Recalling about the incident in a recent interview, Emraan said he had to bear the brunt of such a statement. 

During an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Emraan was asked if his character in his upcoming Showtime is as blunt and bold as he was in the episode of Koffee With Karan where he referred to Aishwarya as plastic. 

To this, the Murder 2 actor said that the character he is playing in Showtime is fictional and doesn't resemble anyone. Further, talking about his controversial statement on Aishwarya, Emraan said that he actually had to bear the consequences of calling 'spade' a spade. 

Emraan said that he clearly remembers when he made the controversial statement and Karan actually had to cut the short as he was too surprised by his answer. Further, he said that Karan looked around and asked if he could actually keep the answer, to which some people from the show's team said a big yes. 

In one of his earlier interviews, Emraan clarified that he immensely respects Aishwarya. He made such a statement as it was a rapid-fire round. He also said that his intention was not to hurt Aishwarya, but people took the statement out of context. 

On the work front, Emraan was last seen in Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif-starrer Tiger 3. Emraan's stellar performance as the antagonist garnered all the attention of the audience. On the other hand, while rumours were abuzz that he would be seen as a negative character in Ranveer Singh and Kiara Advani-starrer Don 3, Emraan refuted the speculations. He will be next seen in Sara Ali Khan-starrer Ae Watan Mere Watan apart from his next stint Showtime, which speaks about ten dirty and dark secrets of Bollywood.
