The ‘huge’ South actress has locked lips a couple of times in Telugu films.
Fun fact for the makers of her next Hindi film, Do Lafzon Ki Kahani: The kiss in your film is not the first Kajal has done in her career!
Kajal Agarwal will be seen playing a blind girl who falls for a boxer, played by Randeep Hooda, in her next Hindi film, Do Lafzon Ki Kahani. In the film, there is an intimate kissing scene between the two actors, which the makers claim is her first! The scene had Randeep grabbing Kajal and smooching her, which apparently shocked the actress as she was unaware this would happen, so the makers claim! Well, don’t you know this is actually punishable by law?
As for her shock, the director of the film has this to say, “Well, I do remember Kajal had told me that she does not do kissing scenes on screen, as she is a huge south Indian movie star, and this would impact her career in south movies. But lemme tell you there was no intention to malign her or kiss her out of force, but it was the emotional moment between two lovers as per the script, and I generally prefer actors doing scenes impromptu, so Randeep followed the emotional quotient of the scene, and made a go at it. Sure it did take Kajal in a shocking zone, and she did back off calling for a cut, but later on once I had explained to her the significance of the lip lock, she surrendered herself to the script, and went on to do the scene with all the passion she could put in.”
First of all, South stars have no qualms with kissing scenes, and such scenes ‘don’t’ impact their career. And secondly, it’s entirely FALSE that this is her first kissing scene. It is her first kissing scene in a Bollywood film, but definitely not the first kiss of her career. In fact, I can think of three other Telugu films, where she had locked lips with her heroes.
Mahesh Babu in The Businessman
In this Puri Jagannath film, Kajal Agarwal was seen in a passionate lip-lock with the Telugu superstar, Mahesh Babu. The film was a huge hit down South.
Allu Arjun in Arya 2
Kajal Agarwal did her first onscreen kiss in with Navadeep in one of her earlier films in Telugu.
