To the best of our knowledge, Katrina Kaif has refused to lock lips with her heroes onscreen. And she has also resisted wearing a bikini so far.
However, the grapevine is buzzing with news that she has actually made an exception for Zoya Akhtar's " Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara", and gone ahead and locked lips with Hrithik Roshan for the first time ever.
Even as the speculation continues, we've managed to get some intimate shots of the two good looking people in Bollywood – Kat and Duggu. The photos imply that there is an elaborate kiss sequence, but of course the producers, Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar, director Zoya and the stars are all tight-lipped about it.
There's news that while Zoya was editing the song "Ek Junoon", there was a lot of pressure on her from the actors to tone down the chemistry. Apparently Duggu and Kat wanted the sizzle element to be brought down, and they even suggested that Zoya make "Ek Junoon" a group song instead of a romantic number.
There was also the additional dilemma of this very passionate sequence between the lead actors. There is a moment in the film when Kat, who is seen riding a motorcycle, chases Hrithik and then draws him into a tight clinch that leads to a kiss. Says a source, "It is an extremely important and sensual scene in the film. It is one of those hot sequences. But the makers are not sure what to do. The actors want it toned down, but Zoya is still debating what to cut and what to keep. So whether the kiss makes it to the screen or gets lost at the editing table is still a suspense." The source adds, "That one passionate moment is crucial as it triggers the romance between the Kat and Duggu. However, the makers are still in two minds about it."
Those who have seen the rushes of the movie say that the chemistry between Katrina and Hrithik in the "Ek Junoon" number is enough to scorch the screen. Let's wait and watch!
