Well, considering the movie to be a rom-com, there is a moment in the film where Ranbir’s character goes onto kiss Deepika’s character. While it was all a part of the script, several nay-sayers ridiculed such a scene to be performed by the ex-couple. However, Imtiaz, on the contrary, revealed the importance of that particular scene, and revealed how filming it was a warm experience. In his words:

“We were shooting this at a studio. It was a stage that we created and lot of work had happened but this frame where he would enter from a certain place and he would enter from another place and they would be looking at each other from a very close distance. It’s a very difficult shot for actors to play because you are seeing them so close and one can’t formulate exactly what your reaction will be when you come so close to another person who belongs to the gender you are attracted to. It was a warm experience for all of us to watch.”
