It has been said that despite how they look on screen, doing intimate scenes for a film isn’t a nice experience. However, when it’s with a co-star you don’t fully get along with is even harder, which is exactly what Kangna Ranaut went through whilst shooting these scenes with Shahid Kapoor in their upcoming ‘Rangoon’.
“I don’t like intimate scenes in a film. They are the most difficult to shoot. You have a formal equation with someone and suddenly you are into each other’s mouth. That big moustache of Shahid is horrible. It was such a … Not a turn-off but a tragedy of different level!” Pinkvilla reports the actress stating.
She went on to add, “When I asked him about it, he said he applies wax and has a running nose! Mera naak isme bah ke jaata hai.”
When Kapoor was asked about what his co-star said, he wasn’t very impressed. “I have to tell you that Kangana makes up things in her head. She has a vivid imagination. I don’t remember telling her all this at all,” he said.
Playing Chinese whispers, the media caught up with Ranaut and asked about her reply to Kapoor’s statement. Becoming defensive, the actress took another actor’s name whom she’s had a feud with and replied, That line he (Shahid) must have borrowed from Hrithik (Roshan). He would have thought that dude I will borrow these claims from Hrithik.”
She went on to add, “I haven’t said such things. I give my version of situation. When you are enacting a scene, we don’t do time pass. When we are asked questions on intimate scenes, especially to girls, there is a sleazy undertone to it. ‘Kaise laga aapko kiss karke?’ What am I supposed to say? I can’t say acha laga ya kharab laga. My purpose is to answer it as an actor. So as an actor I said there were 50 people while we were shooting in the mud scene. And my co-actor had a cold. So it was the most convenient thing to do. It was made into a horrible…. I don’t take these things seriously.”
“Also, media needs to understand that they shouldn’t ask such questions. They ask me who is the better kisser? Mujhe kya lena dena? What do you mean? These men have just had babies and we don’t look at them in that way. This is our work and it is our rozi roti. But people talk in such a frivolous way. And I never talk like that about my work. There is always a risk of being misquoted horribly but it is better than saying I love Shahid’s boxers. Isn’t it better? (laughs),” she added.
