Known best for his onscreen kissing talents, actor Emraan Hashmi seems to be paying quite a bit for that image: His wife Parveen, the serial kisser has now confessed, still sulks about his kisses and calms down only after he gifts a bag for every film he kisses in.
Speaking at the launch of his book, The Kiss Of Life, Emraan discussed his wife’s reaction to his kisses and said, “She still sulks. She doesn’t hit me as hard now, earlier it used to be with a bag, now it’s just with the hand. So she has kind of come down over the years.”
Does Emraan calm her down by buying her expensive jewellery? “Always buy her bags, for every kiss, for every film. She has got a cupboard full of bags, there’s one cupboard dedicated to bags,” he said.
Considering the numerous kisses he shared with Nargis Fakhri in his last release Azhar, did he have to actually buy that many bags? Emraan said, “As many times, but bag is only once. We’ve had a barter deal; that way I told her that I’ll be broke. “Don’t take money for everything, take money for the film and buy a bag from it.”
Emraan started his career with numerous kissing scenes in almost all of his films such as Murder, Zeher, Aksar, Aashiq Banaya Apne and Gangster among others and earned the title of “serial kisser”. When films such as Shanghai, where he didn’t kiss, flopped, it was reported that he found kisses ‘lucky’ for his films. When asked about it, he said, “Thankfully some films where I have not kissed have also flopped and some where I’ve kissed have also flopped.”
Upon being asked to write a book a love guru, he said, “I got rejected like three times, so that’s the love guru for you. I think I’d make a disastrous book... I’ll think about it, I’ll actually give it a thought.”
Emraan will next be seen in the film Raaz Reboot.
