Bollywood is highly smitten by Six-pack thing! The latest to join the bandwagon is none other than our very own Emraan Hashmi, who is fondly, addressed the serial Kisser of Bollywood.

Emraan will be seen flaunting his newly acquired abs in the upcoming film ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAI produced by Balaji Motion Pictures. This is the first time the Bhatt regular Emraan Hashmi is working with Ekta Kapoor's production.

'The role of ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAI demanded it. It's not just about six packs; my character had to look physically tough. It was one of the key requirements of the script,' reveals Emraan.

Director Milan Luthria gave a complete makeover to Emraan so as to remove the serial kisser tag from him. Milan discloses, 'Emraan has always been the underdog & his character is that of a rebel, a dark horse....styled on the lines of James Dean. I wanted to break his 'serial kisser' image and add shock value to the film. I chose Emraan & then styled him this way as it was extremely difficult to find a youngster who, in levels of intensity, could be equal & at the same time opposite to that of Ajay Devgn's.'

The shooting of the film will finish in January, and the film will release somewhere in May-June 2010.
