After `Dirty Picture`, Emraan wants a clean film next year
Kolkata: After the success of `The Dirty Picture`, actor Emraan Hashmi now wants to make a clean film for a universal audience.
"I guarantee that in the next year I will do a film which will be clean and universal and will be a blockbuster. I won`t be kissing in it. That`s my word," Hashmi told reporters here today.
Confident that after staying for around a decade in Bollywood, he knows what would click at the box office, the 33-year-old actor, often termed as "serial kisser", said, "A kiss isn`t enough to draw the audiences. Good story and performances are important".
Recalling that he started his career as a supporting actor in 2003 with a lot of criticism that he doesn`t fit the bill of a traditional Bollywood hero thanks to his looks and dancing skills, Hashmi said, "Then I started doing films which I believed in".
"But people said that I am a one-film wonder. With films like `Murder` and `Dirty Picture` slowly the acceptance came. The audience lapped me up and I had the satisfaction of trying something new in my career. But it took me 7-8 years to prove," he said.
Hashmi would now be seen in the horror film `Raaz 3` opposite Bipasha Basu.
Just like last year`s `The Dirty Picture`, he would again be essaying the role of a film director.
"My only apprehension was - what if it becomes like `Dirty Picture`. But there my character was very artistic and in `Raaz 3` he makes commercial films."
