Kamal Haasan left smoking to continue with smooch scenes
Coimbatore: Superstar of the Southern film industry, Kamal Haasan is very busy right now as he is planning to release the sequel of “Vishwaroopam” titled “Vishwaroopam 2” soon. He revealed that he started smoking when he was just 11 years old. But then the actor had to stop smoking due to several reasons, and one primary reason amongst them is because of the lip locking scenes onscreen.
Lip lock steamy scenes were common in his films, and therefore he had to quit the habit of smoking as heroines were not comfortable kissing a hero who smokes. He says that the heroines must have had tough time doing the lip lock scene after he had so many cups of coffee and cigarettes throughout the day. He also added that the youngsters too should quit smoking, keeping in mind their girl friends and wives.
