Emraan Hashmi on THE Actor That Has Bad a “Profound Impact” on Him, Both For His Work and Personality
Emraan Hashmi was all praises for Shah Rukh Khan at the Bard of Blood premiere. He revealed he felt guilty while cursing at him in the promotional video for the series but his opinion surely differs in reality!
Actor Emraan Hashmi has been promoting his first web series Bard of Blood in full swing. Produced by superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s production house Red Chillies Entertainment, King Khan has been working closely with the Jism actor. Emraan was interacting with the media at the show’s premiere in Mumbai and was all praises for SRK – both for his work and personality. Not too long ago, Netflix India released a promotional clip on the Bard of Blood and it brought together Shah Rukh and Emraan. Speaking about it, the latter said, “"I felt bad because in that video, I used some bad words for Shah Rukh Khan.”
But his feelings for the Bollywood Badshah are completely different in real life. “He has a very profound impact on me as an artist and as a person, because I have grown up watching his films. But in that video, I referred him as Dhakkan (stupid) and Dabba (idiot) and then I put a cloth bag on his head so, I felt bit embarrassing doing that but we had to shoot it for professional reasons."
Emraan added, "It was really a nice concept and I feel we should praise him (Shah Rukh) for that, because I don’t think any other actor at his level would have that kind of self-deprecating humour in a video. Therefore, I feel that he is fantastic in whatever he does." The Netflix series will trace the life of an ex-RAW agent Kabir Anand Hashmi, who goes on a mission with two team members to rescue Indian spies captured in Balochistan. "I think the mission which we have shown in the series and the script are really interesting. I feel the way people have appreciated its trailer and the way its buzz is increasing by the day, it excites me to imagine how people will react to it,” mentioned an excited Emraan ahead of the show’s release.
