Actor Emraan Hashmi, who has earned the title ‘serial kisser’ for his on-screen kisses in films, said that his wife Parveen ‘still sulks’ about his kisses and calms down only after Emraan gifts a bag to her. At the launch of his book, The Kiss Of Life, Emraan was asked about his wife’s reaction to the intimate scenes he features in. Emraan said: “She still sulks. She doesn’t hit me as hard now. Earlier it used to be with a bag, now it’s just with the hand. So she has kind of calmed down over the years.”

Does Emraan calm her down by buying her expensive jewellery? “I always buy her bags, for every kiss, for every film. She has got a cupboard full of bags. There’s one cupboard dedicated to bags,” he said. Considering the numerous kisses he shared with Nargis Fakhri in his last release Azhar, did he actually buy her that many bags? Emraan said: “As many times, but bag is only once. We’ve had a barter deal. That way I told her that I’ll be broke. Don’t take money for everything, take money for the film and buy a bag from it.” Emraan is the star of films like Murder, Zeher, Aksar, Aashiq Banaya Apne and Gangster.
