Bipasha Basu will not kiss!
The Players bombshell has no qualms about donning a bikini or doing love-making scenes, but when it comes to kissing, the bold actor develops cold feet
Bipasha Basu has a killer body that she shows off with no inhibitions. In her upcoming films – Players and Dhoom 3 – the 32-year-old promises to present more visual treats with her bikini sequences and love-making scenes.The dusky beauty recently admitted that while it’s very easy for her to pull off an intimate scene, it’s the on-screen kissing that makes things uncomfortable for her. “For me, love-making is no big deal. it is like any other thing. But when it comes to kissing, I have not overcome the hurdle. It is tough. I feel it is too private a moment and also the way we are we brought up, the kind of cinema we are exposed to when I started acting, kissing was not a regular thing,” Bipasha said in an interview. With intimacy becoming a regular feature in Bollywood films, we see more kisses in our cinema with every passing day. So what’s the big deal? After all, Bips managed to kiss her then-boyfriend John Abraham in Jism and Ranbir Kapoor in Bachna Ae Haseeno quite..err..convincingly, wethought! Maybe it’s the emotional involvement that goes into kissing that bothers the actor more than the physicality of on-screen intimate moments. When asked what makes her uncomfortable about kissing, Bips says that when she sees lip-contact in English films it’s a no big deal, but when she has to lip-lock for a Bollywood movie, it becomes a block she has not overcome yet! Or does she just need to find the right lips to zone in on? We wonder….
