Wow. Who would’ve thought we’d see this day? Team MissMalini caught up with Bollywood serial-kisser Emraan Hashmi at a recent event, and he made a shocking revelation – he wants to stop doing kissing scenes!
He’s said it many times before – Emraan doesn’t like to be tagged as Bollywood’s “serial kisser.” When we asked him why the tag bothers him so much, he said, “It took hard work to become an actor, so I don’t like getting recognition only for my kissing scenes. I’m much more than that. I’ve been thinking lately that I will stop doing kissing scenes.”
As you can imagine, that statement surprised us. So we pressed further and asked him if he’s serious about this.
“Yes, I am serious,” he said, then after a pause added, “I’m not saying that I will never do a kissing scene again. But I am trying to move away from them and I think you will see me in much fewer kissing scenes from now on.”
We asked him if this decision had anything to do with his wife, and he seemed irritated for a second. “No, why? She’s very secure, she knows it comes with the job. But she also supports my decision to stop doing them.”
Well, there you have it. Emraan Hashmi’s putting the kissing scenes on the backseat because he wants to get noticed for much more than that. Which is great, i think – he’s really quite a good actor and it’ll be nice for him to be appreciated for that more than his numerous kissing scenes.
