If there is anything besides his acting skills that Emraan Hashmi is known for, his on-screen kisses with the actresses in his movies. Today we bring you a look back at the time when Nargis Fakhri was not so comfortable sharing a kiss with Emraan in their movie ‘Azhar’ and the reason behind the same was his ‘moustache’. Yes that is correct. Scroll below to read the scoop.

Released in 2016, Azhar is based on the life of ex-Pakistani cricketer Azhar Mohammad and along with Nargis, the film also starred Prachi Desai in a pivotal role. Looking at the posters of the movie, it was pretty obvious that Emraan was wearing a fake mustache before that and Nargis felt ‘rough’ when he kissed him.

Speaking to Huffingtonpost, Nargis Fakhri called kissing Emraan Hashmi “annoying” in Azhar, saying: “He’s done that many times. For me it was pretty gross. See that mustache (pointing to the movie poster)? How do I know that’s not made of public hair? I had to kiss that. Not once, several times. The mustache was annoying as hell [laughs].”

Nargis Fakhri played the role of Azhar Mohammad’s second wife Sangeeta Bijlani and if we are to believe the reports, the role was first offered to Kareena Kapoor Khan. After Bebo refused to play the same, it was then offered to the Rockstar actress who accepted.

The actress added: “I really didn’t know what happened, had no idea about the subject because you know I’m not from here. I didn’t know who Azhar was, what he had done. I agreed because I liked that I could portray the character well, I did my best with the source I had: Bijlani’s previous films.”

Later in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Nargis Fakhri also expressed her discomfort over multiple kissing scenes for the film, saying, “I probably didn’t enjoy the song as much as he did. There was a lot of kissing. It was so much so that I was on a I wasn’t sure at one point if they were revivals, part of the song, or someone playing a prank on me.”
