Emraan Hashmi is one of the actors in Bollywood who has a massive fan base. Although the actor has not been much in the limelight, he is loved by his fans and followers. Emraan marked his acting debut with the film Footpath but went on to earn recognition after he featured in Murder opposite Mallika Sherawat. He delivered some blockbuster movies post that. In an exclusive chat with us, Emraan spoke about the audience’s reception towards his movies. He spoke about breaking away from stereotypes and opened up on how he deals with the low phase.

The Dybbuk actor told Bollywood Bubble, “You know, for me, I don’t dwell in self-pity. And when the chips are down, I just keep moving ahead. Of course, it’s disheartening. Obviously, you go through a little bit of anxiety through that phase. But, you know, it always comes around to how passionate you are about the thing you are doing. And when your passion kind of supersedes the fear of failure then there’s no problem.

Emraan Hashmi further added, “Because, the passion is the driving Force. That’s what’s taking you ahead.” He mentioned how he is passionate about working in films. The actor continued, “So my passion for films is always superseded.

Talking more about his low phase, Emraan said, “A low phase or when the chips are down, I knew that there was a reason for that. I stepped down for something when I was in my prime, to try and experiment with something else.”

Explaining himself further, Hashmi shared how he knew that he would face a tough phase in his career. Sharing the reason behind it, he said, “Because I was not giving the audience something they wanted to see me in. Because you knew that would be so myopic because that would last a couple of years after that. After that I have to give them something unique. So why not now. I was well on my way to kind of do that and know that okay, films might not clock numbers as they did earlier, for things that I am successful at. But, it’s important to do that.”

Emraan Hashmi is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming film titled Dybbuk. The film is scheduled to release on October 29, this year. Currently, Emraan is promoting his upcoming film in full swing. He has other projects in his kitty too. And the actor was last seen in the film Chehre opposite Amitabh Bachchan.
