Born as Emran Anwar Hashmi, he later changed his name to Farhaan Hashmi and then reverted back to his original name with an extra ‘a’. Emraan’s father was a Muslim while his mother a Catholic. The actor has many relatives and close friends in Karachi, Pakistan. Emraan finished his college from Sydenham College where he studied graphics and animation.

Emraan is not new to the glitz of Bollywood as he is the nephew of director Mahesh Bhatt and cousin to Pooja Bhatt. He married Parveen Shahani on 14th December ’06 and held a lavish reception at a posh hotel in Bandra. The event was restricted to only close family members and friends.

Emraan made his debut in the film Footpath in ’03, but the movie was a flop and bombed at the BO. His next film Murder, however was much better and catapulted him to fame, this was his first hit. The next few movies like Zeher, Kalyug and Gangster have also managed to do well at the box office. But the sound tracks of all these films were instant hits and helped the actor create a huge fan base. The play back singer for most of his songs was Himesh Reshammiya, Kunal Ganjawala and Atif Aslam.

Recently Emraan was back in the news with his famous kissing scenes in almost every movie that he did. It was such a rage that he was termed as the ‘serial kisser’ of Bollywood. Apparently in an interview Emraan said that he was nervous about the kissing scene and almost opted out of the film, but after trying it out, it looks like he couldn’t get enough.

Emraan has decided to get rid of his image of lover boy and being the ‘Serial Kisser’ and develop an image of a mature actor. For this purpose he has requested to play the role of a ghost in the movie Raaz 2, however it has not yet been decided as to what role he will get.

Emraan has always been followed by controversies as though the filed he is in has them as a free tag along. Besides this it is rumoured that he charges a total of RS.80 lakh for a film. Hope this hi-paid actor can live up to his new image whatever it may be.
