Emraan Hashmi’s next to be a military drama produced by Farhan Akhtar?

It seems that Emraan Hashmi is all set to step into the shoes of a military personnel for his next project. It was reported that the actor has come on board for a military drama titled Ground Zero backed by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, who jointly own the production banner Excel Entertainment.

According to a report in Mid Day, the upcoming film will see Hashmi take on the role of an army officer who is sent off on a ‘critical and dangerous mission to Jammu and Kashmir, to handle a ‘sensitive situation’. The report also states that the upcoming film, which will see Hashmi take on the role of a soldier for the first time in his career, will be helmed by popular Marathi filmmaker Tejas Vijay Deoskar. The makers are yet to make an official announcement regarding the same.

Hashmi was last seen in the supernatural horror film Dybbuk, which had a direct to OTT release on Amazon Prime Video. The film, which is the Hindi remake of the Malayalam movie Ezra, was directed by Jay K and also starred Nikita Dutta, Manav Kaul and Yuri Suri.

The actor’s upcoming releases include Tiger 3 and Selfiee. In Tiger 3, Hashmi will reportedly essay the role of the film’s main antagonist, sharing the screen with Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in the Maneesh Sharma directorial. The third instalment in the Tiger franchise is expected to hit theatres sometime in 2023. Selfiee is the Hindi remake of the Malayalam film Driving Licence, which starred Suraj Venjaramoodu and Prithviraj Sukumaran in lead roles. While Hashmi essays the role of Venjaramoodu’s character in the remake, Akshay Kumar steps into the shoes of Prithviraj’s role. The upcoming film, directed by Raj Mehta, also stars Diana Penty and Nushrratt Bharuccha as the female leads and is scheduled for release on February 24, 2023.
