NEW DELHI: Up-and-coming Bollywood hea-rtthrob Emraan Hashmi will give up on-screen kissing because it bores him, the actor said in an interview publi-shed on April 29.
â€œI didnâ€™t want to do the kissing scenes in my recent movies, but they were integral to the script, so I couldnâ€™t refuse them,â€ Hashmi, 26, told the Ti-mes of India new-spaper. â€œBut I will not be doing th-em anymore, because eve-ry time I go to the theatre to watch my film I see myself kissing â€” and itâ€™s boring,â€ he said.
However, the young star denied his decision had anything to do with his upcoming marriage. Hashmi said he will marry his girlfriend of four years â€œat the end of the yearâ€.
Hashmi has starred in a dozen films since his 2003 debut role. He is currently playing the â€œgood boyâ€ in director Subhash Ghaiâ€™s Good Boy, Bad Boy, he said.
