Mahie Gills says that she was more comfortable locking lips with Randeep Hooda in ‘Saheb Biwi aur Gangster’ over Deepak Dobriyal in ‘Not A Love Story’.
Mahie Gill’s kissing acts suddenly seem to have become the talk of tinsel-town. The actress has shot for intimate scenes in both her upcoming films Not A Love Story and Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster which has given Dev.D ‘s girl-next-door the bold actress tag.
“I was always aware about the kissing scenes in advance because they were clearly mentioned in the script”, says Mahie. “But the directors never emphasized on it because the kiss is not the selling point of the film. Both the films are strong on content”.
And was she comfortable smooching in front of the camera, considering she did it for the first time? “Of course I was initially nervous and it felt really awkward. But when you trust your directors to shoot the scenes aesthetically, things become kind of easier”.
However Mahie does assert that she was more comfortable locking lips with Randeep Hooda in Saheb Biwi aur Gangster over Deepak Dobriyal in Not A Love Story . And before you get any ideas, it has nothing to do with the hotness quotient of the costar. Mahie explains, “The smooch scene in Sahib Biwi aur Gangster was filmed towards the end of the shooting schedule. I knew Randeep pretty well by then and we hit it off, so it was kind of easier to film that kissing sequence”.
But while she had already worked with Deepak Dobriyal earlier in Gulaal , it was a different story for Ram Gopal Varma’s Not A Love Story . “I had to shoot for the kissing scene with Deepak on the very first day of the shoot, so I was very nervous”, admits Mahie Gill. “But then I realized at the end of the day, kissing is just like any other emotion”.
