Emraan Hashmi is going to be a part of the upcoming movie, ‘Father’s Day‘ and he will enact the role of Suryakant Bhande Patil. He is a detective who has solved 120 child kidnapping cases for free. The film is said to be an emotional story between a father and son inspired by Gujarati author Praful Shah’s book Drishyam Adrishyam.
Emraan on Monday took to Twitter to announce about the project, which will be co-produced by him.
“Excited to announce my film ‘Father’s Day’ based on the life of Suryakant Bhande Patil, India’s top detective who has solved 120 child kidnapping cases for free. Directed by Shantanu Baagchi, written by Ritesh Shah. Produced by Emraan Hashmi Films and Mataram Films,” he wrote.
The actor also added, “Suryakantji’s story is heartbreaking but very inspiring. It’s rare to find a person who has dedicated his whole life to helping find the kidnapped children of others, that too for free. I am proud to be playing him in the film.”
The Pune-based civil engineer has been collaborating closely with cops, not just in Pune but also in Mumbai, to trace missing children and has even set up a website dedicated to them.
The 39-year-old actor is currently busy with Cheat India, based on education scams in India. It will release on January 25, 2019.
