After his last release Baadshaho, Emraan Hashmi is going to start shooting for his next, Captain Nawab, in which he plays an army man. With this film, the actor will be debuting as a producer.
When asked about the film he said , “It is inspired by a real event but eventually it is a fictional piece of work. This has been sourced out from true happenings in our country, there is some element of fiction added. But it doesn’t go into the masala zone. It is very gritty, very real. It is an entertaining war drama thriller.”
He added, “It has a sense of realism and at the same time it is entertaining. Bringing together these two things is a challenge but I am sure we will be up for it.” The film will go on the floors next month, but before that, Emraan will start Preparation for the film, Says Emraan, “I will be starting workshops from the second week of September, which will include reading sessions with Malvika (his co-star) and Tony (D’Souza, director). We will also have a dialect coach for Urdu and Punjabi. He will help us to get the diction right for our respective characters. Also, I’ll be working on my physique as the role requires a leaner look as compared to Baadshaho.”
