MUMBAI: After being part of sequels like “Raaz”, “Jannat” and “Murder”, actor Emraan Hashmi seems to have had enough of it and says he will be doing no more of it in the near future.
“I don’t think I will be doing a sequel for a while after this. But these films have been successful from the beginning of my career, and nowadays a fashion of sequels is on, so we thought that it’s great that we should take hit films ahead and make them into a series,” he said in a group interaction.
“Raaz” franchise started in 2002 and its second instalment came in 2009 and it was titled “Raaz – The Mystery Continues”.
Produced by Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt, “Raaz 3” revolves around the downfall in an actress’s life and how she turns to black magic. It has been directed by Vikram Bhatt and also stars Bipasha Basu and Esha Gupta.
What makes Emraan is the commercial appreciation that his films get.
“I am happy and I hope that it stays that way. I always wanted to become a popular actor from the beginning of my career. I always wanted that my films have some sort of commercial aspect and draw mass audience,” he said.
After being part of films like “Shanghai”, the actor is on a lookout for something new.
“The character should be good and different and something which I have not played before. I also see the commercial viability of the film and how different it is… what kind of change it brings,” he added.
