Everyone trying to outdo themselves in kisses onscreen: Emraan
Mumbai: Actor Emraan Hashmi is more than happy to hand over his 'serial kisser' crown to counterparts as well as newcomers and feels that everyone is trying to outdo themselves each time while getting bold on-screen.
"I think someone else should take the crown from me. By all means, give it to another boy or girl. Once you get labelled, you should spread your wings and stretch your talent. It is not easy and one has to do risky things in their career," Emraan said during a media interaction in Mumbai.
Emraan is known for his bold and intimate scenes in films like Murder, Zeher and Aashiq Banaya Aapne among others, which earned him the 'serial kisser' tag. But now in almost every film, every actor has a similar scene.
"I have passed on this (kissing tag) to others. I don't know how far they will push it and shock everyone. When we started, we felt it was a bold move and we were scared about how the film will be accepted," Emraan said.
"Today for youngsters it has become part of script, screenplay. You have to show romance, love and intimacy. I think everyone is trying to outdo themselves in kisses, which I think is ridiculous," he said.
After Student Of The Year and Two States, Emraan's younger cousin Alia Bhatt seems to have laid claim to the title after puckering up with her co-stars Sidharth Malhotraand Arjun Kapoor.
Also, filmmaker Karan Johar has apparently crowned her as the kissing queen of Bollywood. Ask Emraan, if one will get to see him and Alia together in a film, he says, "It will be good if we get to play brother and sister on-screen in the film. Otherwise, I think it will be twisted."
Among the newcomers, Emraan likes Alia and admits he is biased towards her as she is family. "I would be biased to my family, so I think Alia is really good. I rarely watch Hindi films but I saw Student of the Year and I loved her in the film. She is very dedicated towards her work. She is fantastic, and a natural actress on-screen."
Emraan will be seen next in Raja Natwarlal, where he plays the role of a small-time con. Directed by Kunal Deshmukh, the film stars Pakistani actress Humaima Malickand is set to release on August 29.
