Well, this is news! In a day and age where several Bollywood actors are vying for a Hollywood role, the guy who landed one didn’t seem to be the likeliest of candidates. Director Mahesh Bhatt posted on Twitter saying that Emraan Hashmi has signed a Hollywood film with director Danis Tanovic of No Man’s Land fame (you may remember it as the movie that ultimately won the Oscar award for Best Foreign Language Film the same year that Lagaan had been nominated). Here’s the news doing the rounds about the film!
Tanovic was apparently keen on working with Emraan after he saw a few of his films, and called his team to have a discussion. Once that was done, he flew to India and had a rather long meeting with Emraan, which turned out well and sealed the deal. I have to say, it’s amazing the kind of journey Emraan has had – he rarely used to be taken seriously thanks to his serial kisser tag, but he’s actually a really good actor and he seems to be getting his due now! What do you think?
