Emraan Hashmi is glad that he has finally done an out and out romantic film in the form of TUM MILE. While he has tasted success before as well, especially so in recent times with back to back successes like RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES and JANNAT, he believes that he was continuing to be in a safety net. However with TUM MILE, he has managed to break out of it.
"There is a certain way in which I am perceived in my films. There is that youthful thing attached to me as a result of which there is a sizeable portion of audiences which is young, vibrant and talks the same language. They have always wanted something similar to come out in each of the characters that I have played", reflects Emraan who has now gone completely romantic for TUM MILE.

"And to think of it, I was initially quite apprehensive about playing the part since I have never done an out and out romantic film", smiles Emraan who is also quite ecstatic with the extraordinary response that the music of the film is generating, "Now that even Mohit (Suri) has seen the film, he questioned me that why didn't I ever do a film like this in first place."
Has he ever thought about this himself?
"Yes, I have, and I know that it is not someone else's fault", says Emraan in an honest tone, "It was entirely my decision as I was happy in my safety net. Once in a while you get a chance to move out of that comfort zone and showcase a different facet of your acting skills. TUM MILE is one such film and I am sure once audiences see me there, they would be in for a surprise too."
