If the latest rumours are to be believed then Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi has expressed his wish to work with the Pakistani beauty Humaima Malik in a movie which is tentatively titled Shaatir.
Rumours have been doing the rounds that suggest Kunal Deshmukh is looking to sign Humaima for his next venture. According to IANS, ““Humaima has been approached, but nothing is official right now. A screen test has been conducted. UTV and Kunal are looking for a fresh face for Emraan and if things fall into place, in all probability she [Humaima] will step into the project.”
The model-turned actress is done with an extensive screen test. Humaima has impressed everyone especially Kunal Dekhmukh.
“The producers as well as the director won’t be ready to talk about casting her yet, since the nitty-gritty of the contract is being worked out. And they don’t want to jump the gun before signing her formally, since she is from Pakistan and no one knows what kind of issues might crop up,” the insider adds.
Deshmukh says, “It’s too early to talk about it. I can only reveal to you that Humaima has indeed (screen) tested with us.”
Another source says, “The film will bring forth a fresh pairing. Since there are hardly any actresses left, who have available dates, Kunal decided to cast a fresh face. He had seen Humaima work in Bol and was very impressed.”
This role has been reportedly offered to Priyanka Chopra and Jacqueline Fernandez before but they were too busy with their schedule to accept this.
