Actor Emraan Hashmi’s film, Rush, released to a lukewarm response last week. But for the actor, it remains a special film. Emr-aan says the movie is much more satisfying than his other hit films as he managed to fulfill the wish of its original director Shamin Desai, who died earlier this year.
“A journalist sent me an SMS that said ‘only 20 people are sitting in the hall for your film’. So I replied, ‘I feel more victorious in this film (Rush) than even a Rs100 crore film because I fulfilled a dying man’s last wish,” the 33-year-old was quoted as saying. Desai, the original director of Rush, died in January 2011 after announcing his maiden directorial venture in 2010, originally titled Raftaar 24x7.
