MUMBAI; Actor Emraan Hashmi, who has earned the nickname "serial kisser" for his
on-screen kisses, says that his wife Parveen still sulks about his
kisses and calms down only after Emraan gifts her a bag for every film

At the launch of his book, "The Kiss Of Life",
Emraan was asked about his wife's reaction to his kisses. Emraan said,
"She still sulks. She doesn't hit me as hard now, earlier it used to be

and some where I've kissed have also flopped."
Upon being asked
to write a book a love guru, he said, "I got rejected like three times,
so that's the love guru for you. I think I'd make a disastrous book...
I'll think about it, I'll actually give it a thought."
Emraan will next be seen in the film "Raaz Reboot".
