Emraan Hashmi (born as Emran Anwar Hashmi on 23 March 1979 in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India) is an Indian actor.
His birth name is Emran Anwar Hashmi, he is born to a Muslim father and Catholic mother. He later changed it to Farhaan Hashmi but recently decided to keep his original name but add an extra "a" as per numerology. He graduated from Sydenham in Mumbai where he studied graphics and animations . He is related to Mahesh Bhatt and is a cousin to actress turned director Pooja Bhatt.
Hashmi made his debut in 2003 with the film Footpath but it did not do well at the box office. He shot to fame with Murder (2004) which was his first hit. His next few films such as Aashiq Banaya Aapne, Kalyug and Gangster have done moderately well at the box office.
Emraan is also famous for his kissing scenes in all of his movies. He is referred among the youngsters as serial-kisser (based on the fashionable word serial-killer) because of the number of kisses he does in his movies as this trend has started in the bollywood films from 4 years and was not common before. Emraan also described his first on screen kiss during an interview claiming that he was very nervous and almost opted out of the scene before going ahead and shooting it with the female co-star.
