Films coming from the house of Bhatts are famous for their shock value. Picking up contemporary themes, Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt have traditionally brought in a shock element in the subject of each of their films. Now Emraan Hashmi only strengthens the belief when he states that his upcoming film with Bhatt brothers, TUM MILE, continues on the same path and brings with it ample shocking moments.

"Yes, there is that shock element in TUM MILE as well, just like every film of Bhatts has. They always bring in something which touches audiences in a big way. In this film, shock value comes by means of floods. It is the anti hero in the film and would take people back to the time when this unfortunate event actually took place", says Emraan Hashmi who has paired up with his JANNAT director Kunal Deshmukh again.

CHECK OUT: Before TUM MILE, I was in a safety net

"JANNAT was entirely Kunal's brain child and I always wanted to work with him again. He has a knack of picking up a relevant topic or issue and bring it alive on screen. In JANNAT he brought forward match fixing while in TUM MILE he has told a story which happened amidst a true incident. Common factor about both the films is that each of them essentially deals with human drama", continues Emraan who has enjoyed back to back success with first JANNAT and then RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES.

Elaborating further on the human drama set in contemporary tales, Emraan says, "Even as JANNAT dealt with match fixing, it was meant to be a driving factor for the problems that take place in the protagonist's life. In TUM MILE, which has floods as the backdrop, we see two people who had actually parted ways some time back. However, now they face a dilemma in their relationship as they are thrown back together on 26th July."

With music by Pritam and lyrics by Sayeed Quadri and Kumaar, TUM MILE has seen a two month promotional campaign for itself en route to its 13th November solo release.
