How Long Was Aamir Khan’s Kiss?



How Long Was Aamir Khan’s Kiss? 12

This  month, as  director Dharmesh Darshan’s  Raja Hindustani  turns  23 years  old,  it would be apt to  recall  its primary claim  to fame:  Aamir Khan’s kiss with his co-star  Karisma  Kapoor  which qualifies as  the longest liplock in Hindi cinema’s hoary history  of  physical imtimacy.

There are many myths regarding this marathon kiss in Darshan’s blockbuster. Firstly, it was widely believed  that Karisma  Kapoor didn’t want to do the liplock. But Aamir Khan was all for it. Because  the  film demanded it, of course. What did you think? That Aamir Khan likes  to kiss his heroines? Nah! It is just  the call  of duty. It is a sheer chance that role after role has ‘demanded’ a kiss from Aamir Khan with  his co-star in  Qayamat Se  Qayamat Tak, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar , Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, Dil  , etc etc.The  list  is  long and endless.

The list of Aamir Khan’s journey to smoochistan is impressive. But the one in Raja Hindustani stands out for its length. Just like Aamir Khan’s interviews, it goes on and on. Either the director was mesmerized by its intensity  or he fell asleep. Apparently Karisma was taken aback when director Dharmesh Darshan did not call out ‘cut’ to the kiss after a decorous length of time.

We don’t know  i\fs it  was  because Karisma really enjoyed the kiss. But  she never  got lip-intimate  with any of her other co-stars in any other  film.

Incidentally Aamir Khan’s colleagues Salman and Shah Rukh do not kiss on screen as a policy, although SRK did make an exception in Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

Katrina Kaif still can’t believe her luck.
