Emraan Hashmi’s six years in Bollywood have earned him the title of a serial kisser owing to a surplus of scorching, lingering, fleeting kisses that his roles have demanded of him, ensuring he is always in demand. There is more to him than that, of course.
Emraan Anwar Hashmi was born on 23 March 1979 to Anwar, a Muslim and Maherahh, a Catholic. Bollywood director Mahesh Bhatt is his uncle and actress turned director Pooja Bhatt is his cousin. He is also related to singer Atif Aslam. He graduated from Sydenham College in Mumbai.
Emraan married his sweetheart Parveen Shahani on 14 December 2006.
The bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi is upset and angry these days. Recently, Emraan Hashmi applied for buying a house in Nibbana Cooperative Society in Pali Hill but the society refused to give him the house.
The actor wanted to take the house near to his parents’ residence.
The actor claimed that the society is biased against his Muslim identity. The actor has filed a complaint againt the society with the State Minority Commission.Abraham Mathai, the State Minority Commission Vice-Chairman said, "We are sending summons to the society, asking for an explanation."
Emraan Hashmi said, "My parents went to meet society members last week (for the NoC) along with the seller and the broker. Society members, however, told them they were busy and refused to meet them. I found it really offensive."
He added, "The seller, Suvarna, has now informed us that the society will not give us an NOC and it has blocked the sale. We have information that this has been done as they are discriminating against Muslims and will not allow any Muslim in the society."
Mr Chatri - The Secretary of Housing Society said, “But there is no ban on Muslims; we know all Muslims are not terrorists. People from all over the country stay here -- even I have come from a different part of the country -- but one has to know who is coming in."
Emraan Hashmi confirms, "I faced a similar situation in August 2007, when I was looking for a house in the same area; residents and brokers told me I would not be able to get a house because I was a Muslim. But I later managed to get one." Emraan Hashmi on a secret mission
If you were in Mumbai over the weekend and watched Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai in a single screen theatre and had a man sitting next to you or standing in the aisle with a cap and shades, chances are you saw none other than Emraan Hashmi. The actor, in order to gauge the response of his recent release, visited numerous single screen theatres in Mumbai incognito.
Says a friend of Emraan, "To begin with, Emraan's idea was to connect with his fans directly for Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai. Despite going to eleven cities for a promotional tour that lasted for a fortnight, Emraan wasn't allowing any fatigue to set in. This is a major film for him that has him in a dramatic avatar and he wasn't going to let go of the opportunity for his fanbase to increase manifold. Due to this, he decided to go to not one, not two but all single screen cinema halls in Mumbai to meet the audience and know their views about the movie."
As a result, a surprised audience saw Emraan Hashmi amidst them. To begin with, he wanted to directly interact with audience and hence didn't have any qualms about walking in casually and asking them about what they felt after the end credits had rolled.
