Emraan Hashmi burst onto the scene in the early 2000’s with his bold and controversial roles in movies like Murder, Zeher, and Aap Ka Suroor, among others. These movies became iconic because of their ‘kissing scenes’ which were scandalous for the times. Now it is no longer taboo, and a lot of credit for this must go to the brave choices made by Emraan Hashmi at the time.

In truth, Emraan Hashmi was tired of being recognised for his on-screen kisses quite early on in his career.
