Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi says on-screen kissing has lost important in the current era because every other movie features intimate scenes.
“It (kissing scene) lost value long back. I didn’t think it had shock value when I started off but obviously it did. I didn’t think about it too much but people around were more conservative than me,” Emraan said.
The 35-year-old actor is happy to be a part of upcoming film “Hamari Adhuri Kahani” and says he wants to do more emotional roles from now on.
“I think when mature film comes my way I am spoilt by choice, I want to play more emotional roles. Something in this film has touched me and I want to do more such film that evoke that emotion. I feel the industry will see me in a different light post ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahaani’,” he said.
The film, directed by Mohit Suri, also stars Vidya Balan and Rajkumar Rao and will hit theatres on June 12.
Emraan said people were eager to see another romantic act between him and National Award-winning actress Balan on the big screen after they starred in “The Dirty Picture”.
“Even Milan Luthria (Director of ‘The Dirty Picture’) told us there was something in our on-screen chemistry and we should do an intense romantic film. He was also going to offer us a film but things did not work out.
“We did “Ghanchakaar” which was ten years in a marriage and yelling at each other we didn’t have much scope and then we have HAK this an out romantic film (HAK),” Emraan said.
