Emraan Hashmi steps into the shoes of an army officer for the very first time, for his home production 'Captain Nawab', directed by Tony D'Souza. Apart from thoroughly prepping for the film, the actor also worked on his physique as his character required him to be lean in the film.

Emraan Hashmi's last release, 'Baadshaho' saw him play a character that was slightly bulky and heavier. The actor will now be shedding the kilos since he essays the role of an army officer in the spy thriller and will be performing some high octane action sequences.

When contacted said Emraan, "I am looking forward to begin work on Captian Nawab. I have started workshops from this month, including reading sessions with Malvika Raaj, actor) and Tony (D'Souza, director). I've started working out to get a leaner physique as Captain Nawab requires a leaner look as compared to the one in Baadshaho."
