Ritesh denied kissing Jacqueline
Charming guy of Bollywood, Ritesh Deshmukh plays the character of a humble Guajarati boy Rajesh Parekh in Milap Zaveri’s upcoming venture, ‘ Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai’ opposite Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandes.
Character of Ritesh is of a simple but smart modern boy who could not be lucky in love from the very beginning. Though, as the fate would have it Jacqueline Fernandes, who plays the character of Tara, an alien from Venus, has come to earth in search of love and wants Riteish Deshmukh to help in finding the true love. It is this ironical situation that develops gradually in full -fledged love between Jacqueline and Riteish. The director, wanted to show this culmination of love between the lead players through an on- screen kiss, however Riteish was not comfortable with it. Milap Zaveri did pressurize, finally the scene had to be changed to go without that all important kiss as Riteish did not budge from his position.
According to sources though Riteish Deshmukh had never agreed to kiss Jacqueline Fernandes on the celluloid expressly from the very beginning, but it was assumed that he would agree to that in the end as per demand of the story. However to everybody shock on the set, Riteish Deshmukh flatly denied to kiss the Jacqueline for that particular scene.
Considerably, Riteish Deshmukh was gentleman enough to tell Jacqueline that it was not because of her, but in general he had a principle not to kiss anyone on the celluloid and till now he was following that to perfection. Jackie accepted that sportingly. Any how, Riteish Deshmukh and Jacqueline Fernandes had earlier worked together in ‘Aladin’ and so they share a good chemistry.
