Emraan Hashmi’s debut production, Captain Nawab, in which he plays the title role, has a new member on board. Actor, producer and self-proclaimed critic Kamaal R Khan aka KRK is the creative consultant on the project.

Buzz is, KRK is also the co-producer but he refuted the claim saying he will “only contribute creatively not financially”.

Speaking to Mirror, Kamaal says, “I am helping the team on their script. I have been advising about what integral elements are required to be incorporated. Director Tony D’souza is a good friend so whenever he asks for my advice I’m always available to help as a creative consultant. Zee is producing the film.”

Tony is also co-producing Captain Nawab in which Emraan will play an army officer for the first time. In the film’s first poster, half the uniform was that of the Indian army and the other half of Pakistan. When quizzed on this he had said, “That’s the DNA of the film. I know it’ll spark off assumptions but I’ll hold the suspense for now.”

Emraan and Tony last collaboration was the 2016 biopic, Azhar.
