Most actor-turned-producers announce their maiden productions with massive celebrations, but Emraan Hashmi had a low-key launch of his war drama titled Captain Nawab.
The Azhar actor had, according to reports, been chalking out plans for his first production with filmmaker and friend Tony D’Souza for some time.
The actor revealed the poster on the film on Twitter on Friday morning.
In the poster Emraan is dressed in a uniform which is a mix of the Indian and Pakistani armies with the tagline ‘Two Countries. One Soldier.’
He plays the role of a double agent in the film which is apparently based on a real event during the 1999 Kargil War. This is Emraan’s first role as a soldier though he has easier played the role of a police officer.
Captain Nawab is the first motion picture under Emraan Hashmi Films. It is produced by Emraan’s wife Parveen, with writer Nitin Upadhyay. Directed by Tony D’Souza, the makers are hoping for a 2017 release. – CINEWS
