No kiss for this miss!
After smooching co-stars Himanshu Malik some 17 times in Khwahish and Emraan Hashmi, Dharmendra and Rahul Bose several times in Murder, Kiss Kis Ki Kismat and Pyaar Ke Side/Effects respectively, Mallika Sherawat has now turned prudish.
For the last few days, there’s been a buzz about a passionate kissing scene between Himesh Reshammiya and Mallika Sherawat in his debut film, Aap Kaa Surroor: The Moviee — The Real Luv Story.
However, Himesh denies the existence of such a scene. “How can I kiss Mallika in the film? It doesn’t go with the story at all. It’s just a rumour and there is no truth to it.”
However, we’re being told that the kissing scene does not exist in the film because Madame Mallika wanted it that way. Apparently, Mallika had made it clear that she was not willing to do any such scene in the film.
A source close to her points out, “Right at the narration ,she made it very clear that there would be no kissing scene in the film. In fact, her contract with the production clearly states that she will not be kissing in the film.”
Despite this, a source working on the film says that Reshammiya has been flooded with queries regarding the existence of such a scene, in light of Mallika’s previous track record.
“Himesh has been asked by several people if such a scene exists. He laughs it off every time anyone asks him. But it won’t make sense to justify the placement of a kiss between him and Mallika.
The film is a passionate love story between Himesh and Riaa (aka Hansika Motwani),” says the source.
When asked if there was a reason behind Mallika’s demand for a ‘no-kissing’ clause in her contract, the source says, “Her reasoning was that her character isn’t required to do anything along those lines and she was quite sure of what she won’t do in the film.”
