After having worked with Academy Award-winning director Danis Tanovic in the film 'Tigers', Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi, who is geared up for his latest Hindi sci-fi release 'Mr. X', says that in a given budget, Bollywood does more than what Hollywood productions can achieve.

'Mr. X' touches upon the concept of an invisible man, but Emraan, who along with his co-star Amyra Dastur, was recently on the sets of MTV's 'Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan' to promote his film, doesn't want to "end up comparing it with 'Hollow Man'".

"It starts and ends with the invisibility and that's the only common factor between the two films. But as far as budgets go, they [Hollywood] obviously have mega budgets for their films, they have a world audience... We are limited to a Hindi-speaking audience."

"But I think in what we have, and the budget that we're given, we do more than what they can accomplish in that budget," Emraan told IANS in an interview over phone from Mumbai.

'Mr X' releases in theatres on Friday, April 17.
