He has romanced several actresses on screen, and the “serial kisser” tag doesn’t seem to leave him. But Emraan Hashmi, who now shares screen space with three heroines in Ek Thi Daayan, says he is at peace with his personal life because his wife is not insecure about their relationship.
“My wife never gets insecure. After 30 films, every film has something or the other. She has her head over her shoulders, otherwise she would have left me a long time ago. She has a very mature way of looking at things,” says the actor.
Emraan married Parveen Shahani in 2006. They have a son named Ayaan.
In his decade-long career, Hashmi has locked lips in films such as Murder, Zeher, Aksar, Gangster - A Love Story, Crook, The Dirty Picture and Raaz 3.
But he thinks intimacy on screen is overrated. “I guess that (‘serial kisser’) is just a saleable term for films and the media. For me, it has been important to play different characters and films. People focussed on the intimacy on screen, which I found very funny. I continued to do bold characters and everyone is doing it now; so now people can digest it.”
