I like to do negative roles, says Emraan Hashmi
Indore: He has played a spoilt, carefree man, who doesn`t fit in the contemporary hero image many a times and actor Emraan Hashmi says he is no mood to change his image.
When the `Serial Kisser of Bollywood` was asked about him being stuck up with certain kind of roles, he said, "Nobody asks this question to Shahrukh Khan, while for the past 20 years he has been doing romantic roles on the screen. However, these questions make no difference since he is successful in his field and people adore him."
Hashmi, who was here to promote an apparel brand, made it clear that he loves to play an anti-hero and believes that romantic and comedy roles would not suit him.
"Actually, audience wants to see every actor from a certain point of view. So, there are certain advantages of staying in limits," he said.
The 31-year-old actor added that there is no clear demarcation between heroes and villains these days as Bollywood has moved ahead over a period of time. Hashmi wants the audience to go to the theaters, watch his movies and get entertained.
"We make movies to entertain people. I don`t think that my movies can change the world," the actor said.
When asked about his position in comparison to new promising actors like Ranbir Kapoor, he said, "I am successful in my field and I work in my own style. I have competition with myself and I am my own critic."
Hashmi, who started his career in 2003 with `Footpath`, will next be seen `Once Upon A Time I Mumbai` where he plays Shoaib, an angry youth of the 70`s era. Shoaib, who has spend his childhood in the streets of Mumbai, eventually joins the underworld when he grows.
