Emraan Hashmi calls film industry 'fake', says keeping a distance from the glitz and glamour helps him maintain his sanity

After the success of his first music video, ‘Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon’ in 2017, Emraan Hashmi is back to music videos with a love ballad titled, ‘Lut Gaye’. The song has been receiving a lot of love from the audience since its release. Now, in a recent conversation, Emraan, who has been a part of the showbiz for almost two decades spilled the beans on why he maintains a distance from the glitz and glamour, once his work is done. During the conversation, the actor was asked whether he does the same because he finds the industry fake, the actor replied saying, 'This is a fact. There are no two ways about it. That is the truth of our industry. But it is not just because of that. I think a person’s life should be more than just their profession.' The actor also confessed that he has always been grounded because of his friends and family, who are not from the showbiz. He even added that keeping a distance from the industry post his work helps him maintain his sanity. Recently, in an exclusive conversation with ETimes, the actor got candid about his latest video song and other things. When asked is he a director's actor, Emraan said, 'A director has a vision towards his project, be it a film or a song. I like to understand what they expect from me as an actor and then use my skill set to develop the character in the same way. It is always an amalgamation of what the director envisions and what an actor brings to the table.' The actor also talked about being part of several video albums. He said, 'I am grateful that I have been a part of several beautiful songs in my career including ‘Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon’. Good music and a beautiful storyline are what I desire from any song that I am a part of. ‘Lut Gaye’ is also one of them. If I am a part of a song, be it in films or music videos, it will be if I enjoy the song myself, something I hear on repeat.' Meanwhile, on the work front, Emraan has a line-up of films that include ‘Mumbai Saga’, ‘Chehre’, ‘Harami’ and ‘Ezra’.
