Is Emraan a serious contender for Top-10 slot?Once tagged as someone who could entice only the mass audience in B and C canters, Emraan has briskly made his way to the top, giving serious competition to his contemporaries. If one has a quick look at his future crop of films, it is evident that he is doing good enough to be catapulted to the astral league.
THE DIRTY PICTURE stills
'To begin with, let's leave aside the Khans (Salman, Aamir, Shahrukh), Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Hrithik Roshan, and Saif Ali Khan - they are in their own league. From the younger crop, for different roles, Imran Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi are the main leads that producers have in mind while casting,' says an industry veteran who confirms that Emraan has made an impressive journey to the top.
While for now, everyone's focus is on THE DIRTY PICTURE, Emraan's next big release after a hurricane called MURDER 2, while the year ahead promises to be quite eventful as well.
On being contacted, Emraan expectedly refrained from commenting on his accentuated star status. 'Everyone has his own space; I have my own. I am doing good films and not really thinking about numbers or sticking to solo or multi-hero projects. If a story has good enough justification for the presence of two leading men, I am game. You can see that in THE DIRTY PICTURE and SHANGHAI, right?' he asked.
One look at the line up of Emraan and his contemporaries pretty much paints the true picture:
Imran Khan - Currently playing - MERE BROTHER KI DULHAN. Film in hand - EK MAIN AUR EKK TU
Ranbir Kapoor - Immediate release - ROCKSTAR. Film in hand - BARFEE
Shahid Kapoor - Immediate release - MAUSAM. Film in hand - Untitled project with Kunal Kohli, co-starring Priyanka Chopra
Emraan Hashmi - Immediate release - THE DIRTY PICTURE. Films in hand - SHANGHAI, JANNAT 2, RAAZ 3, DAAYAN, MURDER 3
