Emraan started his career in Bollywood with director Vikram Bhatt's 2003 thriller 'Footpath'. This is a still from 'Zeher' (2005).
Slowly and steadily, this serial kisser image got him established in Bollywood, and then he started to experiment with his roles.
For a good part of his career, Emraan developed a certain kind of on-screen image which made him popular among the youth. He was given the tag of 'serial kisser' by film commentators.
'The Dirty Picture' (2011) started his image make-over and 'Shanghai' (2012) presented him as a serious actor.
He is still doing films like 'Rush' (2012) and 'Raaz 3' (2012) but at the same time he is doing films where he has a chance of showing his acting capabilities.
Emraan Hashmi is continuously cementing his place in the film industry as an actor who can blend the class and the mass.
Emraan is a doting father as well. He married Parveen Shahani in 2008.
He doesn't shy away from making public appearances. This photograph from a Janmasthami celebration is a proof.
He occasionally grabs the attention of artists as well. His popular image has been portrayed on this cake.
Emraan Hashmi was born on March 24, 1979 in Mumbai.
Born to Anwar Hashmi and Maherahh Hashmi, Emraan is also the nephew of Mahesh Bhatt.
Very soon, he is going to be seen with Vidya Balan in director Rajkumar Gupta's 'Ghanchakkar'.
Emraan's big break came in 2004 when he acted opposite Mallika Sherawat in 'Murder'. The film was directed by Anurag Basu.
We wish him all the success on his 34th birthday. May this year bring a lot of success for Emraan Hashmi.
