It was pretty massive deal when Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar shared a kiss on Bade Acche Lagte Hain a few years ago and looks like the audience is still not ready to accept kisses on TV.
For some, the kissing scene between Anil Kapoor and his lady love, Surveen in the trailer of the second season of 24 left a sour tang in the mouth.
Reacting to the furore around the ‘lip-lock’ scene, the 59-year-old actor said, “About time we stopped making a fuss about these things,” reports DNA.
“The content in 24 is not juvenile. We are looking at a series which has certain international standards to uphold,” added the Dil Dhadakne Do actor.
He, further said that the kissing scene was included as it was a dire need of the story-line,”This is not a light-hearted soap or sitcom. 24 is a political thriller. My character is shown to be in a relationship with a woman (Surveen Chawla). I’ve kissed in my films when there has been a need to. In 24, a lip-lock was needed. So we went ahead and did it.”
