It was just yesterday that Sonakshi Sinha said she does not like to be kissed in films. Now Kriti Kharbanda, who is making her Bollywood debut with horror film “Raaz Reboot,” says kissing on-screen was a tough task for her.
Kriti who has worked in South had inhibitions while filming intimate scenes. “My first kiss was with Emraan Hashmi and I was extremely scared. I was saying to myself ‘I don’t know how am I going to do this.’ It freaked me out. I was very uncomfortable about it because I was doing it with a stranger,” Kriti said during an interview.
Directed by Vikram, Bhatt, “Raaz Reboot” is the fourth film in the horror film franchise “Raaz”.
The 27-year-old actress made her acting debut with the Telugu film “Boni” in 2009 before doing her breakthrough role in romantic comedy “Googly”.
Kriti says when “Raaz Reboot” was offered to her, she was a bit apprehensive as the character in the film was in contrast to the roles she had done in the past.
“Initially I had a lot of inhibitions. I have been very active in South, especially in the past three years, and the image I have there is of a sweet-girl-next-door. But ‘Raaz’ was in a different role. In the film, I have an ex-lover, I also have a husband, I get possessed, I have to kiss on-screen. I did not know how I was going to spook the living daylight of my audience,” she said.
The actress, however, was not bothered about the “serial kisser” image of her co-star, Emraan, and in fact credits the “Azhar” actor for starting the trend of kissing scenes in Bollywood.
“His (Emraan’s) image didn’t make a difference to me. I feel he started the trend of kissing scenes. Today there is not one Hindi movie without a kissing scene,” she said. – CINEWS
