But denies that he has!
After his smooch with Vidya Balan in Mani Ratnam's Guru, Madhavan had said that he would not kiss on-screen again.
But in Tanu Weds Manu, the actor seems to have gone back on his words. He has done a liplock with co-star Kangna Ranaut.
In the film, he plays Manu, a guy from London who comes to India in search of a bride and falls in love with a small-town girl Tanu essayed by Kangna.
Explains director Aanand L Rai, "The sweetness of the scene required to be justified with a kiss. It's a funny romantic situation, where Manu falls for Tanu and wants to marry her."
However Maddy maintains, "I have not kissed in the movie!"
Apparently, the unassuming Maddy was apprehensive while shooting. He was uncomfortable puckering up his lips. Kangna, being an understanding co-star gauged his hesitation and made him comfortable.
The scene has Madhavan come to see Kangna before marriage. But she doesn't want to marry him and turns up drunk to put him off. Yet he falls in love with her at first sight and indulges in a liplock!
