Brainless to cover small celebrity issues on TV: Emraan

Mumbai: Actor Emraan Hashmi plays a crime reporter in his forthcoming film `Rush` and feels there is more important news out there than covering celebrity issues.

"There is more important news out there. If you want to show breaking news - like a star slapping someone in a restaurant - if that becomes a breaking news and runs the whole day, I think that`s something unimaginable. I think, there are some more relevant stories, anything else, but not this," the 33-year-old said here Tuesday in an interview.

He feels that celebrity news should be shown as "a small snippet".

"How can you keep playing the loop the entire day? That`s just a no-brainer, there is nothing there, but again the people are watching it," he added.

When asked which recent case would interest him as a crime reporter, Emraan said: "I remember seeing Aarushi`s (murder) case. I think that was something that baffled everyone at that time and even now... it is something, you know, will always be a kind of question mark."

He added that he followed the news despite his busy schedule and constant travelling.

"I think, that is one piece that I have followed the most. It was very shocking because it`s kind of very close to our world. We get shocked when it`s probably close to our world," he said.

Directed by Priyanka Desai and late Shamin Desai, "Rush" also stars Neha Dhupia, Sagarika Ghatge and Aditya Pancholi and hits theatres Friday.
