When Gaurav Arora watched Emraan Hashmi on the big screen in the 2004 film Murder, he had no idea that, 12 years later, he would end up doing a film alongside the Bollywood star. The young actor will soon be seen with Emraan in the next instalment of the Raaz franchise.
Apparently, when Gaurav was shooting for the film in Romania, he would often go out of his way to “observe” Emraan and “learn” from him. “Even on the days that Gaurav didn’t have a scene scheduled, he would drop by the sets to watch Emraan work and observe his method. It was an opportunity that he didn’t want to miss. Whenever possible, Gaurav would also have discussions with Emraan about films in general. It was a high for him to work with Emraan,” says an insider.
When contacted, Gaurav says, “When I had watched Murder, I couldn’t imagine that one day, I will work on a film with Emraan. I have learnt a lot by working with him and by just observing him.”
