Mumbai, “Invisible” is the film that Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt’s most successful protege Emraan Hashmi will star in, thereby ending media speculation that the actor has been in two minds about doing a project for the banner that kickstarted his career.
While Mahesh Bhatt, with typical insouciance, dismisses the unsavoury rumours and confirms their new collaboration is titled “Invisible”, a source close to the project sniggers, “We really don’t who stands to gain from these reports about Emraan being ‘miffed’ with Bhatt sahab because of announcements suggesting the star is doing another film with the Bhatts.”
“Emraan shares the kind of rapport with Mahesh Bhatt where Bhatt sahab only has to ask, and Emraan would do the film. But the Bhatts have never believed in mixing professional and personal relations. If they did, they would’ve launched Bhatt sahab’s son Rahul long ago. Every actor who works with Vishesh Films is free to choose the projects he or she wants. And that goes for Emraan as well,” the source added.
Confirming that the project with his nephew Emraan is titled “Invisible”, Mahesh Bhatt said: “Emraan is in New York. I spoke to him just an hour ago and he ceartinly didn’t sound even remotely miffed. Our relationship is not built on quicksand.”
About “Invisible”, the filmmaker said: “Emraan is starring in our next mega-project entitled ‘Invisible’, which Vikram Bhatt will direct. It’s an original story written by Shagufta Rafique and Vikram Bhatt.”
Vikram, who is unwell, said: ” ‘Invisible’ would be an entirely new optical and emotional experience for the audience.” (IANS)
