Some days we receive some really hilarious press releases and today is definitely one such day! A press note hit our inbox titled “37 Retakes For A Kiss In Subhash Ghai’s Kaanchi” and by then we knew that we’d gotten a much-needed laugh for our Monday afternoon.
The press release says:
“A scene in the film required Mishti to lock lips with the hero, Kartik Tiwari. Associate Director Anshuman Jha, pulled up the two for not kissing with full passion and true love. He further said that Subhash Ghai is someone who will not move his ground until he gets something done perfectly. After a continuous 37 retakes, Subhash Ghai was satisfied with the shot in the way that Mishti truly stood out.”
So when you finally do see that kiss on screen, just know – there’s a lot of work that went into it!
