Having learnt about Emraan’s international film, the makers of his upcoming Bollywood film have now decided to also release a dubbed version of their movie in English in foreign markets. It has been reported that Emraan will be playing the role of an invisible man in the film, which is written by Mahesh Bhatt and directed by Vikram Bhatt. Apparently, it is a modern take on the Anil Kapoor-starrer Mr India (1984). A source close to Emraan, says, "Post the festival screening of Danis’s film, Emraan’s popularity has increased. The makers of his next Hindi film have now decided to exploit his success and are planning an international release."
