YRF - Emraan Hashmi film not called off yet
Of late there were rumours around Emraan Hashmi opting out of a Yash Raj film. However, the fact of the matter is that these are, well, rumours. Talks on the film are still on and Emraan along with Chopras continue to be in constant touch to figure out logistics pertaining to the film before making an official announcement.
"It is plain speculation that Emraan has said no to the Chopras. As a matter of fact he has been meeting them on a regular basis and was recently spotted in their office as well. Rumours around him not doing the film have been spread by mischievous elements", says a mutual associate, "Yash Raj Films is a premium production house and makes a definite value add to an actor's profile. On the other hand, the kind of high that Emraan has been enjoying, all top production houses of the country are interested in him coming on board. It is a mutually win-win situation for both."
However, it was being insinuated that it is this very reason which has led to a choc-o-block date diary for Emraan, as a result of which he had to pick and choose between films. Since he has recently signed Karan Johar's production and is also busy with at least three other films, there was apparently no time available for Yash Raj's next.
"Emraan is still interested in the film and so are Chopras to rope him in", the associate continues, "It is just that Emraan has been busy with Jannat 2 and hasn't signed anything new for a while. The film has escalated his stocks further since now he has fifth success in a row after The Dirty Picture, Murder 2, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai and Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji. He is being careful about his newer choices and the Yash Raj film stays in the contention to fall in his kitty. Neither has there been a conversation breakdown nor are Chopras hunting for a replacement yet. They are meeting and the final call is waiting to be taken. Wait for an announcement soon."
With an air of secrecy around the project, no one is willing to go on record yet about the eventual decision. As expected, when contacted Emraan wasn't available for comment.
