New Delhi, April 23 (IANS) Actor Emraan Hashmi underwent complete makeover for Dibakar Banerjee's 'Shanghai' and the impact was such that actor went unrecognised.
'Emraan has a huge fan following. Whenever he comes, people call out his name. Surprisingly no one recognised him (during the shoot of 'Shanghai') because Emraan sported a small paunch and buck tooth too,' Banerjee said in a statement.
'Shanghai' is a political thriller, which also features Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin.
Of Emraan's character, Banerjee said: 'Emraan plays a small town guy, a street smart character.'
'He is always on the lookout to make money and once in a while does sidey night shoots. If he sees a girl, he will sweet talk her into getting a photo shoot done. Actually, he is a very lovable character with tremendous depth.'
The film will release June 8.
