Fawad Khan refused to do a kissing scene with Alia Bhatt in Kapoor & Sons
While shooting for Kapoor & Sons, Fawad Khan refused to do a lip lock scene with Alia Bhatt even though it was part of the script.
This is not the first time this has happened. The Pakistani also refused to kiss Sonam Kapoor in Khubsoorat. On being asked why, Fawad explained, “I didn’t want to hurt the sentiments of my core audience; I think I need to respect their feelings. A lot of my audience would be quite offended if I suddenly started losing my inhibitions.”
Alia bhatt spoke about the incident saying, “There was a kiss in the film with Fawad. When we did the scene, it was decided that we would cheat-kiss. Still, every time I would go near his face, he would flinch. I had to keep reassuring him I wouldn’t compromise his chastity.”
On being asked if Fawad would ever do a kissing scene in the future, the actor replied, “You never know. I never say never. I’d rather walk the unpredictable path. Besides, I’d never like to throw in something titillating, just to spike and spice up a film. I kind of like the idea of virgin romance to just show the couple’s feelings through words and gestures, and then leave the rest to the audience’s’ imagination.”
