Emraan Hashmi in an international film
The actor signs his first international film helmed by Oscar winning director Danis Tanovic.
Emraan Hashmi has finally made his big leap on the global map of cinema. Word is that the actor has been signed for Academy Award winning director Danis Tanovic's (No Man's Land) next film. No Man's Land is best remembered in our country as the film that toppled Lagaan for the Best Foreign Film Oscar. Danis' next will be under the collaborative banner of several big production houses.
A source informs, "Emraan has never tried to fit into a conventional stereotype and has always been the one to experiment. Danis is excited to work with Emraan and considers him multi-talented." The Hollywood film is a collaboration of many Indian banners like ASAP Films (France), DAR Motion Pictures, Sikhya Entertainment and AKFPL (Anurag Kashyap Films Pvt Ltd). Emraan was finalised after the director apparently saw his box office records.
Says producer Guneet Monga, Anurag Kashyap Films Pvt Ltd, "It will be very interesting to see the combination of an Indian star, who has mass appeal, and an Oscar-winning director in an international film. We are looking forward to a great collaboration."
