Bipasha Basu, who will be seen locking lips with Emraan Hashmi in Raaz 3, has made an interesting revelation. The uninhibited actress has admitted that while she has no qualms about love-making scenes, kissing makes her uncomfortable.
"Physical intimacy - it's something I am totally comfortable with. It doesn't really bother me. But when it comes to kissing, which for me is very, very intimate, I am very uncomfortable," she told a daily.
So is it like this right from the beginning? "No, the first such scene was with John, who was then my boyfriend, so it didn't even register on my mind, I didn't even think twice about it. Only when I saw it on screen did I go - what have I done! But when the actual scene happened, I didn't have any problem," the daily quoted her as saying.
Bipasha revealed to the daily that she tried her best to avoid the liplock with Ranbir Kapoor: "With Ranbir I had a very big problem, and for one month I fought over it, but they would all laugh - saying this is the first actress saying, take out the kissing scene, put in a lovemaking one if you have to! Kissing onscreen is the worst thing in the world. I'm OK with lovemaking scenes, but I hate kissing. I tried to cancel the Bachna Ai Haseeno kiss with Ranbir for one month, but failed. I tried to cancel a scene in Dum Maro Dum; I succeeded."
"With Madhavan, it was just a peck. He's a very dear friend and it was very, very awkward. I had to have a glass of champagne before that scene, and I was still like 'it's not happening, this is my friend!' It was terrible. Then when it came to Raaz 3, I thought, if I try to cancel a kiss from a serial kisser's film, the audience only will kill me! So for the first time, I didn't attempt to get it cancel," she told the daily.
