Kaminey Kapur has been a part of some of the hottest onscreen kisses — most of them with women he has been linked to. But will he manage to create that kind of steaming chemistry with Anil Kapoor’s laadli beti?

While Shahid Kapoor is quite an experienced guy when it comes to onscreen kisses, Sonam Kapoor is an amateur in this department. Shahid has done some memorable kissing sequences, mostly with the women he has been romantically involved with or has been linked to. Cases in point: Kareena Kapoor in Jab We Met, Priyanka Chopra in Kaminey and Anushka Sharma in Badmaash Company. Buzz is that Shahid was the one who insisted on adding a smooch to the Mausam script. Sonam, on the other hand, has been trying her best to steer clear of kissing scenes. No wonder she developed cold feet and protested madly when she was asked to do a smooch with Shahid for Mausam. Director Pankaj Kapur is said to have called Sonam’s papa Anil Kapoor about it in a desperate attempt to convince her. Sonam refused to give in and even told the curious media that there was no lip-lock in the film. Considering that Mausam has been pitched as an ‘epic romance’, we wonder how Sonam expected to get away without sharing a kiss with her onscreen lover. Anyway, she did give in finally and all’s well. But we wonder whether this one will be as hot as Shahid’s earlier smooch-fests, since we hear that the two stars shared a very cold relationship thrugh the shoot, despite their claims of having become good friends. In any case, why such a hue and cry about one little semi-intimate scene? Grow up girl, it’s just a kiss! Right, Shahid?
