Emraan says, “I’m happy that I have now got a role where I can explore a lot with my looks. This character is not even a glimpse of what you have seen of Emraan Hashmi in all the 20 films before this. It’s drastically different, you won’t even recognize me.”
“I lost quite a bit of weight for Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai and bulked up a bit for Dil Toh… and I have to grow fat for Shanghai, so my body has been going through a roller coaster ride,” Hashmi told PTI
Emraan Hashmi had to undo the hours spent working out as he started shooting for Dibakar Bannerjee’s ‘Shanghai’, where he now sports a paunch.
Who would have imagined Abhay sporting a moustache or Emraan moving away from his romantic image?” said a delighted Banerjee to a leading daily.
Shanghai is slated to release on June 8, 2012, under the PVR Pictures banner.
