Emraan Hashmi is the actor who has established himself as a versatile performer in his close to a two-decade-long career in the Bollywood film industry, believes the struggle to survive in showbiz is never-ending.

An actor is probably the most insecure person. Anyone who tells you he’s not insecure is lying. From being relevant to stay alive in a competitive terrain, it’s not easy,” Emraan told PTI in an interview.

“Everyone’s struggling to stay afloat. That’s the nature of the business and that’s what’s fun about it. It’s not easy, but it’s high. Everything has to lead to the next thing. I don’t have a road map. It’s just holding on to the next opportunity and moving on. It’s been 18 years for me in the industry. There are so many new people coming on the block, it’s insane. You’ve got to be on your toes,” Emraan added.

“It’s the best time for me. There are films I’ve reluctantly done in the past to keep the gas burning, for bread and butter. They were far from my ideology, thought the process and my aesthetics. But it’s a great time now with platforms like Netflix coming up, realistic films are coming out,” he added.

The seven-episode series Bard Of Blood is based on Bilal Siddiqi’s bestselling book of the same name. It chronicles the story of an excommunicated RAW agent Kabir Anand - a courageous analyst and a sleeper agent - who takes on a covert mission in Balochistan when four Indian spies are captured; the mission soon turns south and Kabir must face his demons from the past.

The 40-year-old actor said he had read the book and three episodes were already written when he joined the series. "I had to begin by understanding where Kabir Anand comes from. He has angst, he’s fighting his demons, ghosts from the past. Just getting into his head was a difficult process.”

“I’ve never done something like this - the spy zone. The show will go to 190 countries so it’ll involve slightly different kind of performance. Understated, real, raw, authentic and nothing are unbelievable. Even the action is fantastical but not unbelievable,” he added.

Emraan said looking back at his web series, he is extremely happy with the way the Bard Of Blood turned out and hopes for a second season too.

“This show one went on for five months. Unlike films, where your character arch will last probably two hours, here it’s a longer arch, so many artists and tracks. It’s a relief that we have got the work done very well. We have hit bull’s eye with this one. I still want to play Kabir Anand so fingers crossed for season two. That’s a good thing with web series, they can continue,” he added.
