I love characters that people can relate to: Emraan Hashmi

Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi will soon be seen in the essaying the role of crime reporter in his next film ‘Rush’. The actor says that his character is very real but is kept as a suspense to add the element of entertainment.

We have tried to make the character as genuine as possible, but have added a commercial touch to the story as well. We have shown an authentic world about TRPs and breaking news and have added murder and suspense around it to make it more interesting.

Hashmi said.

Directed by the late Shamin Desai, the film also features Aditya Pancholi, Neha Dhupia and Sagarika Ghatge in major roles. Talking about his character, he says,

There are a lot of journalists and news anchors who come to mind when you read the script. But it is a combination of many and it is a completely fictional world.

he said.

The actor also admits to having developed much respect for journalists after completing this film.

There is no media bashing in the film. After my research, I have new found respect for journalists. They have to abide by deadlines and have a moral and ethical code. It is a very courageous job.

he said.

Talking about the characters that he has done so far, he loves to do roles that people relate to.

My characters always do wrong things and then there is redemption. This is why people can relate to them. This has become my persona on screen. I find this fascinating.

he said. The movie is all set to hit the screens Oct 24.
