Hrithik & Katrina set for one long kiss

Bollywood's reigning diva Katrina Kaif is all set to make her onscreen smooch debut with none other than heartthrob Hrithik Roshan .

Director Zoya Akhtar has shot a two- minute steamy kissing scene, being touted as the longest lip lock in Bollywood so far, for her upcoming biggie Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara . Hrithik and Katrina have been cast opposite each other for the first time in Zoya’s film, though the two superstars have posed for the cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine in the past.

But director Zoya is reluctant to reveal details on the kiss. “ I don’t want to discuss details because we are still shooting the film. All I can say is that whatever we have shot is integral to the plot. Everything has been filmed beautifully and the actors look great together on screen,” she says.

Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara , Zoya’s second film after Luck By Chance , also stars her brother Farhan Akhtar along with Dev D duo Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin. A large portion of the film has been shot in Spain where the unit drew the flak of animal activists when the three male actors shot a bull- running sequence. According to reports, Katrina has also done some daredevil bike stunts in the film.

While this will be Katrina’s maiden on- screen kiss, Hrithik has mastered the smooching art. He shared his first onscreen kiss with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the 2006 blockbuster Dhoom 2 and smooched Mexican beauty Barbara Mori in his dud home production Kites earlier this year. If Hrithik and Aishwarya were quite uncomfortable while doing the kissing scene for Dhoom 2 , Katrina’s condition was no different when she was informed about the kissing scene by the director.

Says a source close to Katrina: “ Initially, she was hesitant to doing the kissing scene with Hrithik. She wasn’t very enthusiastic about the idea. However, the director managed to convince her in the end.” Sources on the set of the film claim that despite her initial reluctance Katrina seemed quite comfortable kissing Hrithik when the scene was shot. The actress was very professional and co- operative all along, they add.

The kissing sequence happens at an important moment in the film where Hrithik Roshan ’s character looks into the eyes of the heroine and bids her goodbye without saying a word. It is only then that the girl realises how much she loves him and runs up to him to seal her affection with a lip lock. So far, the longest kiss on- screen was shared by Aamir Khan and Karisma Kapoor in Raja Hindustani . It lasted for about a minute.

Whether Katrina manages to strike chemistry with Hrithik in Zoya’s film remains to be seen. One thing is sure, though — they will set a new record for Hindi films when it comes to puckering up.
