My films should reflect my thinking: Emraan Hashmi
The actor says he is now focused on good stories and doesn't want to do films just for the heck of it anymore
Emraan Hashmi is not eager to be part of another instalment of Raaz or Murder franchise and says he now wants to do films that reflect his thinking.
"There was a phase when I was doing whatever was being offered to me without doing any analysis. At that time, I didn't want to sit at home and kept on working. But at this moment, I am very focused on good stories, and don't want to do films just for the heck of it," he says.
"I am not the same person I was 5 or 6 years back. So, when people ask me if I will do Raaz or Murder, I don't think I will get into that. I would like to do films that reflect my thinking," he adds. The actor was in the national capital to promote Baadshaho along with Ajay Devgn, Esha Gupta and Ileana D'Cruz.
Directed by Milan Luthria, Baadshaho is set against the backdrop of Emergency (1975-1977). It follows the fictional story of six people who try to bring about a change in their destiny by pulling off a heist. Emraan says Baadshaho, which is slated to release on September 1, is a very different script.
Luthria also praised Emraan for his dedication, and says that he is confident that his character in Baadshaho will the "most entertaining" in his career.
"Emraan is a mix of instinct and deep thinking. He doesn't show it to others, but I know that he puts in a lot of effort to prepare for the role. I can say with confidence that character in the film will be the most entertaining in his career," says the director.
