Expressing why Emraan Hashmi is the perfect choice for the spy character, producer of the series, superstar Shah Rukh Khan said “A little unassuming not in your face tough macho. Works with his mind, plus there is obviously a physical ability of an action hero and I think that mix perfectly fits Emraan. I like his zone of being extremely underplayed and easy when he does it. He looks like an intelligent actor.”
Lead actor Emraan Hashmi, who has established himself as versatile performer in the industry through his roles in films like Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, The Dirty Picture, Murder among others is set to woo his audience by playing with an all-new avatar of Kabir Anand a spy in Bard of Blood. Excited about the new avatar Emraan says. “He had been expelled from an Intelligence agency that he used to work for and he was starting life afresh in Mumbai as a Shakespeare teacher. He is battling with the ghost from his past. I have never played a role of a spy, nothing has ever come close to the kind of space that we are exploring in The Bard of Blood.”
Ribhu Dasgupta, the director of the series commended Emraan Hashmi’s efforts for shooting in extreme circumstances and places like Leh Ladak for hours without any complaints.
