Emraan Hashmi, who rose to fame by becoming the “serial Kisser” of Bollywood, is now going to make his international debut soon which will be directed by the Academy Award (Oscar) winning director Danis Tanovic.
Emraan Hashmi has been invited to the premier of Danis Tanovic’s latest venture “An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker” at Berlin International Film Festival, he feels this movie will be the perfect platform for him to prove that he is among India’s finest actors.
Hashmi who is super excited about the movie said “It is high concept story, has an Indian team behind it and a director like Danis, who has a lot of clout globally. I am hoping that this film will open all the doors for me as an actor”.
Tanovic has become world famous after winning the Oscar award for the Best Foreign Language movie for the war drama ‘No Man’s Land’ in 2001 which also beat our Indian movie “Lagaan” that year in the respective category.
His next movie which does not have a title yet will be produced by Anurag kashyap Films Ltd along with Sikhya Entertainment and Cinemorphic. It stars Emraan Hashmi in the lead role and has strong indian connect in terms of script, details of other cast are yet to be revealed.
Emraan Hashmi made his debut back in 2003 with Footpath and has established himself in the Bollywood after delivering hits like Murder(2004), Gangster(2005), Jannat(2007), Once upon a time in Mumbai(2010). He also won lot of critical acclamation for his performance in the movie “Shanghai” which actually made Tanovic choose him for his next movie. Hope Tanovic’s movie paves path for Emraan to become an international star soon.
