Emraan Hashmi plays a poor Pakistani in ‘White Lies’

Emraan Hashmi sports a look akin to his <i>Shanghai</i> avatar in the film.

Emraan Hashmi was applauded for his performance as Joginder Parmar in Dibakar Banerjee’s Shanghai in which he played the role of an adult film-maker,hailing from the lower middle class.

The actor will once again reprise his role of a middle-class man in Danis Tanovic’s film,White Lies.

Hashmi sports a look akin to his Shanghai avatar,but this time his fight will be against a corporate giant in the film.

Confirms a source close to the project,“The movie portrays the story of a common man who gets trapped in a corporate web,and it is his fight against this corporate giant that forms the crux of the story.

” Although the story is set in Pakistan,the production team zeroed down on Patiala for shooting the Pakistani portions.

White Lies will feature Emraan Hashmi playing a Pakistani national for the first time.

Apart from the actor,who essays the central lead,the film also stars veteran Supriya Pathak,who will be playing Emraan Hashmi’s mother.

Directed by international film-maker Danis Tanovic,the movie is almost complete,with only a few scenes left to be shot in June.
