Emraan Hashmi about his struggle: Even Bhatt camp told me if my films don’t generate money they can’t work with me

Baadshaho: Emraan Hashmi flaunts funky sleeveless jacket and accessories but it doesn't belong to him!

The Bhatt camp, officially called as Vishesh Films and owned by brothers Mukesh Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt is one of the most successful film production houses in Bollywood. While the company has introduced a number new faces in Hindi film industry, their association with Emraan Hashmi has always seemed to be the strongest one. Emraan made his debut with Footpath produced Vishesh Films and went on to do a number successful films with the company including Murder, Zeher, Kalyug, Gangster, Woh Lamhe, Murder 2 and many others.

Looking at the long association of the two, one may think it made things for Emraan easier in his initial days. While the Bhatt camp provided an entry to Emraan, the initial phase of struggle was not as easy as it sounds. There was always a fear that failure of the films will affect their equation.

The actor has even recently revealed that the Bhatt camp clearly told him if his films fail at the box office they won’t be able to work with him. “Even with the Bhatts it was like ‘if you are not going to generate money when these films are going to be out on box office then even we can’t go ahead and make films with you.’ They were very clear about it. I am thankful to them for making me pull up my socks and work towards it,” he said.

He also admitted that it is same for the star kids as well. Their destiny also depends on that Friday box office numbers. “It is true for even star sons. It is really frightening that a box office Friday dictates if it is going to work or not. These kids grow up in an environment where they always wanted to become actor. Then one Friday comes along and that’s it, this is the end of it. You might be talented but there are other dynamics that come into play,” he said.

On the work front, Emraan Hashmi was last seen Soumik Sen’s crime drama Why Cheat India. He is currently promoting his next film The Body which is coming on 13 December. He is also working with Amitabh Bachchan in Rumi Jafferey’s Chehre and will also be seen in Sanjay Gupta’s Mumbai Saga.
