Romance is an inseparable part of Bollywood’s history and it is quite evident from the number of romantic comedies or romantic dramas that pop out every year out of Bollywood’s popcorn entertainment machine. Mushy, coming-of-age or off beat, romance rules supreme in the Hindi filmdom. Some filmmakers are bold enough to present various shades of romance through their films and in doing so they don’t shy away from showing the physical act of love in all its glory. In its own pseudo liberal ways Bollywood has time and again taken the help of kissing scenes to tell stories of passion and desires. We have a long way to go before we get our own ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ but till then enjoy a list of the best kisses in the history of Bollywood.
15. Kamal Haasan and Rani Mukerji in ‘Hey Ram’
It was the unlikeliest of film to have a kissing scene and that too between an odd couple – Kamal Haasan and Rani Mukerji. However there was one thing in common between both of them and i.e. supreme talent. Their kiss was an organic one, not commercial or a last-minute decision to boost ticket sales. Both the actors displayed the right amount of passion and an appropriate body language, which was enough to take the audiences on a flight of fantasy. Their kiss naturally went on to become the talk of the town and definitely helped in promoting the gem of a film that it is.
14. Mahi Gill and Randeep Hooda in ‘Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster’
There’s an undeniable raw sexual chemistry between them and the steamy scenes in the film are a living proof of that. And the good thing is that they share a lot of intimate moments during the course of the film and the audiences are spoilt for choice. Mahi Gill in her capacity as a cheating wife and Randeep Hooda as a brooding young man who is willing to do anything to climb up the social ladder heats up the screen with their burning desires that hides more than it reveal. Director Tigmanshu Dhulia made sure that their clandestine affair gets ample screen time so that the audiences get what they came for in the first place.
