From the time the first look of RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES came out, what got noticed most apart from the horror genre of the film was Emraan Hashmi's new look. With Kangna's pretty, yet glum looking face (which adds on to the mystery), superimposed into the upper half of the body, Emraan was shown to be standing still in the ruins of what looked like Mukesh Mills reconstructed! What also struck most was the halo behind Emraan's head which seemed to give an indication of the full moon night, hence hinting the arrival of the troubled souls. Looking trendy with spiked hair, trimmed beard and jackets, he also did resemble Gulshan Grover from an angle or two.
''So is this is a compliment or what'', jokes Emraan as he gets ready for the film's release tomorrow.
He goes on to narrate the 'raaz' behind his new look, ''Yes, I know it is a drastic change in the way I look. I have never sported something like this before. It was required because the character demanded something unique in this young man.''
So how did the entire look got designed?
''I was in constant discussions with Mohit Suri and we went through an iterative process for costumes as well as hair. As people made suggestions, we kept on adding things to the look. We really wanted to do something that I had never done before.''
Well, with a new hairstyle, a French beard and eyes staring right at you, Emraan indeed looks all intense with the sole aim of going any distance to solve the 'mystery' which continues from the days of 'Raaz'!''
