“As far as the bold quotient goes – I am doing my own bold stuff but Naseer is the boldest in the film. I think he has taken all my mantle in the film and he is doing what I use to normally do in films,” said Emraan, who earned the ‘serial kisser’ tag after Anurag Basu’s ‘Murder’.
On scenes with the senior actor, Emraan said, “We had two-three short scenes – there are premiere and party shots but not many. They cross paths as they are in the same industry. Naseer is an actor, Tusshar is a struggling writer, Vidya is an actress. Being part of the same industry, you end up meeting people.”
This Milan Luthria-directed movie has Emraan essay the role of a director. The actor claims that the film would have been incomplete without casting him. “Everyone...everything is dirty in this film. It is the dirtiest film I have done. You cannot make a dirty picture without Emraan Hashmi,” he said. ‘The Dirty Picture’ is inspired by sex icon Vijaylakshmi better known as Silk Smitha. The film shows the highs and lows of an actress-dancing star. “The tone of the film is bold and provocative. But it does not cross the line into vulgarity. Vulgarity is always subjective. The film is bold in terms of language also and few people might feel it is dirty and take an offence. The concept is bold but at the same time entertaining,” said Emraan.
