While every actor worth his salt is milking the social network for all its worth, there are some who refuse to jump onto the bandwagon. Like Emraan Hashmi. The actor says, with candid honesty, that a part of it has to do with laziness. That said he admits that he is anyway uncomfortable with the limelight. He continues to believe that he is an outsider in Bollywood, someone who doesn’t watch Hindi films and goes so far as to call himself “a freak”!
The non-conformist within him believes it’s not necessary for him to be like the herd. And so he continues to do the things he likes to, completely disinterested in keeping tabs on who’s doing what in B-town. “It doesn’t make a difference because I don’t want to do what the other actor does. My space is parallel mainstream cinema,” he spells out.
The actor admits that while he does check box-office numbers he doesn’t watch the films. “I haven’t even watched most films I’ve worked in!” he grins. The actor reveals that he has become more involved in the marketing of his films – more involved than he was three years ago, at any rate. But sharing details of his day and plugging his films endlessly on social media – that’s something that will take a while when it comes to Emraan Hashmi!
