There is no kissing scene in Mausam." Sonam Kapoor had said that. But Mumbai Mirror has just found out, that there is indeed a passionate lip-lock between the actress and her co-star Shahid Kapoor in the said film.
And the man who made this kiss possible was none other than Shahid's father, the director of the film Mr Pankaj Kapur. Looks like the actress who had once denied the existence of any such embrace in the project, couldn't refuse the director's command.
Initially when Pankaj Kapur had informed Sonam about the kiss, she had put her foot down. Her refusal had sparked off some real drama on the sets of the film. Kapur had even called up her father Anil Kapoor in desperation. But the actress refused to budge even then. She had even told sections of the media that there was no kissing scene in the film.
That however, is a thing of the past. Much like her days of not being too friendly with her co-star Shahid. With the thaw in their relationship, even the kissing scene seems to have worked itself out. In fact, when contacted Sonam told Mumbai Mirror that she and Shahid do have a kiss in Mausam. When asked about her initial refusal regarding the scene, she said, "Says who?" So was the scene diluted? "No. Jitna hona chahiye tha, utna hi rakha gaya," said Sonam.
Sonam surely seems to have had a change of heart. Mausam producer Sheeta Talwar said, "Sonam is a fantastic actress. She had a very comfortable equation with Pankaj and Shahid. If there were any aspersions whatsoever, they were cast aside during the course of the shoot."
Sonam will be the fourth heroine who Shahid is locking lips with- Kareena Kapoor (Jab We Met), Priyanka Chopra (Kaminey) and Anushka Sharma (Badmaash Company).
