Ahem! Ahem! Hope your wife is as fine with you kissing on-screen as you are, Arjun!
Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9 contestant Arjun Bijlani, who was last seen in the supernatural drama Naagin with the hot and sexy Mouni Roy, reveals that he has no problem doing intimate scenes on TV. He feels that it’s really hypocritical of us to be okay with watching such scenes in Hollywood and Bollywood films but to be uncomfortable watching it on television. He feels, if done aesthetically, TV audience would accept intimate scenes too!
“Sex sells, period. Societal norms have changed and today, kissing is no longer taboo. Interestingly, we have no problem watching Hollywood movies which have such scenes every 2 minutes. We don’t cringe, because it is shot aesthetically. I can’t understand why Indians make a hue and cry about sex (pauses). Indians are the biggest hypocrites. We may joke among friends about wanting to kiss a particular girl, but when we do kiss it becomes an issue. Our industry is no better. If a girl wears less clothes, it is a problem. If she wears more, even that is not palatable. If someone kisses on screen, it does not mean that he/she is characterless. If Bollywood stars like Hrithik Roshan kiss, it’s fine; why make an issue only when TV actors do it?,” Arjun told an entertainment portal.

Arjun has been associated with many popular shows like Left Right Left, Miley Jab Hum Tum in the past but it was after Naagin that he gained popularity. Although, he has no angst against the makers of Naagin 2 for not having him on the show, he is hopeful of becoming a part of Naagin 3 (if at all it happens). He is currently enjoying his time on Jhalak. He loves dancing and Jhalak has given him the platform to learn different dance forms and show the world that he is as good a dancer as he is an actor.
