After being pushed ahead by a few months, UNGLI is all set to hit the screens. Karan Johar has confirmed that the film would now release on 23rd May, hence bringing to end speculations around the film's eventual arrival.

The film also finally sees Emraan Hashmi coming on-screen for a Dharma film and Karan, who is known for forging long standing relationships with his actors, has many good things to say about the newest entrant into the fold.

"It is our first film with Emraan and he is one of the best actors that I have worked with. He is very professional, punctual and is an excellent team player. I am grateful to him for the time and affection he has given to UNGLI. One rarely comes across a movie star who is so simple, down to earth and easy in every which way. There was never a problem working with him and I would love to have him on board again," says Karan.

While one waits to see whether it is BADTAMEEZ DIL and any other movie which reunites the producer-actor pair, Karan is happy to be bringing a film like UNGLI which is departure from a quintessential Dharma film.

"The film is a new territory for us and has a very different plot from what Dharma has done in the past. Rensil (D'Silva) has put his heart and soul into the film and presented it in the best way possible," he says.

UNGLI is also much awaited since it would bring back Sanjay Dutt on the big screen. His last notable presence was in Karan Johar's AGNEEPATH and it would be interesting to see how he has been presented in UNGLI now. The film also features Kangna Ranaut, Randeep Hooda and Neha Dhupia in key roles.
