“Obsession with numbers gets the thrill out of working in films. Everything can’t be equated only with numbers. Sometimes, it is a small film and you crush the spirit of the film because it may not do the kind of numbers,” he said.

The actor’s recent films, including Hamari Adhuri Kahani, Mr X and Raja Natwarlal, have not done well at the box office. When asked if the box office pressure dictates an actor’s choice of films, Emraan said, “In some films it does, in some films you like to take a risk. But I think the more you have news articles coming out, the media talking about these terms, then it also gets the actors jittery. They are afraid of trying something new.”
