MURDER 2 is a huge hit and Emraan Hashmi hasn't forgotten the promise that he made to Mahesh Bhatt years ago when he had just started in Bollywood. As per the pact between the two, Emraan is required to gift his mentor whatever he wants once his films turns out to be a success. The trend is following with Mahesh Bhatt ready to catch hold of Emraan and list down his demands.
EMRAAN HASHMI and MAHESH BHATT
"Yes, it is like a gurudakshina," Emraan breaks into a laugh here, "Mahesh saab has become really techno savvy of late and has been demanding all these cool cell phones and other gadgets whenever a film of mine becomes a hit. I have already gifted him some really cool exclusive cell phones. Then recently I gave him an I Pad. I am waiting for him to tell me what he wants now that MURDER 2 has become a big hit. I dread to think though that what he would demand eventually."
Meanwhile there would be lot more gifts that seem to be in the pipeline for Mahesh Bhatt. After all Emraan is coming back with another Bhatt- Vikram for RAAZ 3 who had launched him with FOOTPATH eight years ago. Also there is another film with Kunal Deshmukh who is responsible for giving him his first big hit in the form of JANNAT and with INFORMER they would certainly be looking forward to washing away the debacle of flood drama TUM MILE.
"Certainly, the intent is to better the work from the past," Emraan nods in agreement, "These are the kind of films that are cutting across genres and would speak for themselves. And then there are a couple of more films from outside banners that I am considering. You will hear a lot more in coming days."
