Films coming from Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt are known for their shock value. Now Emraan Hashmi says his upcoming film with the Bhatt brothers, Tum Mile, will carry forward the tradition.

"There is that shock element in Tum Mile as well, just like every film of the Bhatts has. They always bring in something which touches audiences in a big way," Emraan said.

"In this film, shock value comes by means of floods. It is the anti hero in the film and would take people back to the time when this unfortunate event actually took place," added the actor.

The actor, who has paired up with his Jannat director Kunal Deshmukh again in this film, says he was very keen to do one more film with the young director.

" Jannat was entirely Kunal's brain child and I always wanted to work with him again. He has a knack of picking up a relevant topic or issue and bring it alive on screen.

"In Jannat he brought forward match-fixing while in Tum Mile he has told a story based on a true incident. The common factor about both the films is that each essentially deals with human drama," said Emraan.

"In Tum Mile, which has floods as the backdrop, we see two people who had parted ways some time back. However, now they face a dilemma in their relationship as they are thrown back together on 26th July."

Emraan emphasises that technically Tum Mile has been the most difficult film he has been a part of.

"Tum Mile has been a very tiring experience, both physically and mentally. It was a difficult film to be made and hats off to Kunal (Deshmukh) for making it happen."

"The entire team has done its best to recreate the flood situation. During shooting, everyone from cast and crew used to stand in waist deep water for hours at a stretch to give that perfect shot.

Tum Mile is scheduled for a November 13 release.
