MUMBAI: Emraan Hashmi, who is riding high on the success of “Raaz 3”, is the most underrated actor of the present generation, says Bollywood star Salman Khan.
Emraan’s box office success ratio was recently compared to Salman’s, as he has earned a thumbs up with most of his recent films, including “Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai”, “Murder 2”, “The Dirty Picture”, “Jannat 2”, “Shanghai” and most recently, “Raaz 3”.
“Emraan Hashmi is the most underrated actor and now he should get his due. He has given hit after hit. He is damn good as an actor. I really like him,” Salman said during the music launch of “Ishkq In Paris”.
Salman, who launched the film’s music, was at his wittiest and bullied everyone on stage, including actress-producer Preity Zinta, actor Rhehan Malliek and director Prem Raj.
Salman shot a special song titled “Kudiye di kurti” for the film with Preity, and the actress says she was stunned to see his professionalism.
“I have worked with Salman Khan in tons of films, but when he came on sets, he asked the choreographer to show the steps. Then he said ‘Let’s go for a take’, and he did it perfectly on the first take itself,” she said.
“He is super professional. I thought we will take four to five takes, but we finished in just two takes,” added Preity, who has turned producer with the movie.
“Ishkq In Paris”, releasing Nov 2, is a romantic comedy.
