Actor Saif Ali Khan has expressed his disinterest in kissing scenes in Bollywood movies.

The 43-year-old who has locked-lips on-screen in films “Hum Tum” and “Salaam Namaste,” says that Indian films can do without love scenes because it doesn’t “suit” them.  He made this statement during an interview when asked about his views on a comment Kareena Kapoor had made before their marriage. The actress had said that the couple had made a commitment not to do on-screen kissing scenes anymore. When asked, the actor responded: “No. I wouldn’t even say that’s in place. I don’t think it’s a function of being in a relationship. I have done films like ‘Salaam Namaste’ a long time ago. In India, it is not required in our films to have kissing scenes. I don’t think it’s required to be overly sexual. It doesn’t suit us.”

He continued to say that his current wife Kareena has also smooched in a few movies and that “it doesn’t work on-screen.”
Nobody looks comfortable doing it. And slowly, slowly reports filter through that when somebody has tried to be a little risque, that people don’t seem to like it. I think the kind of cinema we have, we are a hypocritical culture. You can talk about things, you can see Hollywood movies, but if a kiss or a lovemaking scene is presented in a way that doesn’t make you uncomfortable, it’s much easier for everybody to watch,” the actor told TV host Anupama Chopra.

Saif feels really strongly about no on-screen kissing.  Could it be that he doesn’t want Kareena making out with other male actors? Is this some possessive behavior leaking through the superstar facade?  Guess we will have to wait and see if the newly weds live up to their promise.

It is reported that Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone has refused an offer in a Bollywood production.

The Rocky star first made his Bollywood debut in the film Kambakkht Ishq back in 2009 starring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor.  We are told the reason behind his rejection was because it clashed with his current shooting schedule for the movie, Escape Plan.

The thriller will also be starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, and is set to release on October 25th.

Karishma Kapoor turns Radio Jockey

The Bollywood diva is all set to take on the largest multimedia platform in India — the radio! According to sources, she will be dishing out tips on fashion, beauty and other women’s topics. The actress said, “Having worked in movies and also television, I was extremely keen to try a new medium- hence I decided to do radio. The Indian media scenario is constantly evolving and radio is the perfect medium for me to be closer to my fans than ever before. I am very excited about my radio debut. I will share some of my personal tips along with trends that I have observed and share them with my listeners. I am confident that my fans will continue to support me as I undertake this new journey and will enjoy the show even further.”

So this isn’t just about her switching it up. She feels she will be able to connect with her fans more. Well, I would have to agree with Karishma. Being a Radio Jockey myself, it does help you connect with people on a more personal level and you definitely have more of a voice than you would in other areas of entertainment. We wish Karishma the best of luck on her new journey!

Who would make the perfect Bond girl for Shahrukh Khan?
