Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi, who has been conferred the title of being a 'serial kisser', turned 34 years on Sunday.
Before starting his career as an actor, Hashmi worked with Vishesh Films as an assistant director on Vikram Bhatt´s ´Raaz´ (2002).
In 2003, he made his acting debut with Bhatt´s ´Footpath´ and followed it with the commercially successful romantic thriller ´Murder´ (2004).
Hashmi has delivered several commercially successful films including ´Gangster´, Kalyug´, ´Zeher´; but critics has often labelled him as a "one note actor" while criticizing for his repetitive roles.
Hashmi eventually garnered wide critical acclaim for his performances in ´Once Upon a Time in Mumbai´ (2010), ´The Dirty Picture´ (2011) and ´Shanghai´ (2012).
The actor is considered as one of the most popular celebrities in India with his charming on-screen presence.

The actor presently has two big projects coming up including, Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj´s joint venture ´Ek thi Daayan´, scheduled to release in April and UTV Productions´ ´Ghanchakkar´, which will release in July.
