Emraan Hashmi Says Live-in relationships are not taboo anymore
Emraan Hashmi’s long delayed film Rush, which is all set to hit the screens now, explores the trials and tribulations of live-in relationships. In the film, Emraan is an investigative journalist, who lives in with his girlfriend, played by Sagarika Ghatge.
Sagarika, Chak De! India, fame plays Ahana Sharma, who hails from an affluent family and is an artist. The film shows how she has to bear the brunt of Emraan’s demanding profession and how it affects their relationship.
Talking about the same, Emraan says, “Live-in relationships are not taboo anymore and the younger generation has accepted it. As for my character Sam, well, he does try to balance his personal and professional life. But he is too ambitious and achieves too much too soon. He ends up paying a price for it. As a hardcore crime reporter, you could actually end up losing your life.”
On playing Ahana, Sagarika says, “I stay with my parents so playing a girl who is living in with a journalist boyfriend was a completely different experience for me. But I salute all those women whose boyfriends are journalists especially those working as crime reporters in television channels. The profession is highly demanding, keeping one on the edge 24×7 and the girl has to be really strong to cope with the odd hours of work.”
Rush, produced by Percept Pictures, releases on October 24.
