Actors Shabana Azmi and Dharmendra’s kissing scene within the not too long ago launched Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani created fairly a buzz on social media amongst followers. Whereas some felt it was a daring but a nicely thought out addition within the movie, some discovered it cringe and stunning.
Unable to wrap her head across the chatter across the scene, veteran actor Zarina Wahab finds these discussions “irrelevant”, and stresses that it’s “part of an actor’s job”.
She explains, “We are actors and if the script demands anything, there is no harm in doing it. As far as age is concerned, I have always said that it is just a number. Age mein kya rakha hai. There’s no reason to shout and make a big deal out of it. If youngsters do the same thing, it’s considered alright. I find it funny when the senior actors are seen with a different lens.”
Having watched the movie herself, the actor asserts that the scene was carried out in essentially the most sleek means. “There was nothing awkward or indecent about it. In fact, I found it very cute and adorable,” she says, including, “Both Shabana and Dharm ji are very senior actors, and also sensible and mature people. They also understand what’s important for a particular film and what’s not. So, if they agreed to do a kissing scene, I’m sure it must have been a well thought-out decision and it reflected on the screen.”
Ask her if she could be open to the concept of kissing onscreen, supplied she finds the script attention-grabbing and Wahab doesn’t suppose earlier than sharing her stance. “No, I won’t do it. Jawaani mein nahi kiya toh budhaape mein kya karungi,” she quips and notes, “To watch someone do it on screen is very different from doing it yourself. But I like I said, I did not see a problem in their kissing scene at all. It didn’t look forced and that’s why, majority of the people liked it.”
