Comparisons with Emraan unfair: Randeep Hooda
'Murder 3' actor on belonging to a different school of acting than the original 'Murder' hero
When Randeep Hooda replaced Emraan Hashmi to sign the third installment of the Murder franchisee, many eyebrows were raised. But Randeep feels that comparisons with the other actor are totally uncalled for.
He says, “When I signed the film I was not even aware it was going to be the third film. I just jumped at the opportunity as soon as I came to know about it. Emraan and I belong to different schools of acting so I don’t feel people should compare us. It is unfair and I just want to say that I am not going to be on the back-foot.”
Emraan has often been tagged as the hero for the masses. Whether he will take on the mantle from Emraan, Randeep shoots back, “I think I have already become a hero for the masses. The Bhatts have given me that status with back-to-back hits. I have done some intellectual films as well as commercially successful films. So that says it all.”
