Last seen playing the role of a ruthless antagonist in 'Tiger 3' opposite Salman Khan,actor Emraan Hashmi is now gearing up for the show called 'Showtime' which gives a glimpse of the functioning of the industry. While on-screen the actor is known for his label of serial kisser he has been experimenting with varied roles that is far from the label attached to him. Offscreen, the actor is known to be honest and unfiltered with his thoughts and words. 


In an episode of filmmaker Karan Johar's chat show 'Koffee With Karan', during the rapid fire round, Emraan's controversial statement made headlines. He had appeared in the show alongside filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt. Both are now for their unabashed statements and turned it into a controversial episode. However, the highlight of the episode was Hashmi equating Aishwarya Rai to 'plastic' during the rapid fire round. He received major backlash for his statement about the former Miss World.


Now, Hashmi has once again addressed the time saying that he had to bear its brunt for quite some time. When asked during a chat with Bollywood Bubble if his character in 'Showtime' was similar to how the actor was during his 2014 KWK episode, Hashmi said, “I am playing a fictional character here (‘Showtime’), who calls a spade a spade.”


“Talking about Koffee With Karan, well I had to bear the brunt for it for quite some time for really calling a spade a spade. You know what, when that rapid-fire round happened, Karan had cut the shot, and he just looked around on the set and everyone was dumbfounded. He asked ‘Can you actually keep this (Emraan’s answer)?’ And a couple of people behind the camera said ‘Yes’.”

Following the episode, Hashmi clarified his remarks during an interview with Hindustan Times. “I didn’t mean it. 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,” he said.
