Emraan Hashmi has been given the tag of a ‘Serial Kisser’ after shot to Bollywood stardom with “Murder” in 2004. Post that he got several films in the same genre before he had broken the tag associated with him.
Reacting to the ‘Serial Kisser’, Emraan said, “I don”t normally get upset with the tag but it is just irritating that though all of us are putting in so much effort to make a film — there is a story, a plot, performances, music and everything — all that people talk about is the ”kissing scene”. You are boiling it down to just one thing. Personally, I have no issue with it but when I look at the bigger picture, it is annoying to see how people are just stuck with a small thing instead of showing interest in the whole film.”
Over the years, Roles in films like “Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai”, “The Dirty Picture”, “Shanghai”, “Azhar”, “Baadshaho” and “Tigers”, and the web series “Bard Of Blood”, have helped him change his image into an actor from just a ”Serial Kisser”. Emraan will soon working with two of the most respected actors in the industry in different films. In the crime drama “Chehre”, he is cast with Amitabh Bachchan. The film is slated to release next year, but before that on December 13, he teams up with Rishi Kapoor in the black comedy thriller “The Body”.
