Hashmi offered YRF’s next


‘The Dirty Picture’ got Vidya Balan a lot of glittering awards. As for Emraan Hashmi, the film brought in offers from the biggest production houses in the Hindi cinema industry. Emraan, who has reportedly been roped in for Karan Johar’s production to be directed by Rensil D’Silva, has now signed a film with Yash Raj Films, reveal industry insiders. According to the source, Emraan Hashmi has been roped in for YRF’s next, to be directed by Parmeet Sethi, who had earlier made ‘Badmaash Company’ with the production house. Emraan is currently shooting for Vikram Bhatt’s ‘Raaz 3’. And though the formalities of the YRF venture are still underway, Emraan is apparently quite excited about his role. Emraan Hashmi, who has reportedly signed films with two of the biggest production houses of the Hindi film industry, Yash Raj Films and Dharma Productions, refused to reveal anything about his future projects with the big companies. He simply said, “When there’s a formal announcement, I will be in a position to say something,” and added, “I have always looked up to both the production houses. They have made some cult films.” And though films have always fascinated him, film awards haven’t. Talking about his co-star Vidya Balan sweeping all the awards for ‘The Dirty Picture’, Emraan simply said that he is happy for her. “I don’t want awards. I am not saying this like it’s a case of sour grapes. It isn’t. I have been to a couple of award functions and I soon realised that it doesn’t give me the kick that it does to others,” he added.
