Emraan Hashmi: Being compared to Salman Khan an honour
Mumbai: 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.’
