Emraan Hashmi is a Filmfare Award-nominated Indian actor.

Emraan Hashmi’s six years in Bollywood have earned him the title of a serial kisser owing to a surplus of scorching, lingering, fleeting kisses that his roles have demanded of him, ensuring he is always in demand. There is more to him than that, of course.

Emraan Anwar Hashmi was born on 23 March 1979 to Anwar, a Muslim and Maherahh, a Catholic. Bollywood director Mahesh Bhatt is his uncle and actress turned director Pooja Bhatt is his cousin. He is also related to singer Atif Aslam.

He graduated from Sydenham College in Mumbai. Emraan married his sweetheart Parveen Shahani on 14 December 2006.

Emraan made his debut in Bollywood with Footpath in 2003 but the film didn’t do well. The following year he acted in Anurag Basu’s Murder, a thriller, with Mallika Sherawat. The film became a hit and drew the audience’s eyes on him. The three films released in 2005-Zeher, Aashiq Banaaya Aapne, and Kalyug-got lucky at the box office, while the soundtracks of all his films became popular by their own right. Zeher was based on Hollywood’s Out of Time, while Aashiq Banaaya Aapne was about love and friendship. Kalyug was on the darker side of the spectrum looking at the pornography industry.

In 2006, he had several films hitting the theaters like Jawaani Deewani, Akshar, and The Killer. Gangster did well and was rumoured to be based on the relationship between Monica Bedi and Abu Salem.

The 2007 releases Good Boy Bad Boy, The Train, and Awaarapan didn’t fare well. In 2008, he played Arjun involved in a healthy dose of love and crime in Jannat.

He was the perfect Prithvi, a painter, in the horror flick Raaz – The Mystery Continues (2009). Tum Mile (2009) with Soha Ali Khan received good reviews. It was about the ex-lovers reuniting during the infamous Mumbai floods of 2005.
