Emraan Hashmi has had enough. Despite delivering one success after another, there have been rumours and speculations around his personal and professional relationship with his relatives and mentors, the Bhatts. Even though they have just given a success in the form of Jannat 2, the fact that the Bhatts have roped in Randeep Hooda for a couple of films and haven’t announced any new projects with Emraan (leaving aside Raaz 3 which was an old commitment) has fuelled the rumours further about all not being well.
No wonder, Emraan has decided to come clean once for and all and goes on record to lay these rumours to rest.
“There is nothing to state actually since all these stories which are popping from these so-called sources are completely inaccurate”, says Emraan in a matter of fact tone, “My relationship with them is still very strong. We promoted ‘Jannat 2’ together and then we have also completed ‘Raaz 3’. As for the talks around them roping in other actors then come on, why don’t we understand that theirs is a film production company and for certain scripts they have to take those actors who suit them better.”
He is obviously referring to films like Blood Money and Aashique 2 that do not feature him.
“They have done so earlier as well when Kunal Khemu was roped in for ‘Kalyug’. But then even I am working with Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji on many films, right?” he questions back, “Such thoughts around we working with other people are only for those who have a camp mentality. Par haamare beech mein aisa kuch nahi hai. When Bhatt saab feels that there is a character where I fit in best, he woulddefinitely call me.”
With the Bhatts getting busy with other actors in Jism 2, Murder 3, Aashique 2, and Emraan too moving on with Shanghai, Ek Thi Daayan, Ghanchakkar and a film each with Karan Johar and (most likely) Yash Raj Films, it would be interesting to see when that call happens.
