The serial-kisser of Bollywood, actor Emraan Hashmi has already started shooting for the sequel of one of his most sensual hits Murder (2004) and hints that this instalment would be a more "edgy thriller" in which he plays the role of a serial killer.
"We have started shooting.
Our main schedule will be in Goa. There is quite a bit of work left. I think we will be looking forward to release it this year," Emraan told IANS.
"We are taking it away from the space people are actually thinking it's in. It taps the simple angle of lust and all that was there in the first part. But it doesn't dwell primarily on the area of lust. It takes into more edgy thrill space," he said.
"Thrill was there in Murder but people associated only with the sensuality, probably that kind of boldness. This is bold in a very different way. All the presumptions what media and people have would be probably put to rest when they see the film. We never had films with serial killers. It deals with those different areas. That's what makes it new and unique," Emraan added.
Sultry Mallika Sherawat has been replaced by actress Jacqueline Fernandes as the female lead in Murder 2.
Emraan is next to flaunt his six-pack abs after actor Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Shahid Kapoor, but the actor is quite nonchalant about it.
"I don't understand that six-pack band thing anyways. I did it because my director said that I need to look tough for a role. I am not obsessed with the pack thing," he said.
