Emraan to turn producer



Mumbai, June 15 -- Emraan Hashmi is that rare star who prefers to maintain a low profile in spite of having so many hits under his belt. But now, the actor is branching out and including a new profile to his CV - that of a producer.

This doesn't mean that acting will take a back seat. "In the near future, I will be getting into production, or I may co-produce a film. I did get a lot of offers, but right now, I am too tied up with films in which I have an acting part. Production takes a lot (of effort)," he says.

The actor has his kitty full for the year as he has to finish three films - director Kunal Deshmukh's Shatir, followed by Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor's yet-untitled joint production, and Vikram Bhatt's supernatural film, Invisible. Once he is done with these, he will start planning his production ventures. "There is still some time (to get into production). I want to see how these things play out. It needs some planning to start a coproduction unit and I will work on that," says Emraan.
