The first trailer for Emraan Hashmi’s first Indo-American film Harami is out and it traces a human story amid the crime world set in Mumbai’s underbelly. Written and directed by Shyam Madiraju, the film marks Emraan’s return to international cinema six years after his collaboration with the Oscar-winning director Danis Stanovich for Tigers (2014).

The two and half minute video takes us to Mumbai slums and gives a close look into the syndicate of goons using young children as pickpockets. The trailer captures the fast paced, visually striking street saga of juvenile crime and broken destinies, as it plays out against the vibrant and chaotic backdrop of a city that never stops. The film features newcomers Rizwan Shaikh (16-year-old) as ‘Pachpan’, the leader of a pack of pickpockets and Dhanashree Patil playing Uma, his love interest.

Speaking about the film, Emraan had earlier said in a statement, “It was Shyam’s script that really attracted me to his project. And his obsession with details, it was very contagious. Kudos to Shyam and his Harami team for making it into the prestigious main competition section of the festival. It was a true passion project for all involved and I am looking forward to the day when we will be able to share the film with the Indian audience.” Emraan Hashmi Films has co-produced the movie with US-based Germ Collective and other US producing partners. Brent Maddock and Pravesh Singh Rajput have co-produced the Film, with Paul Feig, Sunny Khanna and Navin Shetty on-board as Executive producers.
