Emraan Hashmi does a con workshop

Emraan Hashmi, who will be seen playing a con artist in his upcoming film Raja Natwarlal, had done workshops to learn the tricks of a conman. Director Kunal Deshmukh, who’s worked previously with Emraan on Jannat and Jannat 2 informs, “Emraan is a director’s actor. When he learnt about his role, he was quite excited to get into the skin of his character from Raja Natwarlal and was eager to do workshops for the same and learn the tricks of a conman.”

Kunal informs, “Emraan was quite forthcoming when it came to workshops. Cons have a sharp mind and it involves lot of hand movements. The street smart cons may not be educated but work purely on instinct because coning is just a matter of few seconds. A con artist cons like he is getting into a war as his livelihood is depended on that. We wanted that desperation with which they call people play with cards and tried to capture that. Emraan picked it up well and now he’s a pro at it. Emraan has learned the three card shuffle where you show three cards in which one is Queen. I asked him to focus on that because it’s tough.”
