Emraan Hashmi has said that he's fascinated by Lahore because the city had beautiful buildings and stunning girls. In a recent interview, the 29-year-old said that the city was not different from New Delhi. He was on a two-day visit to Lahore to launch his latest film, Jannat. The actor said Lahoris had been "very friendly with him".
The 'Zeher' star was accompanied by his co-star in the film, Sonal Chauhan, and producer Mahesh Bhatt. The three film stars stressed the need for more Bollywood-Lollywood joint ventures. They said such efforts would help bring the people of the subcontinent together. Emraan said joint showbiz productions would also help the peace process between the two countries. Jannat has been co-produced by Javed Sheikh.
Emraan and Sonal said they were visiting Lahore for the first time and were surprised to find that the city was 'very different' from what they had expected. "I will never forget the love I got from the people at the Lahore Airport," The Daily Times quoted Emraan, as saying. He said he was visiting Lahore to "explore the city and to know its people".
