Varun Dhawan: I was okay kissing in front of my father

The Main Tera Hero actor says what’s the big deal in kissing

Actor Varun Dhawan has five kissing scenes in his forthcoming film Main Tera Hero, directed by his father David Dhawan. The young actor finds nothing wrong in locking lips onscreen “in the 21st century”. In the promos of the film, the Student Of The Year fame actor can be seen locking lips with his co-star Ileana D’Cruz.

“I was okay kissing in front of my father,” Varun told reporters at the cover launch of Stardust magazine, featuring him with his second co-star in the film, Nargis Fakhri. “It’s an important part of the climax. There are five kisses in the film,” he added.

The 26-year-old further said that “it’s high time” people stop creating hype over a kiss in a film. “I think in today’s age, in the 21st century, it’s fine. What’s the big deal in it,” he asked.

“It is just a kiss. It is just an expression of love that the two characters are feeling at that time,” he added.

Main Tera Hero is slated to release April 4.
