Emraan and Amitabh shared the screen space for the first time in Rumy Jafry’s film. Talking about bringing these two actors together for the film, the filmmaker had earlier told ETimes, “After we finalised Amitabh Bachchan for ‘Chehre’, we started looking for other actors. I was looking for the second lead and Emraan fit right into the character I had envisioned. Even though I had never worked with him before, I had heard a lot about him in the industry. He is truly like Amit ji when it comes to professionalism–dedicated, hardworking and allows nothing to interfere with his work. He is very involved in the work he does. I wanted somebody just like him. When I approached him with ‘Chehre’, he, too, loved his character and was happy to come on board. Emraan’s work has turned out to be even better than I expected.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Amitabh Bachchan has some very interesting projects under his belt which includes, Nagraj Manjule’s ‘Jhund’, ‘Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra’, Ajay Devgn starrer ‘Mayday’, the Hindi remake of Hollywood film, ‘The Intern’ and Nag Ashwin’s untitled next with Deepika Padukone and Prabhas.
Emraan, on the other hand, will next be seen in Tiger 3’ alongside Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in lead roles.
