Emraan Hashmi to star in three sequelsBy IANS

MUMBAI - Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi will be starring in sequels of three of his films next year.
The actor will be seen in the second parts of Murder, Jannat and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai — all of which were hits at the box office.
The script of the second part of Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai is getting written out. So right now, there is no confirmation when it will start, but it’s definitely on,” the actor told IANS.
The sequel of Jannat too will start next year. Kunal Deshmukh is still scripting it. We will try and make it bigger and better than the original Jannat. In this one he will deal with another area of match-fixing, he added.
The 31-year-old also threw light on the sequel of Murder, which was one of his earlier films and had helped him gain recognition in the industry after his debut Footpath failed to make a mark.
We are working on the sequel of Murder too. We will start shooting for that in November this year, he revealed.
When asked what made him sign on to so many sequels, the actor explained: Im not doing the sequels just because the first part was a hit.
It’s very important that when a sequel is being made the script is good, it’s important that it’s better than the first part because people expect it from the film. There is more responsibility. Keeping all that in mind, I then said ‘yes’ for the films.
At the moment, the actor, who is known to essay characters with grey shades, will be seen in a similar role in Crook also starring Arjan Bajwa.
The film, which touches upon the subject of racial attacks on Indians in Australia, has been directed by Mohit Suri and will release Friday.
