Actor Emraan Hashmi underwent complete makeover for Dibakar Banerjee’s Shanghai and the impact was such that actor went unrecognised.
“Emraan has a huge fan following.
Whenever he comes, people call out his name.
Surprisingly no one recognised him (during the shoot of Shanghai) because Emraan sported a small paunch and buck tooth too,” Banerjee commented.
Shanghai is a political thriller, which also features Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin.
On Emraan’s character, Banerjee said, “Emraan plays a small town guy, a street smart character.
He is always on the lookout to make money and once in a while does sidey night shoots.
If he sees a girl, he will sweet talk her into getting a photo shoot done.
Actually, he is a very lovable character with tremendous depth.” The film will release June 8.
