Bollywood has been notorious for the way it handles the amorous affections between lovers on screen. Shaking flowers, rubbing noses and the famous ‘cheat-technique’ have been used to show the hero and heroine lock lips. Well, not always. As Bollywood gets ‘bolder’, stars have thrown their inhibitions to the winds and locked lips more often now. Let’s take a look at some of the hottest kisses seen on screen in the recent times:
Hrithik Roshan – Katrina Kaif in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
Do opposites attract? In Bollywood films they do. When a free-spirited girl (Katrina Kaif) meets a man who has been living his life according to a set of rules (Hrithik Roshan), in the recently released they seal their relationship with a smooch. The kiss was the tender show of affection between two people who have been drawn towards each other for so long.
Emraan Hashmi – Jacqueline Fernandez in Murder 2
The man needs no introduction. Emraan Hashmi didn’t need an excuse to stick his lips to Jacqueline Fernandez’s in the film. Considering that Jacqueline left us cold with her acting, at least the hot smooches made up for it!
Imran Khan – Poorna Jagannathan in Delhi Belly
We’re just celebrating the fact that Imran Khan finally broke his on-screen ‘good boy’ image, and how! While the final kiss in the car was the more passionate and triumphant one, our vote goes for the naughty kiss between the burkha-clad Imran and Poorna!
Aamir Khan – Kareena Kapoor in 3 Idiots
Aamir Khan NOT kissing his female co-star would be an aberration! We may have exaggerated that a bit, but Aamir is the only Khan who doesn’t mind locking lips with on-screen lover. And unlike other kisses, this one must have kept the feminists happy, as it was Kareena Kapoor who took the lead! (And no, the nose doesn’t come in the way.)
Hrithik Roshan – Aishwarya Rai in Dhoom 2
Much more than the bikes or the songs or the story of Dhoom 2, it was Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai’s much publicised kiss that was making the headlines. Though nothing more than a peck, it was the release of tension between the two thieves that made the kiss even steamier.
Shahid Kapoor – Kareena Kapoor in Jab We Met
In Jab We Met, after a quick change of personalities, Kareena Kapoor finally gets her spunk back and gives Shahid Kapoor a well-deserved long kiss on his lips. And that too in front of her fiancée! Add to that their off-screen chemistry and you have a smoking smooch!
Emraan Hashmi – Mallika Sherawat in Murder
Kissing in Bollywood went mainstream thanks to Mallika Sherawat and Emraan Hashmi’s unabashed lip-locks throughout Murder. The sizzling couple probably hold the record for kissing for the longest time in a mainstream Bollywood film!
John Abraham – Bipasha Basu in Jism
Hot off screen couples tend to make even hotter on-screen lovers! John Abraham and Bipasha Basu couldn’t keep their lips off each other in the film.
Aamir Khan – Karisma Kapoor in Raja Hindustani
Remember what we said about Aamir Khan? Aamir Khan and Karisma Kapoor locked lips with him in a passionate rainy scene… another milestone as far as Bollywood kisses are concerned.
