Emraan Hashmi has signed his next project, a new comedy film titled Sab First Class. Balwinder Singh Janjua’s film revolves around the aspirations and dreams of the common man.
The film is a hilarious yet sensitive story about the common man, and how he can go to any length to fulfill his needs. In the bargain, he stands to lose his family, his face in society, and gets caught in a situation he cannot find his way out of,” said Emraan, about the film.
Balwinder’s script is a laugh riot but has its poignant moments as well. It’s unlike anything I’ve done before and was pretty much on board after I heard the first narration,” Emraan shared.
The script narration was done via video call. “As soon as Emraan heard the script, his body language indicated that he was on, although he wanted to sleep on it as any actor should. We did a few sessions on video conferencing as well, which is unlike anything I’ve ever done before. A week or so later Emraan called me with suggestions and his thoughts. He was on, and we were super excited,” Balwinder said.
The film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on his Instagram handle, “ANNOUNCEMENT… #EmraanHashmi to star in #SabFirstClass, a slice of life film… In fact, #Emraan will be trying his hand at comedy for the first time… Directed by Balwinder Singh Janjua… Produced by Deepak Mukut, Shivanshu Pandey, and Abhay Sinha… Nishant Pitti presents.”
