Did Dibakar err?

Fans of Dibakar Banerjee are a worried lot after he decided to cast Emraan Hashmi in his political-thriller film Shanghai

After three back to back films that were hugely appreciated, Dibakar Banerjee’s next, Shanghai, has been announced. But despite the name, it won’t be shot in China. This political thriller is being eagerly awaited by his fans, especially since it stars Abhay Deol, who did his thing so well in Dev D. But the same fans are starting to worry a bit now that word is out that Emraan Hashmi is also part of the star cast. After all, Emraan’s It is common knowledge that Hashmi’s expressions and acting talent are concentrated in his lip area; this time, he can’t really kiss his way through the role! A departure from his previous genre, Shanghai is a comparatively big-budget film for Dibakar, so maybe he’s trying to cover his bases by casting a popular star like Hashmi with an actor like Deol. To complicate the whole scenario, Emraan will be showing off a paunch for this one, so won’t even have his toned abs on display for the girls to gawk at. Shanghai will be produced by PVR; in fact, after Raajneeti became such a huge commercial hit, more producers are keen on investing in political thrillers. For now, the most important task for Dibakar is to get Emraan to avoid being the serial kissing hero we all know so well.
