Emraan as 'Raja Natwarlal'
Emraan Hashmi has turned a smart conman in his next Shaatir, now officially titled Raja Natwarlal, inspired from Amitabh Bachchan’s famous hit Mr. Natwarlal.
The idea to change the name of the film was entirely that of Emraan, a big Amitabh Bachchan fan. No prizes for guessing the actor’s favourite film of the superstar is Mr. Natwarlal.
“I’ve been after the producers to change the title as it is extremely catchy and etches out my character. It fits in well with the film’s space and will help us in promotions,” Emraan Hashmi is quoted as saying.
In the movie, Emraan plays a smart aleck, Raja, who pulls off notorious heists and dupes people of crores of rupees by disguising himself. The movie is a full-on entertainer with regular dose of dance numbers.
In Raja Natwarlal, Emraan romances Pakistani actress Humaima Malick, last seen in the movie Bol.
Director Kunal Deshmukh is also excited for the movie as he always wanted to present Emraan in a never-seen-before avatar.
Raja Natwarlal is produced by UTV Motion Pictures, and will be distributed by Disney India. It releases August 29.
