Emraan Hashmi wants to go all out to promote his upcoming film, Raja Natwarlal۪, and has allotted 10 days to do the same. However, his uncle and mentor, Mahesh Bhatt, seems to be disappointed with this act by Hashmi as Bhatt wanted to use those 10 days from Hashmi۪s diary to wrap up shooting for the Bhatt۪s production, Mr X۪.
Bhatt said to Mumbai Mirror, He (Emraan) did inform me about this change in plans but he still caught me off-guard. Without taking away from his efforts, I have to say that I am the architect of Brand Emraan. We are his parent company and deserve his loyalty more than anyone else.
Hashmi, however, believes that his mentor should be happy with his decision. He said, Bhatt saab has been and always will be my mentor. But he forgets that he was the one who told me that in the end only success matters, be it through fair or foul means. I am going all out for Raja Natwarlal۪ as it is a good film and I want it to succeed. Bhatt saab should be happy because I am following his teachings.
UTV Motion Pictures and Kunal Deshmukh۪s Raja Natwarlal۪ is slated to release on 29th August. The film will see Hashmi opposite Pakistani actress Humaima Mallick.
