Salman refuses to kiss Jacqueline Fernandez
The Baadshah had given his fans quite the shock when he broke his decade old rule of ‘No kissing’ onscreen. The intimate kiss scene between Katrina Kaif and Shahrukh Khan in Jab Tak Hai Jaan showed India’s most romantic hero kiss his real life arch rival’s ex-girlfriend onscreen.
Enter Salman Khan, the highly committed actor who apparently doesn’t even listen to himself once he has made a commitment!
The scene in question required Salman to pass out on the sofa and thereafter, Jacqueline was supposed to seduce him. But, after the scene was narrated to Salman, the actor rejected it, claiming it was “cheap and vulgar” to have Jackie seduce him in this manner.
Interestingly, though Salman had done a similar scene in his old film Biwi No 1, where he had to lie upon Sushmita Sen, he rejected the one with Jackie as he’s deliberately refraining from doing such scenes on-screen.
It should be noticed that Salman is perhaps the only actor in Bollywood, who’s not performed a kissing scene till date. Well, we appreciate the fact that Salman is concerned about what his little fans see on-screen, we are only wondering how Jacqueline is taking this rejection?
Shahrukh had said at the HT Leadership Summit 2012, “I had a couple of rules actually – that I won’t ride a horse and I won’t kiss. Both are cumbersome. I don’t know how to do both on screen,”
Srk added that he had to do the scene because the story demanded it.
Shahrukh further said, “I will be very honest. Adi (Aditya Chopra), Yashji and Katrina, and I say this with all humility and thankfulness to them, that they knew I was awkward, I had issues and I am a very easy actor to work with. They are like my family and they said, ‘You don’t have to do this’ and then they got together and they forced me and then even paid me for it.”
