Befikre: Ranveer Singh says he is “fed up of kissing”
Ranveer Singh has never shied away from doing on-screen kissing scenes. He has locked lips with his heroines in almost all his films. He kissed Anushka Sharma in his debut film ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ and also in ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’, he locked lips with Parineeti Chopra in ‘Kill Dil’ and kissed his current ladylove Deepika Padukone in ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’. But his kissing marathon with co-star Vaani Kapoor in the upcoming film ‘Befikre’ has really got the actor tired of kissing.
In a recent interview with Filmfare magazine, the exuberant actor said, “I am fed up of kissing! I need Detox from kissing. I can’t tell you how much I have kissed in Befikre.”
Describing his experiences of doing the kissing scenes, Ranveer said, “Vaani and I got into a set schedule after a point. First, she would kiss from one side, then I would kiss from the other, then the upper lip, then the lower lip, then repeat that round… so that Adi (director Aditya Chopra) could use whatever portions he wanted. We’ve given him all the possible angles.”
Kissing scenes have become commonplace in films these days and it is said that ‘Befikre’ has as many as 23 kisses between the lead actors. Befikre is being touted as one of the boldest films in Bollywood, not just for the kisses, but the steamy scenes and bold acts like Vaani doing a striptease, and Ranveer attending a formal party in just a red underwear with a Playboy logo on it. These are evident in the trailer of the film and the videos of the songs.
‘Befikre’ is slated to hit screens on December 9.
