|Many of Emraan Hashmi films have been for adults yet the actor enjoys a fan following among children. So have they been watching the adult-rated content?
Actor Emraan Hashmi, who has done several 'A' certificate films, finds it surprising that he has a huge fan following among kids and hopes they don't watch his films.
"It's kind of surprising. I hope they don't watch my films. I am sure it's probably a connect from music, television... that medium has always had a great impact. Because in many small cities my songs are played in radios so there is certain connection from there," Emraan told reporters during a felicitation for winners of the second edition of 'Art from the Heart'.
'Art from the Heart' is a unique CSR initiative by Edenred. The painting competition gave an opportunity to the NGO children to showcase their creativity.
Emraan Hashmi, who spent some time with the underprivileged children, says he connects well with the kids.
"It's a noble cause. I always used to connect with the kids. When you have your own child then this connection is enhanced. I always felt all of us... in our childhood days, we want to be part of this art form. I am very happy that these children come from different cities and get an opportunity to win. I wish there are many more such opportunities for such causes."
Didn't realise could act until pretty late: Emraan Hashmi
Actor Emraan Hashmi says that it wasn't until someone pushed him that he realised he could act and make acting his profession.
"I realised pretty late in life when someone pushed me and eventually I realised that it is something that I can do as a profession," the 33-year-old said here Monday at an event here.
Emraan says he always had an inclination towards arts, but couldn't pursue it further.
"Since school days, I had a liking for arts and crafts, but I didn't take it further. I should have. But eventually, I came back to a certain form of art - acting," he said.
Emraan is currently shooting for Ghanchakkar with Vidya Balan and will also be seen in Ek Thi Daayan.
