A serial on Emraan Hashmi in Pakistan
Emraan Hashmi's massive fan following just got dizzier. Hum TV, a leading Pakistani television channel, recently started a prime time (8pm) show , "Mein Tum Aur Imran Hashmi".
Featuring popular television actors Noor Ul Hassan, Neelum Munir, Rubina Ashraf and Tipu Shah, the serial is about Chanda, who is infatuated with Emraan Hashmi. She watches, hears and hums Hashmi’s hit songs all day from his hits, "Jannat", "Aashiq Banaya Aapne", "Zeher" and "Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai". She even has his picture framed on the wall, much to the dismay of her prospective suitors.
Emraan’s name has been incorrectly spelled, presumably to evade copyright issues. However, on watching the show it is evident that the producers are keen to capitalise on Emraan Hashmi’s popularity.
This is the second time that a television show has been named after an actor, the first being "Kya Meri Shaadi Shah Rukh Se Hogi?” on Geo TV.
With the release of "The Dirty Picture" on December 2, it is believed that the producers of "Mein Tum Aur Imran Hashmi" are even planning to incorporate in the serial, "Ishq Sufiyana", Emraan’s latest hit number with Vidya Balan. "The Dirty Picture" will release theatrically in Pakistan on the same day.
