Mumbai -- Director Kunal Deshmukh, who has worked with Emraan Hashmi in Tum Mile, Jannat and Jannat 2, feels the actors career is a lot like Saif Ali Khans. The filmmaker thinks people have suddenly woken up to Emraans talent something that happened with Saif after Dil Chahta Hai. "Emraan's career is a lot like Saif Ali Khan's. Saif was the same person... but suddenly after Dil Chahta Hai, he turned out to be a cool dude. Something like that has happened with Emraan. He is doing really well," Deshmukh told IANS. According to the director, Emraan has evolved as an actor ever since he made his debut with 2003 film Footpath."Emraan has not changed, but people have woken up. He is challenging himself. He is bringing a lot to the table. He is ironing on all levels than just in one. Now suddenly it's cool to watch Emraan Hashmi. People are waking up slowly," added Deshmukh.
