Biography

Emraan Anwar Hashmi is an Indian film actor who appears in Hindi films.

Early Life
Emraan Anwar Hashmi was born to Anwar Hashmi and Maherahh Hashmi. Emraan Hashmi changed his name to Farhaan Hashmi but reverted to his original name on the advice of numerologists.

Personal Life

Hashmi graduated from Sydenham College in Mumbai, India. He is related to Pooja Bhatt, an actress turned director, Naseem Ismail, who lives in Pakistan (Lyari) well known by the name of (RamsEz Baluch) & Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt who are his uncles. They are both producers, while the former is also a writer and director.

Movie Career
He is also known as a serial kisser in the Bollywood world. Hashmi made his movie debut in 2003 with the film Footpath which did not do well at the box office. He and co-star Mallika Sherawat shot to fame with Murder. He later appeared in such films as Zeher, Aashiq Banaya Apne, Kalyug, and Gangster, which have done well at the box office.

The soundtracks from these films have helped create a large fan base. Many of the songs from his movies have become instant hits. The playback singers for most of his film’s songs have been Himesh Reshammiya, K.K, Kunal Ganjawala and Atif Aslam.

In 2008, Emraan’s first release Jannat had a 100% opening which made it a hit at the box office. His first movie in 2009, Raaz – The Mystery Continues, was also a box office success, while his second movie of the year, Tum Mile, was not a box office success. Apart from the music that helped his career take off, his kissing scenes were well-received.

Though not frequent, some of his other films have included scenes with kisses. Nicknamed “The serial kisser of Bollywood”, he has expressed his desire to discontinue kissing and to be known as a mature actor. Throughout his film career, he has kissed most of the heroines in his films except in Footpath, Chocolate: Deep Dark Secrets, Kalyug, Awarapan, The Killer, Dil Diya Hai, Good Boy Bad Boy, and Raaz – The Mystery Continues.

Controversies
In July 2009, Hashmi claimed that a housing society in Mumbai’s upmarket Pali Hill locality refused to grant him permission to buy an apartment because he was a Muslim. The housing society rejected the allegations and in turn accused Hashmi and his family of intimidatory behaviour.

Hashmi’s allegations were condemned by other Muslim actors in Bollywood, especially Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan while the Indian-Islamic Cultural Center accused Hashmi of spurring communal tensions in India.

On 10 August 2009, Hashmi backtracked from his accusation and said that the housing society has not discriminated against him and termed the incident as a “miscommunication”.
