Though he had three releases to his name (GOOD BOY BAD BOY, THE TRAIN, AWARAPAN), only AWARAPAN worked in his favor as it brought him immense critical acclaim. Close to a year after his last release, Emraan gets ready with his latest film JANNAT, yet again with Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt.
Says Emraan, "I play the character of a bookie in the film who rises from being a street side gambler to someone high up there in the international circuit. It is an author backed role."
He goes on to add, "Unlike the serious character I played in my critically appreciated AWARAPAN, in JANNAT I play a man of my age. I have whacky and mischievous shades, something which goes with the kind of image I have developed ever since AASHIQ BANAYA AAPNE and AKSAR hit the screens."
