Ruslaan Mumtaaz, the cutie from Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar and Tere Sangg, is back with another film, I Don’t Luv U. It actually hurts me to type the name of this film out because I don’t understand why it would’ve been so difficult for the makers to have titled it I Don’t Love You instead, but I’m just digressing here. The film is about two young lovers who get embroiled in an MMS scandal, so of course Ruslaan has a kissing scene with co-star Chetna Pande – and apparently, his mom is worried that he’s turning into a serial kisser!
Ruslaan told IANS, “My mother is worried, and she keeps telling me that ‘no girl will marry you’. She feels I will create an image, a perception and will be called the next serial kisser. In three films, I have kissed three heroines already. If I like a story, and it requires a kiss, it’s okay. But I won’t work with people who want to add a kiss to the story just like that.”
So the poor guy has to pacify his mother by saying he can’t choose a film based on whether there’s a kissing scene or not! But luckily it seems like he can get the kissing scene done in one take – he advised Chetna to not be nervous and just do it in one take, because it gets uncomfortable only if you have to shoot the scene repeatedly. I wonder what Kartik and Mishti have to say about that?
