Emraan Hashmi reacts on being called ‘serial kisser’ of Bollywood

Emraan Hashmi is well-known for his willingness to kiss actresses for the sake of filming. Emraan Hashmi is known as the ‘serial kisser’. His films ‘Zeher’,’Jannat’, ‘The Dirty Picture’, ‘Tum Mile’ and others were well-received at the box office.

Talking about being tagged as ‘serial killer’, Emraan spoke to Bollywood bubble and said, “For the first 10 years of my career, I was doing these films and I, unfortunately, have done it to myself. This tag was given to me by myself as a joke, and then it blew up, the media started talking about it, and that superseded everything — there could be an article, there could be a film critic review… That overpowered everything, it became a priority. And you had a country that was obsessive about this; sexuality and portraying it on screen. Back then, when I started in 2003, it was this ‘aha’ moment to see a guy who’s kissing all his heroines. That became a talking point.”

He further added, “But as time went on, I realised that. I also realised I was getting sick of it. Because those films were giving me a very ‘been there done that’ feeling. I reached a saturation point, even though those films were doing very well at the box office. I felt that there’s an actor in me who wants more. I am maturing as an actor, but I am forced to choose these scripts because this is what’s working, and in our industry, we want Xerox copies of everything. But I’m not getting any creative fulfilment.”

For the unversed, the cast of Emraan’s next film ‘Chehre’ includes Amitabh Bachchan, Krystle D’Souza, and Rhea Chakraborty.
