Braving the recent string of flops he’s had at the box office, actor Emraan Hashmi said��that he values failures much more than success because they have helped him to grow as an actor. He further added that he takes responsibility of the films that didn’t work, and also that they haven’t affected him negatively.

The Indian Express quote��the 37-year-old actor as having told��PTI,�ʉ��There have been films that have been unsuccessful at the box office but that doesn�۪t deter me. I feel if I go back in time and select the scripts, I would still select those films for reasons that I felt they were good. Sometimes you go wrong. That�۪s what film-making is. You have to take a chance.�۝

“I hold my debacles closer to me than my successful films. It helps me grow. I am clearer after doing these films. I would never disown or shun it. At the same time I will take full responsibility of those films,” he added.

Hashmi opined that an��actor must be able to deal with failure.��”For an actor, you have to be able to take the lows more than the highs. That’s the testing time. When you are in those low phases, how you get back and select films is the thing,”he said.

The actor’s next venture, ‘Raaz Reboot’, also starring��Gaurav Arora and debutante Kirti Kharbanda is all set to release on 16th��September. This movie is the fourth offing from the ‘Raaz’ ��series, previous two films of which, the actor has already been part of.
