New Delhi, July 7 (Calcutta Tube) Emraan Hashmi is very happy acting and, unlike other stars, says he will not move an inch away from front of the camera to take on responsibilities of directing or producing films until he’s booed out by audiences.
‘Not at the moment. I’ll act till the audiences kick me out or boo me out from the halls, saying we don’t want to watch this man’s movies’ any more…I’ll think about doing something else then,’ Emraan told IANS.
The actor has repeatedly portrayed roles with negative shades in movies like ‘Gangster’, ‘Jannat’ and the upcoming ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’.
Asked if he was being typecast, Emrann said while the roles were all ‘dark’, they were still different.
‘Most of my characters have dark tones and are anti-establishment. They rebel…They have similar traits. But it would be typecasting if I do one role again and again.
Shah Rukh Khan plays a lover boy in every film…that doesn’t typecast him. He plays an eternal romantic character on screen. If I play an angry young man or a hot blooded criminal in every film…that might typecast me but not these,’ he said.
Kangana is undervalued by Bollywood: Milan Luthria
Having directed her in upcoming gangster film ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’, Milan Luthria can’t stop raving about Kangana Ranaut’s acting skills and says she is yet to have her moment of glory in Bollywood.
‘Kangana is undervalued by our industry. She is immensely talented but has yet not touched the highest spot. But we’ll see her there in a very short while,’ Luthria told IANS.
‘She brings to the screen a lot of sensuality and glamour. She carries off even skimpy outfits and different kind of looks. She is someone who has the body and the face to carry that,’ he added.
The 23-year-old has bagged critical acclaim for her performance in movies like ‘Gangster’, ‘Woh Lamhe’, ‘Life in a… Metro’ and ‘Fashion’.
Luthria had words of praise for Emraan Hashmi as well and said both of them were similar in some ways.
‘Both Emraan and Kangana are very flamboyant in their approach. They’ve lived very dangerously with the kind of roles they’ve done and have always pushed the envelope…
‘That’s what has given them a very commercial connect with the audience. They are like underdogs and do things that others don’t,’ the director added.
I’ll certainly direct some day: Imran Khan
Imran Khan is just four films old, but he is already toying with the idea of turning director later in life.
‘I would certainly like to direct a film some time but not in the near future. Right now I’ve really got my hands full in acting and I am getting to do work that I like,’ Imran told IANS.
‘It’s very satisfying for me; so right now I am not going to stretch into direction but it is something that I really intend to do,’ he said.
After ‘I Hate Love Storys’, the 27-year-old will be next seen in ‘Delhi Belly’ and ‘Break Ke Baad’.
