Mumbai, June 15 (IANS) Emraan Hashmi rose to fame not only through his acting but also his lip lock scenes with almost every actress opposite him in his film - the reason why he was tagged as the serial kisser. However, the actor is now irritated with the tag.
'I don't have any problem with sexual content films because of which this name has been coined. But this name is very irritating. If this name is changed, I will do these films throughout my life. I would rather have the name serial killer than serial kisser,' Emraan told reporters here.
The 32-year-old actor has locked lips in films like 'Murder', 'Zeher', 'Aksar', 'Gangster' and 'Crook' among others.
I find myself lucky: Asin
Southern beauty Asin Thottumkal, who stepped into Bollywood three years back and has already worked with bigwigs like Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, says that she finds herself lucky to have got such opportunities.
'I do find myself lucky because in the film industry there are a lot of factors that probably result in success. You need talent and discipline but somewhere you need to have that X factor also. What that X factor is, whether that's luck, or god's grace or the wishes of all the people around you, that is open to interpretation.
'But I think that that one factor that helps is definitely with me otherwise I wouldn't have got all these opportunities to work with these bigwigs of the industry,' Asin told IANS.
The 25-year-old has worked with Aamir in 'Ghajini' and with Salman in two films - 'London Dreams' and 'Ready'. She is now geared up to work opposite Akshay Kumar in 'Houseful 2'.
I have based my character on Laurel: Jaaved Jaaferi
