Emraan Hashmi on his international ﬁlm, WHITE LIES
White Lies happened by accident. Danis Tanovic (Bosnian ﬁlmmaker) loved my work in Anurag Kashyap’s Shanghai. He came home to discuss the movie with me. But before that he had already watched four of my movies. It took him ﬁve years to script it while we shot it in 45 days ﬂat. He’s won an Oscar for No Man’s Land. So I expected him to be a ‘controlling’ director. But he okayed many scenes in the ﬁrst take. So it’s not about the number of days you put in a ﬁlm. It’s about research.
