Thursday, July 19, 2007 With the release of Awarapan , Emraan Hashmi has apparently broken out of his typecast playboy, lover image and is now looking out for roles that are somewhat different ranging from horror, to fantasy and the realm of magic.
"I love horror and apparently it is a genre that has not been explored much in India. Maybe it is a risky thing to do, perhaps, that is why, I do not know," says the actor.
The 27-year-old, who began his career with the film Footpath, had become known in the industry for his roles involving kissing scenes, particularly in the movie Murder with co-star Mallika Sherawat.
One of the upcoming movies of this Mumbai-based actor is a thriller --a sequel to the Bhatt movie Raaz --starring Dino Morea and Bipasha Basu.
"People want to see something new and something more," says Hashmi.
