Director Kunal Deshmukh, who teamed up with Emraan Hashmi again for "Jannat 2", says the audiences have suddenly woken up to the actor's talent. He feels Emraan's career graph resembles that of Saif Ali Khan.
"Emraan's career is a lot like Saif Ali Khan's. Saif was the same person... but suddenly after 'Dil Chahta Hai', he turned out to be a cool dude. Something like that has happened with Emraan. He is doing really well," Deshmukh told IANS.
He says Emraan has grown up as an actor ever since he made his debut with "Footpath" in 2003.
"Emraan has not changed, but people have woken up. He is challenging himself. He is bringing a lot to the table. He is ironing on all levels than just in one. Now suddenly it's cool to watch Emraan Hashmi. People are waking up slowly," added Deshmukh.
Deshumukh had earlier worked with Emraan in "Tum Mile" and "Jannat".

"I am also doing films with Sagar Ballary and K.C. Bokadia," Sushant told IANS.

Gaurav Chopra acts in 'Rangbari'
Popular TV actor Gaurav Chopra will now be seen on the silver screen in the upcoming movie "Rangbari", directed by duo Abhimanyu Mishra and Avinash Nandan. He has just finished shooting for the film in Uttar Pradesh.
"The story is hard hitting and revolves around two major events which have been aligned together," Gaurav told IANS.
"It talks about the dynamics of power, and revolves around a person who rises to power because he believes in doing the right thing, in the midst of everything else," he added.
Most of the movie's cast is fresh, and the film promises to be strong in the technical and creative domain.

Oh puhleez!!!! This dude doesnt have a clue what he's on about. When Saif started out in the industry he was dismissed by the critics as a guy who couldnt act but Emraan has been pretty decent right from the start! The only issue with Emraan was he got stuck with that stupid serial kisser tag and was unfortunately under-rated as an actor due to it. Iam truly happy to see Emraan is finally getting his dues.

Emran is definitely unique in the sense he's had to fight for his place in Bollywood. The roles he's played have pretty much been challenging yet thought provoking on the audience. I admit he has a reputation as the serial kisser but he has heart in his performances which is so refreshing opposed to the commercially sell out actors out there.
yess totally true. i don't get why people didn't realize what an amazing actor emraan hashmi was before. He's currently my favorite actor with farhan akhtar a close second. these guys rock bollywood cinema! love you emraan :)
