Reactions to kiss scene

Many reacted to a Reddit post that said, "It's so disappointing to see Avneet Kaur, who is just 21, paired opposite someone (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), who is 49." One wrote, "Shocking how its coming from Kangana."

A comment read, "What on earth is this?" A person also commented, “Gross! Also what is up with Nawazuddin's movie choices?” Another one said about the actor, “Can't defend Nawaz (Nawazuddin) anymore. Bahut ho gaya outsider outsider (Too much has been said about him being an outside in Bollywood).” Replying to the statement, one wrote, "Being an outsider does not make one greater than the others or excusable. It’s high time people stop putting them on pedestals."

Some also defended Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Avneet Kaur's kiss in Tiku Weds Sheru. One commented, "Shah Rukh Khan also had a kissing scene with Anushka. It's not new." The actors were seen together in Jab Harry Met Sejal (2017). Shah Rukh is 57, while Anushka is 35.
