Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan refused to lock lips with Bollywood actors Sonam Kapoor and Alia Bhatt while filming for Khoobsurat and Kapoor & Sons.

Alia Bhatt told Deccan Chronicle, Fawad and her were supposed to kiss as per the script of the film, however, Fawad could not be persuaded for it.

“There was a kiss in the film with Fawad. When we did the scene, it was decided that we would cheat-kiss. Still, every time I would go near his face, he would flinch. I had to keep reassuring him I wouldn’t compromise his chastity,” she said.

The two starred together in the hit 2016 family drama with Sidharth Malhotra, Rishi Kapoor, Ratna Pathak Shah and Rajat Kapoor.

Earlier in 2014, Fawad refused a similar scene with Soman Kapoor. At the time, the Pakistani actor had said he did not do the scene as he didn’t want to hurt the sentiments of his core audience. “I think I need to respect their feelings. A lot of my audience would be quite offended if I suddenly started losing my inhibitions,” he had said.

Never really been in touch with Fawad, Anushka says

When asked if he’d kiss in the future Fawad had replied saying, “You never know. I never say never. I’d rather walk the unpredictable path. Besides, I’d never like to throw in something titillating, just to spike and spice up a film. I kind of like the idea of virgin romance to just show the couple’s feelings through words and gestures, and then leave the rest to the audiences’ imagination.”

During an interview last year, Fawad left Alia blushing. At the trailer launch of Kapoor & Sons, Alia was asked how it was to work with the Pakistani heartthrob and play his lover. Alia said, “We got along really well. We generally had a lot of fun while we were shooting.” However, Fawad interrupted saying, “She is lying, she was floored by me.” To this, Alia was just left blushing.

    Offcourse he will never kiss in his career as he will now do only Lollywood movies after Bollywood ban. Kiss is against our culture.Recommend
