Emraan Hashmi on His The Body Co-Actor Rishi Kapoor: Love His Brutally Honest Attitude
Emraan Hashmi was all praises of his co=star from the upcoming film and says that all he had heard about the veteran actor is true. Rishi Kapoor to said that it's great to see Emraan turn out to be a versatile actor and do films in other genres and not just romantics.

Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor teams up with Emraan Hashmi for the first time in the upcoming thriller, The Body. Emraan is clearly in awe of the senior star.

"Whatever I had heard about Rishi sir is all true. I love his attitude of being brutally honest. We are living in a world where people around us give fake smiles and try to be nice. I love Rishi sir because he will not say words behind your back. All the good things I've heard of him are true! There is no hypocrisy in him," he said.

Asked to name his favourite Rishi Kapoor film, Emraan said, "I liked 'Karz' and 'Amar Akhbar Anthony' among many others. He is such a natural actor."

Rishi, on his part, had this to say about Emraan, "Initially, he was doing those films in which songs were superhit (referring to 'Murder', 'Gangster'). He was doing romantic films. I thought he would only work in that genre of films, but it is great to see how he shifted gear and became a versatile actor. He is an intelligent actor and very calculative with his action. I like that!"

Rishi, who plays a pivotal role in the upcoming film "The Body", says the film's director Jeethu Joseph wanted to work with him for his earlier film -- the 2013 Malayalam film, "Drishyam" -- but that didn't materialize. Now that they have managed to work together, Joseph is really happy.

"Jeethu told me he wanted to make a Hindi version of 'Drishyam' with me, but I was not a sale-able star to lead the film. It is ok with me, at this age I am a character actor now. I had my glorious days to bring people to the theatre. Then the producer went on to make the (Hindi version) film with Ajay (Devgn) because he is a star. When he decided to make this film ('The Body'), he was determined that he would work with me. In this story, my role suites my age as well as the character. Jeethu is really happy that his dream of working with me came true with this film. He is a good guy!" Rishi told IANS.

Jeethu Joseph's original Drishyam in Malayalam was a big hit, and the film was remade in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Sinhala. The Hindi version, directed by Nishikant Kamat and starring Ajay Devgn, had Tabu as the antagonist.

Along with Rishi, The Body also features Emraan Hashmi, Sobhita Dhulipalla and Vedhika. It is a crime thriller, and the official remake of a Spanish film of the same name.

Produced by Viacom 18, "The Body" releases on December 13.
