Chetan Bhagat recently found himself in tough spot when his kids quizzed him about Arjun Kapoor-Alia Bhatt's kissing scene in 2 States. Kapoor plays a character inspired by Bhagat in the adaptation of the best-selling author's semi-autobiographical novel while Bhatt's role is a take on Bhagat's wife.
The novel 2 States is the story of a couple from Delhi and Tamil Nadu, who have a hard time convincing their parents about their marriage. The book is inspired by Bhagat's real life love story.
Baffled by his kids' queries about the intimate scenes in the movie 2 States, Bhagat posted on Twitter: "Dad, why are you kissing mom so much in the 2 states movie ads?" #wheretohide #whattosay"."
"Hahaha !! Wow ;)," an apparently amused Alia wrote.
"Sab tumhari galti hai!" replied Bhagat, to which Alia added, "haha we are following the book sir ;)"

2 States kiss to help in good opening?
Many films that hit theatres recently have had actors lock lips in the promo, along with those of upcoming movies. Even as these rushes are a hit online, the industry stands divided on whether these scenes actually ensure a good opening.
