Emraan Hashmi might have lived with the tag of Bollywood's serial kisser for several years, but one thing that remains undisputed about him is his ability to steer away from controversies. The actor's filmography might boast of far and few roles worth remembering including films like The Dirty Picture, Shanghai and recently Selfiee and Tiger 3, but his fan following has remained staunchly loyal to him.

With the success of Tiger 3 ushering in new possibilities for the actor, Emraan has been engaging with the media and the audience.

In a recent interaction, the actor was asked to reflect upon his uncomfortable opinions made during the rapid fire round on Koffee With Karan S4, when the actor made his debut on the couch alongside uncle and filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt.

The actor said that while he regrets some of his answers made, he would rather avoid from featuring on the couch than stir up another controversy. Emraan maintains that he isn't one to mince his words or sugar coat his views but he wishes to be more mindful towards others' sentiments.

To quote him, the 44-year old actor says, “If I go on Koffee With Karan again, I’m gonna make a mess of things again. I think I'll be worse off in the rapid-fire round than I was before.”

The actor was also quick to add that he had nothing personal against the actors he spoke about, but his answers came from a place where he was only eyeing the hamper. "I don’t really have anything against these people. I just wanted to win the hamper. It just becomes a competitive thing and you say these weird things,” he adds.

For the unversed, when Emraan was asked to comment about what comes to his mind when hears 'plastic', he said 'Aishwarya'. Expressing regret, the actor says, “I’m a big fan of Aishwarya. It’s the format of the show. I can’t not say things and not win the hamper. I love her. I have always been a great admirer of her work. I knew people would make a big deal out of it… so what, people make a big deal out of nonsense all the time.”

Emraan has been garnering rave reviews for his performance in Tiger 3 as disgraced army man Aatish Rehman, who goes rogue and plots a dangerous mission to assassinate the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
