Emraan gets his first ‘U’ certified film, thanks kids

Actor Emraan Hashmi, known for his serial kisser image, has revealed that he has signed his first ‘U’ certified film and gives credits to children for doing it.

“There is an untitled, Universal film, it would be my first ‘U’ certified film,” said Emraan.

“Actually, I was shooting in Jaipur three-four years back and some children told me that we watch your songs, but our parents don’t allow us to see your films. So I said, one day when I get a good script, I’ll definitely make a film for you all.”

“Fortunately, I have got such a script. It is still in the pre-production stage and it has not been announced yet, but it is for universal audience,” he added.

The 33-year-old was speaking Sunday at a promotional event for his upcoming film “Jannat 2”.

Emraan, who was last seen in “The Dirty Picture,” says that he values audience opinion more than the critics.

“There is an adulation that you get from audience. I never really give too much importance to critics or any awards. So for me, audience’s acceptance is my yardstick for success,” said the actor.

Directed by Kunal Deshmukh, “Jannat 2” is set for a May 4 release. It also marks the debut of model Esha Gupta in Bollywood. Emraan said even after nine years in filmdom, Fridays make him jittery.

“For me as an actor, as a performer, it’s a high, a positive sign for me that there is an adrenaline rush when the film releases Friday. I still wonder how the film is going to work, how will it be appreciated. This is fun, but scary too,” he said.
