No matter how much sleaze or skin-show Bollywood has moved on with in the past couple of years, nothing can beat the beauty or attraction of a well-enacted kiss. With Sonam Kapoor finally locking lips with a co-star in her recently released ‘Bewakoofiyaan’, we take a look at the first onscreen kisses of Bollywood actresses in their career.
1. Priyanka Chopra
Although Priyanka had two movies in her kitty by the time ‘Andaaz’ released, this movie fetched her a Filmfare Best Debut award. After ‘Andaaz’, both Priyanka and Akshay Kumar created magic together once again in ‘Aitraaz’ in 2004.
2. Bipasha Basu
Bipasha Basu, although a bold actress, maintains that she is very iffy when it comes to kissing scenes. However, the first time she did it, in ‘Jism’, it was very natural for the actress – as she and John were dating at that time.
3. Katrina Kaif
It is hard to believe that the first onscreen kiss this hottie shared was with the Bad Man of Bollywood, Gulshan Grover – but then, ‘Boom’ was a racy debut to make anyway. And the kiss was far from romantic – it was all about the tease!
4. Kareena Kapoor
Kareena was 14-films-old before she had a ‘real’ lip-lock scene in ‘Dev’ with Fardeen Khan. There were romantic scenes in her earlier movies, but not the real deal as far as serious kissing goes. And boy, did ‘Dev’ make up for it! Trivia: she also won the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress for this movie.
5. Kangana Ranaut
Unlike Kareena, Kangana jumped right into it in her debut movie ‘Gangster’ with Serial Kisser Emraan Hashmi. Needless to say, this was one of the most talked about onscreen kisses that year.
6. Vidya Balan
It is ironic that after a steamy scene with Saif Ali Khan in her Bollywood debut ‘Parineeta’, her first real onscreen kiss was in a movie where she played a supporting role with a supporting actor. We are talking about her lip-lock with R. Madhavan in ‘Guru’ – a wet, sloppy kiss in the rain.
7. Deepika Padukone
Like Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone too shared her first onscreen kiss with her then-boyfriend – Ranbir Kapoor in ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’. As far as romance goes, this one right here tops our list. On another note, it also breaks our heart that these two are not dating anymore.
8. Anushka Sharma
Anushka shared her first onscreen kiss with Shahid Kapoor in ‘Badmaash Company’ – and it was certainly a quirky one, as far as Bollywood goes. In a car, in the rain, with ‘Tip Tip Barsa Paani’ playing on the stereo – the scene was very realistic, sans any typical Bollywood romantic or sensual flavor.
9. Parineeti Chopra
Parineeti Chopra might have made her debut with ‘Ladies Vs. Ricky Behl’, but it was in ‘Ishaqzaade’ that she truly arrived. Her chemistry with Arjun Kapoor has been the hottest in her short career – and their kiss just about proves it.
10. Sonam Kapoor
We end the list with the latest entrant – Sonam Kapoor. Not only does she share her first onscreen kiss in ‘Bewakoofiyaan’ with Ayushmann Khurrana (a very worthy one, too!), but she also sports a bikini for the first time. We are loving the new spunky avatar, Sonam!
