Mumbai: Actor Emraan Hashmi has embarked on a new journey as a producer with his home banner Emraan Hashmi Films.
- Emraan Hashmi will produce a film which will be directed by Tony D'Souza
- Tony is an extremely talented filmmaker and a great friend: Emraan
- Tony directed Emraan Hashmi in Azhar
"I'm really excited to turn producer in collaboration with Tony D'Souza who is an extremely talented filmmaker and a great friend," Emraan said in a statement.
Emraan shared that he is looking "forward to presenting audiences with some great content with equal entertainment value."
Tony directed Emraan in Azhar, which chronicled the life of former cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin, who was implicated in a cricket match-fixing scandal in 2000, and banned by BCCI for life. In 2012, however, the Andhra Pradesh High Court lifted the ban, describing it as "unsustainable."
Tony said that he is happy to collaborate with Emraan for the new venture.
"After the success of Azhar, Emraan and I are happy to join hands on this venture. While we cannot disclose much at this juncture, we are finalising the script and the casting," said Tony.
