I would love to be part of short films says, Emraan Hashmi


Emraan Hashmi who was present at the screening of short film ‘Karta Tu, Dharta Tu’ on Sunday during media interaction said, he would love to be part of short films.

“I would love to be part of short films, being an actor and a creative person, I would do any format. It could be the web, regional, films television, anything. I think it’s an actor’s job to go out there and own his craft and do as many things as possible. I would love to do short films but the writing has to be good, that’s very important and there is a lot of talent out there.” Said Emraan, when asked if he would be interested in action for short films.

He also spoke about being a fan of the short film concept, he said, “I think I have kind of become a fan of the short film format, it’s fantastic. In a short period of time, you are trying to entertain, throw a light on a subject, educates the audience and be informative. It’s a challenge. And I think short films are a great form of entertainment because the web is the future and these small capsules can captivate a person’s time and imagination. In a fast paced world like ours, they are the future.”

The actor when asked about his recent release Baadshaho and his character being loved by the audience, he said “It’s always nice to be appreciated; we worked on the film for almost a year. Everyone is loving it and collections in an industry like this, is not easy. Friday was a relief, it opened up with big numbers, Saturday it picked up and today hopefully there will be bigger numbers. I am just happy that everyone is being appreciated for their hard work and it’s being paid off so it’s a big relief.”

When asked if he is expecting the film to cross the 100 crores number and how the fraternity has responded to the film, Emraan said, “I don’t know how the fraternity is reacting but the audience has loved it so fingers crossed for this week also. I don’t rate films based on box office money. I think we are way past that now, appreciation is very important. For me film it maybe feature or short, if people like films and they give you a thumbs up that’s all matters. Of course, there is the matter of economics, who have put in the money should earn their bit and their profits, that is important too but I don’t really give attention to the mark up of 100 crores and stuff.”

Emraan was last seen in Baadshaho directed by Mial Luthria with Ajay Devgan Esha Gupta and Ileana D’cruz. His future projects include Remo D’souza’s ‘Badtameez’ and ‘Captain Nawab’.
