Actor Emraan Hashmi is reportedly set to play a conman in a masala thriller titled Raja Natwarlal.

The UTV Motion Pictures' movie captures the essence of Emraan's character in the film.

"Ever since I heard this title, I have been after UTV to get it. It etches out my character perfectly and is extremely catchy. Also, because it fits in so well with the space of the film, it will help us in promoting the film very well," Emraan said.

Director Kunal Deshmukh feels that the title takes the film to another level.

"I always wanted to present Emraan in a never seen before avatar. He plays a master street con artist -- the modern day Natwarlal. So the title is just apt," Kunal said.

The film was earlier titled Shaatir, but now it will be called Raja Natwarlal.

It is slated for August 29 release.
