Mumbai: Filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee, who has brought actors Emraan Hashmi and Abhay Deol together for the first time for his film "Shanghai", says they will be seen in a new light in his movie.

"I have been aware of how people look at Abhay... they see him as this black sheep and dark horse. And I know when people think of Emraan, they think of a kiss. But in this film, equations will change and they will be seen in a very different light," Dibakar told reporters.

"I needed two characters who were dramatically different in this film. Abhay came in first and then I pursued Emraan. They`ll be breaking all kinds of stereotypes in this film," added the director of "Khosla Ka Ghosla" and "Love Sex Aur Dhokha".

"Shanghai" will go on floors this April.
