Actor Emraan Hashmi underwent complete makeover for Dibakar Banerjee's Shanghai and the impact was such that actor went unrecognised.

"Emraan has a huge fan following. Whenever he comes, people call out his name. Surprisingly no one recognised him (during the shoot of Shanghai) because Emraan sported a small paunch and buck tooth too," Banerjee said in a statement.

Shanghai is a political thriller, which also features Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin.

Of Emraan's character, Banerjee said: "Emraan plays a small town guy, a street smart character."

"He is always on the lookout to make money and once in a while does sidey night shoots. If he sees a girl, he will sweet talk her into getting a photo shoot done. Actually, he is a very lovable character with tremendous depth."

The film will release June 8.
