Shabana Azmi shared her take on the buzz created by her kissing scene with Dharmendra

Well, the kissing scene between two stalwart actors like Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi was quite an unexpected move, and nearly every member of the audience was surprised. In fact, the scene faced quite the backlash from many, since people were unable to accept such a move enacted by senior actors. Previously, in an interaction with Zoom Digital, Shabana Azmi reacted to the buzz that her scene created and said:

“I never thought it would create such a fuss! People are laughing and cheering when we do the kiss. While shooting it was never an issue. It is true that I haven’t kissed much on screen before. But who wouldn’t want to kiss a man as handsome as Dharmendra?”


Shabana revealed whether her husband, Javed Akhtar had any objections to her kissing scene

In the same interview, Shabana Azmi also addressed whether her husband, Javed Akhtar had shared any objections to her on-screen kiss with Dharmendra in Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. Addressing the matter, the actress revealed that unlike the most obvious reaction which people expected, her husband, was every bit comfortable and not at all bothered. In fact, what he objected to was the rowdy behaviour she reflected while watching the film’s premiere beside him.

Dharmendra had also expressed his perspective on doing a kissing scene with Shabana Azmi

Not just Shabana Azmi, but Dharmendra, too had received quite the flak from the audience on agreeing to do a kissing scene at his old age. However, being professional actors, he didn’t bother much about the uproar it created in the masses. During a promotional event for RARKPK, Dharmendra talked about the highly debated scene and said:

“I am hearing that Shabana and I have surprised the audience with the kissing scene, and at the same time they have even applauded it. I think people weren’t expecting it and it came very suddenly which is why it created an impact. The last time I did a kissing scene was in Life In A Metro with Nafisa Ali and at that time too people had appreciated it."
