Hashmi who has never done an out-and-out dance number so far, will shake a leg for a high-energy street dance number in the film. It wasn't easy to convince him though.
“Emraan hasn’t done many dance songs and Raju has been pushing him at the rehearsals. The audience will see Emraan in a new avatar and the song will surely have everyone tapping their feet,” director Kunal Deshmukh had said in an interview.
“I have never done a full-fledged dance number in any of my films till now. So, when Kunal discussed the song with me, I was quite reluctant about it. However, Kunal and Raju were quite persistent and finally managed to convince me to do the song.” Emraan had said earlier.
Besides Shaatir, Emraan Hashmi
will also be seen in Ekta Kapoor and Karan Johar's Badtameez Dil, Mohit Suri's Hamari Adhuri Kahaani and Vikram Bhatt's Mr. X.
