According to unconfirmed reports, Kamal Haasan has done a hot scene with yesteryear actress Rekha and Mallika Sherawat for his film Dasavatharam. While a kiss scene with Mallika would not make much news, what is raising the heat is the report of a special kissing scene with Kamal and Rekha. If this is true then it would become on of the biggest draws for the film. Wait and watch for more info on this one.
Tamil cinema fans have been so privileged to see lip locks onscreen. The Smooching scene in the Kamal-Rekha film Punnagai Mannan is well remembered. After the film did well, Kamal Hassan made sure that he locks lips with his actress in quite a few of his movies. But this has also been misused many a time, with the filmmakers trying to use it for generating curiosity and for publicity purposes.
One memorable kiss in the recent past is between Keerthi Chawla and Vijay Chiranjeevi, the son of Jaguar Thanga - the stunt master turned director. Now we will see that trying to be replicated twice onscreen. Ninaithadhai Mudippavan will have Keerthi Chawla and Jai Akash engage in a hot kiss for about a minute. Another film Malarinum Melliya, will have its co-stars Varshini and Vignesh in a lip-lock.
In a press conference held by the director of the film PS Selvaraj, he said, "When the shoe was ready to be taken, Vignesh suddenly kissed her. We caught her by surprise and hence caught her real reaction onscreen. It worked out well. Later, in a few more scenes, the actress co-operated with the unit."
The one and only Rekha and the brilliantly talented versatile actor Kamal Hasan have been presented with Lifetime Achievement awards. The awards were presented to them by Ficci in Mumbai on Thursday.

The secret of her beauty continues to baffle everyone. She is much in demand by filmmakers even at this age.
Finally Oscar Ravichandiran, the producer of Kamal's eagerly awaited magnum opus Dasavataram, has confirmed the audio release date and has distributed invitations to film fraternities to come for the event. He has started inviting the VIP's personally for this grand gala event for the first time ever in Tamil film history which will be held on Friday April 25 at Nehru Indoor stadium in Chennai.
Stars like Hollywood's number one action hero Jackie Chan, Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan, Kollywood's Ilayathalapathy Vijay, Malluwood's megastar Mammootty and the films leading artists Kamal Hassan, Asin and Mallika Sherawat will be present on the specially designed stage. It is expected that Superstar Rajini will pay a surprise visit to the function at last minute.

Meanwhile, Oscar Ravichandran showed Karunanidhi the films trailer at Four Frames Theatre who is said to have been impressed with Kamal's awesome performance and asked him in doubt, "Are all those roles really done by you? Unbelievable and amazing..."
According to the producer, The CM, after watching a song 'Kallai Mattum Paarthal Kadavul theriyadha...', (written by Vaali and rendered by Hariharan) praised Kamal with a warm hug and kind kiss. A special still which will form the background at the audio launch shows Kamal chained and tied to an idol of Lord Vishnu and thrown into the sea.
Katrina Kaif made an exception in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and kissed Hrithik Roshan in a sequence. However, not again!
The actress, like the other two Khans Salman and Shah Rukh Khan has made it clear that she would never kiss on screen, come what say. The clause doesn't waver even for 'good friend' Salman Khan.
When a situation for a kiss arose in Kabir Khan's Ek Tha Tiger both Sallu and Kat said a clear no. Says a source, "Kabir Khan had convinced Katrina for the only kissing scene she has done so far in New York. He was sure she would see how important it was. But with both Salman and Katrina adamant on the no-kiss policy there was no choice but to drop it."
Katrina admits she has broken her no-kiss clause for ZNMD. "Yes, there's a fleeting kiss with Hrithik. It was something that had to be done. But that apart, my stand on kissing remains unchanged," she says.
In fact, the actress is in two minds about buying the rights for the 1998 Drew Barrymore rom-com The Wedding Singer because a long kiss is integral to the plot. "I love that film. But the kiss, No!" Kat says.
Bollywood sex bomb Mallika Sherawat knows how to stay in the public glare all the time. She took Bollywood by storm and stunt everyone with her 'dare-bare' attitude. Now, she is all set to heat up South Indian cinema too. Well, the news is doing the rounds that she is going to smooch with Tamil cinema smooching king Simbu in a new film. Sexy actress Mallika first appeared in Tamil film with Kamal Hassan in Dasavatharam.
She also had done an item number in a Kannada film. She is coming back to Tamil with a difference. It is said that hot actor Simbu is roping her to his next film. He is also planning a kissing scene with her. In fact, Simbu is the Emraan Hashmi of Kollywood. His lip kiss with Nayantara in Vallavan created a lot of furor not long ago. Now, he said that Mallika has agreed to his lip kiss proposal. Well, Simbu seems to be ready for another kiss and so too is Mallika. Let's wait and watch!
It's no co-incidence that Madhavan's first screen kiss is for his mentor Mani Rathnam's Guru.
The surprise is that it should have been with an actress who has a very propah image…Vidya Balan!
Even more surprisingly, Mani Rathnam for whom Maddy broke his no-kissing code of conduct has given his protégé the briefest role of his career.
Laughs Maddy, "That's okay..I did it with my eyes open…I mean the film, not the kiss," laughs Maddy from Toronto where Guru was premiered at the posh Elgin theatre. "The response here has been overwhelming," he enthuses.
And Maddy? "Well, even my wife Sarita thinks I've a small role. But what the heck! I did it for my mentor. As for the kiss, I did exactly what was in the script."
Hadn't he promised his wife he's never kiss any of his heroines on screen? "Well…that's okay. She saw the kiss and liked it. You can't say no to Mani. And frankly I didn't want to. There're some things one has to do."
Was he uncomfortable doing it? "Well I'm not a seasoned screen kisser. But I'm an actor. I'm supposed to do what I'm asked to."
One thing is for sure. The Guru kiss will be Maddy's first and last screen smooch.
Years ago, a kiss in Umesh Mehra's Guru between Mithun Chakraborty and Sridevi had created a furore.
2008/3/31 11:57:48 Kamal Haasan’s magnum opus Dasavatharam took over two years in the making. The big budget film is produced by Oscar Ravichandran and directed by KS Ravikumar. Kamal Haasan is playing 10 different roles in the film.
The ten different roles are very convincingly portrayed by Kamal Haasan. It would be almost impossible to recognize Kamal is some of these getups. Some top make up artists from Hollywood were flown in to work on the make up for Kamal Haasan.
Kamal Haasan sat patently for hours together everyday to undergo elaborate makeup. Kamal said jokingly that this was the first time in he over three decade old film career where he spent more time behind the camera the in front of the camera!
“I actually baby sat Hrithik for three months,” says Rekha. A good friend of Pinky (Rakesh Roshan’s wife), Rekha changed his diapers and bottle fed the superstar. No wonder the bond between the two is magical when it comes to being a mother-son or grandmother-grandson combo. “Hrithik epitomizes everything precious in a man, be it as a son, lover or as a husband. This is a very strong statement I am making. Hrithik talks about his wife being perfect. I don’t think his wife can be perfect without Hrithik. This kid is a complete human being,” Rekha adds like a proud parent.
Hrithik is said to be a perfectionist when it comes to his work. So, does the granny have a viewpoint on that too? “There isn’t a jealousy, pride or any other negative traits. As for being hard working, every actor has to work by virtue of being in such a competitive profession. But Hrithik works hard not to better anyone, but himself. He was born to work hard. And look at the end result,” beams Rekha with pride-n-satisfaction. There are many sides to the phenomenon called Rekha. It is great to see such a soothing side of her personality. Hey…Looking forward to seeing you guys together in the superman series of ‘Krrish’.
Salman Khan attempted to break a record for most kisses received on the hand in a minute on Guiness World Records -- Ab India Todega.
The previous record for the stunt was set by an actor from Japan who received 87 kisses.
To break this record, Sallu was joined by 25 young girls who were thrilled to have the opportunity to kiss the superstar. They managed to kiss him 108 times in a minute, breaking the Guinness world record!
Maybe Salman should now star in the male version of Katrina's famous song -- Zara Zara Kiss Me Kiss Me. Wot say?
2006/10/30 13:22:47 The actor seems destined to kiss on screen. So, what about his promise to his fiancee?
Ram Kamal Mukherjee
Emraan Hashmi has done it again. The actor seems to have forgotten his promise to fiancee Parveen (that he would never kiss on screen) and will be seen kissing leading ladies Geeta Basra (Dil Diya Hai fame) and model Sayali Bhagat in his forthcoming film The Train.
Directed by Raksha Mistry (of The Killer fame), the film will see Emraan locking lips once again. Not too long ago, Emraan had made public his decision of not doing any kissing scenes on screen because his fiancée does not approve. In an earlier interview he even admitted, "Since Parveen gets embarrassed I think it's high time I stopped kissing my heroines."
Emraan even asked director Anurag Basu to edit a kissing scene in Gangster, just before the film released. In fact, he refrained from kissing in Dil Diya Hai and The Killer. Ironically, both films bombed at the box-office. Emraan attributed this to his so-called abstinence and decided to return to what he does best — kissing.
And now, the serial kisser is back. He has done kissing scenes in The Train.
When contacted, Raksha Mistry confirmed the news, saying, "Yes, Emmy has done a kissing scene in my film The Train. I don't understand why there is so much hoopla made of kissing and lovemaking in films. I feel sorry for Emmy. He had promised himself that he won't repeat the kissing act but when we narrated the subject to him, we told him the kiss is an integral part of the script, as the film is about an extra-marital affair. He did ask me whether it was absolutely essential, and when I said 'yes', he agreed. I asked him if he had any reservations since he is about to get married soon, but he was quite cool about it."
She elicited a thunderous applause from the guests present.
The very beautiful and gorgeous Rekha stepped out on Friday night after a self-imposed hiatus from the public eye, in true divaesque style. Dressed in black, boots et al, she could very well launch a thousand ships of her own, a la Helen of Troy!
As she stepped on stage to receive an award celebrating her beauty, she elicited a thunderous applause from the guests present. But naturally, she’s Rekha... the one and only. And one of the guests, excited on seeing her, said something aloud which she didn’t quite catch and she asked him to repeat what he’d said. To which he said, Good Evening and Rekha laughed throatily and said in her trademark sensuous voice, Oh I heard beautiful.
You know, I am always being asked how is it that I am so beautiful. I owe it all to my Amma, my mother, and it is thanks to the genes I inherited from her, that I am beautiful if at all. But more than that, I feel that the values that she brought me up with which I follow till date are what make me truly beautiful.
There, she just told everyone her best kept secret or did she? I want to be alone is essentially Hollywood’s most glamourous legend, Greta Garbo’s line, and Rekha has been adhering to that in her life too. But we wish not. She’s a Re’ of light.
