Actor Emraan Hashmi says he felt he had reached saturation point with dark and intense roles in his decade-long film career, and that his forthcoming movie ‘Ghanchakkar’, a comedy entertainer, came as a much-awaited break for him. “I wanted to do a comedy film for a long time. I had done a lot of intense films and dark roles, but I think that was reaching a saturation point,” the 34-year-old said at a promotional event for ‘Ghanchakkar’.
The actor has portrayed intense roles in almost all his films, including ‘Murder’, ‘Zeher’, ‘Kalyug’, ‘Gangster’, ‘Jannat’, ‘Raaz – The Mystery Continues’, ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai’, ‘Jannat 2’ and ‘Shanghai’. So, ‘Ghanchakkar’ seemed like a whiff of fresh air.
“When (‘Ghanchakkar’ director) Rajkumar Gupta narrated the script to me, I felt that the comedy and the sense of humour is something through which I want to project myself,” he added.
