The Murder actor was quoted saying, “I’m a fan and as a child, after returning from school, I would not sit down to eat unless Sholay (1975) or Mr Natwarlal (1979) played. That’s the kind of connect I have with his films since I was seven or eight.” He added that it’s inspiring to see how the senior actor keeps reinventing himself with every role he takes up. “So, working with Mr Bachchan in a film was a surreal experience. He is constantly reinventing himself. To have someone with his kind of experience on the set and observing him, helped me evolve as an actor too,” said Emraan.

Apart from Chehre, the actor has got Sanjay Gupta’s Mumbai Saga up his sleeves. Emraan plays the role of a cop in the gangster drama and before the film industry experienced a shutdown due to coronavirus, the actor had almost finished shooting his parts in the film. He said he is yet to now shoot one scene with John and then it’s a wrap up for him. This is for the first time that the audience will see Emraan wearing a uniform. Before this, he has played the role of an undercover cop in Ungli but he didn’t wear a uniform in the film. Mumbai Saga is scheduled to hit the screens on June 19.
