Huge turnout for Awarapan press conference

The media conference of Mahesh Bhatt's forthcoming film, Awarapan, saw a packed turnout in a tiny but plush London restaurant on Tuesday 5 June.

Attended by producer Mukesh Bhatt, Emraan Hashmi, and pop sensations from Pakistan, Mustafa Zahid and Annie (who've sung the chartbusting numbers from the film), the event saw a half hour long media question and answer session followed by live acts by the singers.

Emraan who plays the lead in this film commented "I am playing the character of Shivam, a kidnapper whose heart undergoes an extreme transformation."

He continued, "Mohit Suri has crafted an extremely sensitive and heart warming love story with a strong thriller element to it"

About Awarapan being his first major international release, he added, "Our films have worked exceptionally well on DVD. It was a mistake not to release our previous films in cinemas overseas, especially Gangster. We're looking forward to the release of Awarapan on June 29. Its music has already become a rage."

On behalf of his brother Mahesh Bhatt, Mukesh Bhatt said, "The Bhatts have a deep connection with Pakistan. It's such a beautiful country. We're glad to have filmed the climax of Awarapan in Lahore."

He continued, "We hope to see our films releasing simultaneously in cinemas in Pakistan one day."

Mr Bhatt also added, "Vishesh Films is a platform for new talent. We've given a break not just from Pakistan, but also to singers from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Sikkim"

Before Mustafa and Annie proceeded for their live acts both singers were asked about their plans, if any, of foraying into acting.

"Currently, we're concentrating on singing. But if there is an acting offer from the Bhatts, we might just take it up!" they laughed.
