Looks like it was the case of 'try, try until you succeed' for Emraan Hashmi. No wonder that when even after nine retakes, the actor could not manage to get his scene right, he doubled his efforts to finally get it bang-on, on the 10th attempt

Our source says, “In his film opposite Neha Dhupia, there was some patchwork scenes remaining. Emraan was shooting at a crossroad and had to run towards a junction. He had to cover a distance of 250 metres within 60 seconds. Instead of shooting inside a studio, the actor wanted to do it live.”

Apparently every time Emraan gave a take, he would fall short of time. The source adds, “After nine retakes, he got tired and frustrated. And finally, on his 10th attempt, he succeeded!”
