This week on The Front Row, Anupama Chopra is in conversation with Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan, discussing their film Ghanchakkar (due to release on June 28th). Read on to see excerpts from the interview, with Emraan explaining why he never smiles while on the sets.
Anupama Chopra: Is it true Emraan that you don’t smile very often? I read that one of the running jokes on the sets of Ghanchakkar was that, “Aapne Emraan ko haste huye dekha hai?”
Emraan Hashmi: Yes, I don’t. I am wired up on a film set. I believe there has to be some amount of vulnerability when you are performing. When I realize I am extremely confident in a scene, I know I am not going to deliver my best. So, I always need to be in that zone. You see I never wanted to be an actor, I just discovered this as a job 12 years back. It takes a lot out of me to perform. I think it’s easier for Vidya. She is spontaneous as an actress. It takes lot out of me so I always need to be in that zone because if I get out of it, it’s very difficult for me to pop back in. So, that’s the reason probably.
