Unknown to many, Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor were meant to act together much earlier than 3 Idiots. It began with Mani Ratnam’s Lajjo which got shelved, followed by Vishal Bhardwaj’s Mr. Singh and Mrs. Mehta, which too got shelved after the film contained a kissing scene that wasn’t working out. And of course finally now, 3 Idiots where the Khan and Kapoor will come together and yes, they will kiss. In fact, they will not kiss just once but three whole times.
While the kisses have not been publically announced by the makers, they actors have shot all three scenes. The first one is a flying kiss between the couple; the next a cheek kiss; and the last a full out lip-to-lip smooch which will be a part of the climax. Khan has previously kissed older sister Karisma Kapoor, which is still remembered as one the most romantic kisses in Hindi cinema. And of course the perfectionist, Aamir Khan, rehearsed many a time with Karisma before the final kiss came through and was canned.
3 Idiots, which also stars Sharman Joshi and Madhavan, is set to release at the end of the year.
