Emraan Hashmi is having his three upcoming projects this year – Captain Nawab, Cheat India, and Jeetu Joseph’s horror thriller. However, his Captain Nawab is facing some issues at this time. The film is about a double spy, that is of India and Pakistan, gets in trouble when both sides come to know of his betrayal. The movie is directed by Tony D’Souza and is inspired by true events. Emraan will essay an army man for the very first time.

Emraan started the shooting for the spy thriller film but now the shoot has been temporarily stopped because of the roadblock from Indian Military. Confirming the news, Tony says, “Yes, we have sent the script to the Ministry of Defence. We are awaiting their clearance to proceed with the shoot.” He quickly clarifies, “Anyone who makes a film on the army doesn’t do it with an intention to hurt anyone’s sentiment. We have a lot of respect for the Indian Armed Forces.”

When asked about the reason, the source reveals, “Director Tony D’Souza and the entire team is awaiting a clearance from the Indian military to resume the shoot. Emraan plays a man in uniform and it highlights the sensitive Indo-Pakistan relationship, the armed forces are wary of how it will be shot. They have raised a few questions and unless a clearance is received, work on the film cannot resume.”

Tony adds that the clearance is expected soon. “We had finished our first schedule, but we will shoot portions of the film featuring the Indian Army now. So, we needed the Ministry to give us a No Objection Certificate. It should come either by the end of this month or in the first week of March. Then, we would be good to go,” he says.

This is the first time when Emraan Hashmi will be producing a movie.
