Mumbai: Actor Emraan Hashmi, who is gearing up for the release of ‘Ghanchakkar’, his first comedy, says the film`s director Raj Kumar Gupta is the biggest `ghanchakkar`.

Co-written by Gupta and Parvez Sheikh, ‘Ghanchakkar’ features Emraan as a forgetful Maharashtrian guy Sanjay Athray and Vidya Balan as his loud Punjabi wife Neetu.

"In this film, Raj Kumar Gupta has made us `ghanchakkar`. Raj looks very sweet and simple, but I don`t think he is. He is the biggest `ghanchakkar`," Emraan said here in an interview.

"His (Gupta) and our writer Parvez`s mind is so much twisted that the kind of script they have written, I can confidently say that when you all will watch the film, you all will become `ghanchakkar`," he added.

So far, Emraan has played intense, negative and romantic roles on-screen, but "Ghanchakkar" is his first light-hearted drama and his favourite too.

"This character is one of my favourite characters. A guy who is not trying to be too funny, but he is inherently a huge Ghanchakkar," Emraan, who won applause for his character-driven roles in films like ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’, ‘The Dirty Picture’ and ‘Ek Thi Daayan’.

"Everyone in the film will make you laugh," he added.

‘Ghanchakkar’ hits theatres June 28.
