I almost feel like a vampire: Emraan Hashmi

After working non-stop nightshifts for the past three months, Emraan cringed at the first sight of daylight

The recent Twilight installment might have pleased its myriad fans but Emraan Hashmi certainly wasn’t one of them. But the actor can relate to some of the characters in the film in a better way now. Turns out the actor had been working non-stop for the past 90 days on nocturnal shifts that put his normal life off balance.

His recent professional high seems to be coming with its fair share of troubles not to mention, harm to the natural body clock! And as if working on three films at the same time wasn’t tiring enough, his schedule required him to shoot during nighttime as well.

One of these three projects in the making is Rajkumar Gupta’s upcoming comedy for which he’s teaming up with Vidya Balan for the second time. The other two are Rensil D’Silva’s forthcoming ensemble and Vishal Bhardwaj’s next.

And thanks to this line-up, Emraan felt rather uncomfortable when he got a day off recently after quite a long time. “He hadn’t seen daylight at all for the past 80-90 days. As a result, after finding a free day to spend, facing the sunlight was an awful experience. The brightness was too much for him to handle. He ended up staying indoors throughout the day,” says a source close to the star.

Emraan however plays down the incident and says it’s part and parcel of his professional life. “I almost feel like a vampire shooting non-stop in the night over two-and-half months now but I’m determined to complete the shoots within their schedule,” he sums up. Looks like Bollywood has its own version of Edward Cullen!
