Bollywood stars and their first on-screen kiss
Ajay Devgn will be seen kissing on screen for the first time in his upcoming film ‘Shivaay’ which he is directing as well. The actor-filmmaker, who made his debut with ‘Phool Aur Kaante’ in 1991, has never done a lip-locking scene in his career span of 25 years. Reportedly, the love story between the characters of Ajay and Erika Kaar plays a crucial part in the narrative of the movie. Hence, the kiss was important and it has been shot aesthetically as well.
Here’s a look at other Bollywood stars and their films in which they locked lips for the first time:
Shah Rukh Khan: Very early in his career, Shah Rukh Khan had stripped down for an intimate and bold scene in 1993 film ‘Maya Memsaab’, which was later deleted from the film. Almost two decades later, King Khan had his first on-screen kiss in 2012 film ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ with Katrina Kaif. According to the actor, he did the kissing scenes as the script demanded it and also because it was directed by the late Yash Chopra whom he greatly respects.
Katrina Kaif: While Shah Rukh had his first on-screen kiss with Katrina, the actress locked lips in her debut film itself. Katrina shared her first on-screen with Bollywood’s bad man Gulshan Grover in 2003 film ‘Boom’. It was quite hot and bold scene, after all, the film was a racy one.
Deepika Padukone: The tall and leggy actress kissed on-screen for the first time in her second Bollywood film ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’. She shared it with her then boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor, so it looked absolutely natural and the ex-couple created a magical scene. The two have locked lips in their other films in which they starred together.
Ranbir Kapoor: ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ also happens to be the first film in which Ranbir Kapoor shared his first on-screen kiss. But, it wasn’t only with his ex-girlfriend Deepika, he kissed the two other actress in the film – Minissha Lamba and Bipasha Basu.
Ranveer Singh: Ranveer Singh, who will be seen giving a tough competition to Bollywood’s ‘serial kisser’ Emraan Hashmi in his upcoming film ‘Befikre’, got kiss in his debut movie itself.

The two actors also shared a short-lived romantic affair after the film, but continue to be good friends.
Anushka Sharma: Anushka had her first on-screen kissing in ‘Badmaash Company’, her second film. It was a brief scene with Shahid Kapoor inside a car while it was raining.

Vidya Balan: Another first on-screen kiss in the rain was of Vidya Balan in Mani Ratnam’s 2007 hit ‘Guru’.
