Actor Emraan Hashmi, who will turn 42 on March 24, is often called the ‘serial kisser’ of Bollywood. He is known as one of the most versatile actors of the film industry.
Emraan started his career in Bollywood with Raaz in 2002 and went on to work in a number of hit thrillers such as Murder (2004), Zeher (2005), Aashiq Banaya Aapne (2005), Kalyug (2005), Aksar (2006), and Gangster (2006).
An entire generation grew up listening to the soulful songs from Emraan’s films. They can be used to describe any kind of situation and feeling. In recent times, he has made a comeback of sorts appearing in much-talked about web series The Bard of Blood, film The Body and will soon be seen with Amitabh Bachchan in Chehre.
A loving husband to Parveen Shahani and a doting father to 10-year-old Ayaan, Emraan has been perfectly balancing his personal and professional life.
On the occasion of Emraan Hashmi’s 42nd birthday, here are some best performances by the actor:
A crime romance flick by director Mahesh Bhatt, `Jannat` will always be remembered for Emraan Hashmi`s iconic proposal scene which is undoubtedly every girl`s dream. A second installment to the film was also made with a similar theme.
Inspired by the Hollywood film Unfaithful, Murder revolves around Simran (Mallika Sherawat) who’s unhappy in her marriage with a workaholic man named Sudhir (Ashmit Patel). She goes on to find solace in a steamy affair with Sunny (Emraan Hashmi). However, the guilt gets to her and she leaves him.
The Dirty Picture:
The Dirty Picture featured Emraan Hashmi opposite Vidya Balan in the lead. The film is inspired from the life of popular South actress, Silk Smitha, who was popular for her erotic roles and considered to be a sex symbol. Helmed by Milan Luthria and co-produced by Shobha Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor, The Dirty Picture featured Emraan playing the role of a filmmaker called Abraham, who’s also the narrator of the film.
Political thrillers are a rare genre when it comes to Bollywood films. But even though we might be treated with few films in this genre, they mostly are well crafted and executed. Shanghai was another film in that list.
