I am really looking forward to R. Balki‘s Ki & Ka. Not only is he one of my favourite directors, he is also someone who extracts the best performances from his actors. This time around he has Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor at hand and if the promos are anything to go by, we see a winner. When the first trailer released, there was a lot of talk about the kissing scenes between the leads in the film. It became a talking point because Bebo had famously gone on record once to say that she and Saif won’t be kissing on screen anymore.
I think too much fuss is being made out of a non-issue. It’s being a little silly to keep on about the kissing bit when there’s much else to talk about. Everybody’s talking so much about it that now I want to clear all doubts. When we make certain statements we may mean something but a few years later down the line, as we grow older, wiser and more mature, our mindset, views and outlook to life changes too. So, if we said something then, we believed in it, today that has changed. When Saif and I got married there was a slight possessiveness and we decided let’s not do some things on screen now that we are married and yes, kissing was one of them. That happens, I think, with most newly married couple.
