The film will be directed by Tony D'Souza
Not many know this but Emraan Hashmi is all set to become a producer soon, joining the likes of his Bollywood peers like Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and others. Mahesh Bhatt sir, beware... your nephew is ready to give you some tough competition.
His first production will be called Captain Nawab and it will have him play a soldier. This will be for the first time he will be playing a army man in a movie, even though he has played a cop in a few movies like Ungli and Zeher.
He also revealed the first look of the film to popular daily Mirror, which is actually the first look of the character. Interestingly, his uniform is a mix of both Indian and Pakistani uniforms. So does that mean he will be seen traipsing across the border a la Bajrangi Bhaijaan, but in a more action packed way. Speaking to Mirror, the actor says, "That's the DNA of the film. I know it'll spark off assumptions but I'll hold the suspense for now"
The film will be directed by Tony D'Souza, who earlier made Azhar with Emraan Hashmi. The scripting is still underway, though Emraan hints that the film is inspired by true events.
Emraan will start training for the film to nail the soldier role right. He will start with it once he completes the shoot for Milan Luthria's Baadshaho which has just gone on the floors. Ajay Devgn will be his co-star in the film.
