After a denial from Sonam Kapoor, there is indeed a passionate lip-lock between Sonam and Shahid in Mausam.
"There is no kissing scene in Mausam." Sonam Kapoor had said earlier. There was a time when Sonam was not exactly on friendly terms with Shahid. Apparently when Pankaj Kapur, director of the film had informed Sonam about the kiss, she had put her foot down. Her refusal created drama on the sets. Kapur had even called up her father Anil Kapoor in desperation. But to no avail. Finally the actor succumbed to the director's demand.
Now that all the strife and uncertainty is in the past, Sonam told Mumbai Mirror about the kiss: "Jitna hona chahiye tha, utna hi rakha gaya (Whatever was required has been retained)."
"Sonam is a fantastic actress. She had a very comfortable equation with Pankaj and Shahid. If there were any aspersions whatsoever, they were cast aside during the course of the shoot," the tabloid quotes Sheeta Talwar, producer of the film as saying.
Although it's Sonam's kissing debut, for Shahid, it's his fouth time. He has locked lips with Kareena Kapoor (Jab We Met), Priyanka Chopra (Kaminey) and Anushka Sharma (Badmaash Company).
