a market we didnt explore before. A majority of my films were targeted at the domestic market, but AWARAPAN goes beyond the shores of India. We are looking at exploiting its potential in Overseas markets since AWARAPAN holds universal appeal, Emraan adds.

Emraan has also decided to do away with kissing his heroines on screen. I am moving away from that. Everything reaches a saturation point after a while. Right now, I am exploring a new territory, building my career all over again. Thats my resolution for now, he says.
