Emraan Hashmi is back with the crime thriller Rush that also stars Neha Dhupia and Sagarika Ghatge. The film sees Hashmi play the charismatic and investigative journalist Sam, who plunges into a vortex of violence in a deadly engineered game of cat and mouse .    

Talking about the film Emraan Hashmi says, “I was blown away by Shamin’s script. It's a film I’m very excited about and something I’ve never done before. I found a journalist's life tough. I play an investigative crime journo in a news channel."  

Emraan Hashmi went out of his way to accommodate the film without inconveniencing the team post the tragic loss of the director.

Confirms producer Shailendra Singh, “Emraan has gone out of his way to accommodate the film purely out of sentimental reasons. We all wanted Shamin Desai's dream to come true. Emraan was really shy about accepting the trophy. He felt he was not worthy of it. But we disagree."    

Percept Pictures & Shamin Desai ‘s Rush is scheduled to release in the second half of 2012 .
