Emraan Hashmi plays a poor Pakistani in 'White Lies'
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.
