Exclusive! Shriya Saran Recollects Her Awarapan Days, "I Thought Emraan Hashmi Would Have A Huge Ego"

Emraan Shriya 2

Emraan Hashmi and Shriya Saran were seen together on the big screens in 2007 release Awarapan. The film wasn't a big hit at the box office, but the music was loved by everyone and later it got a cult status. Now, after 17 years, we will get to watch Emraan and Shriya together in a series titled Showtime. Filmibeat recently interacted with the team of the series, and we told Emraan and Shriya that the show is going to be a nostalgia for the 90s kids.

When we asked Shriya about how was her experience of teaming up with Emraan again after 17 years, the actress said, "I have beautiful memories of Awarapan. I literally remember the first time I met everybody. I thought Emraan would have a huge ego as he is a huge star, but he was just really simple-sweet guy. It was really lovely working with him, I enjoyed it and then we kind of lost touch and didn't work again. But, it so happened that my god-daughter is best friends with his son. So, I used to hangout a lot with his son and his wife."

Emraan added, "My son actually calls her Shriya maasi."

Shriya went on to reveal, "Yes, he calls me maasi. So, we are at a premiere and Emraan is acting like an introvert which actually he is, and his son is like running around and he calls me, 'Shriya maasi' and he runs towards me, and he (Emraan) has no idea. He was like 'maasi, what happened to you?'. And then, again working with him on this show was lovely. We have some beautiful scenes and it was just nice to see that he hasn't changed as a person, and he is the same.He doesn't carry the 'I am a star' baggage with him."
