Kangna Ranaut played a fashion model in Fashion and then Raaz 2. The role carryover race continues with Emraan Hashmi who plays a painter in Raaz 2.
He's now playing the same role in Kunal (Jannat) Deshmukh's Tum Mile. "But with a difference. You see, this time I actually paint. In Raaz, I wasn't really able to do much of that. All the paintings were done beforehand and I didn't get a chance to paint on screen apart from a few strokes."
In Tum Mile, Emraan's newly-discovered painting skills will go a lot further. "I'm shown to be a far more intricate painter, doing not just brush painting but also charcoal etc. Here I can't fake it. I'm using all the skills that I learnt as a painter in Raaz for Tum Mile."
Emraan seriously intends to pursue his painting. "And my character in Tum Mile is helping me do that. It's my first intense love story."
The film is based on the deluge in Mumbai on July 26, 2005. All the scenes depicting the couple coming together during the deluge were shot in one go at a studio set. Emraan describes it as his first intense love story. "It's also my first film with Soha Ali Khan. Do I kiss her? Let that be a secret. I consciously moved away from the serial kisser's image in Raaz 2. I don't want to be known for something so frivolous. I want to move on."
