|Guess what was Salman Khan’s reaction after he learned of a seduction scene with Jacqueline Fernandez in Sajid Nadiadwala’s film Kick?
We’re sure you know how Salman Khan abstains from getting intimate with his heroines on screen. Kisses and intimate scenes are a strict no-no, forget slurpy smooches or bedroom romps. It’s a code he set at the start of his career and has unwaveringly stuck to even after 25 years in Bollywood.
Was he going to change that for Kick? No!
The movie, to be made by Sajid Nadiadwala, apparently has a scene where Salman Khan passes out on a couch and Jacqueline Fernandez seduces him. Given the onscreen canoodling and fondling heroes and heroines nowadays indulge in, the scene in Kick wasn’t outright explicit, but Salman wasn’t…ahem…kicked about it.
The 47-year-old superstar who is still single felt that the scene would look vulgar on screen and therefore asked Sajid Nadiadwala to scrap it. Needless to say the producer-director disposed what Sallu proposed.
What was Jacqueline Fernandez’s reaction (did she feel slighted, or was she indifferent?) is anybody’s guess.
Interestingly, Salman Khan’s archrival Shahrukh Khan, too, has a similar no-onscreen-intimacy-and-kiss code but he chucked it out while romancing Katrina Kaif in Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
Sallu, in that sense, seems a man of firmer resolve.
