Happy playing villain

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 Shah Rukh Khan, who for the past 20 years 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 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.

He 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 theatres, 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 In Mumbaai where he plays Shoaib, an angry youth of the 70s era. Shoaib, who has spend his childhood on the streets of Mumbai, eventually joins the underworld when he grows.
