Emraan Hashmi to play a conman in ‘Raja Natwarlal’

Serial kisser Emraan Hashmi is trying different roles in movies now and he has gone quite a level higher than his lover boy image and experimenting different roles. In UTV Motion Pictures next titled, ‘Raja Natwarlal’, Emraan Hashmi will play a street-smart conman.

"Ever since I heard this title, I have been after UTV to get it. It etches out my character perfectly and is extremely catchy. Also, because it fits in so well with the space of the film, it will help us in promoting the film very well," Emraan said.

Director Kunal Deshmukh feels that the title will work wonder for the film and it will take it to the next level. "I always wanted to present Emraan in a never seen before avatar. He plays a master 'street con artist' - the modern day Natwarlal. So the title is just apt," Kunal said.

The film was earlier titled, ‘Shaati’, but later changed to ‘Raja Natwarlal’.

"Emraan, Kunal and our team were thrilled about this title from the moment we hit upon it, as it sums up his character perfectly. Emraan and director Kunal Deshmukh together have entertained audiences with back-to-back hits earlier and we look forward to Raja Natwarlal to entertain our audiences," Disney India's VP and head of marketing and distribution-studio, Amrita Pandey said.

Emraan Hashmi is currently shooting Bhatt’s film, ‘Mr.X’ and has movies like ‘Ungli’, ‘Badtameez’ in the pipeline.
