With back-to-back hits, actor Emraan Hashmi’s success ratio is being compared to that of blockbuster king Salman Khan. Emraan says it’s an honour to be compared to the star.
‘I hope my films keep becoming hits, and being compared to Salman is a huge honour,’ the 33-year-old said here Sunday at a theatre during the screening of Raaz 3.
However, he feels he still has a long way to go. ‘I think I have got a lot of work to do, I have been in the industry for just nine years. He is a senior and very encouraging,’ added Emraan.
Emraan’s recent films — Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, Murder 2, The Dirty Picture, Jannat 2 and Shanghai — received a fairly good response at the box office, and his latest movie Raaz 3, which released Friday, also got a good opening.
Meanwhile, when asked why he features in only bold films, Emraan said: ‘No one gives me such [universal] films. When someone gives me a universal subject, I’ll do it.’ Emraan’s forthcoming films include Ghanchakkar, Ek Thi Daayan and Unglee.
