Filmmaker Karan Johar today said that he likes onscreen kissing scenes as they ensure great box office openings.
"I like watching kissing scenes on screen. I enjoy it. The new generation of actors don't shy away from it. Kissing brings good openings (at the box office) and it is a wonderful thing," Karan said at the trailer launch of movie '2 States' today.
Alia Bhatt had her first on screen kiss with co-star Sidharth Malhotra in her debut film 'Student Of The Year' in 2012 and she has also locked lips with Arjun Kapoor for her forthcoming film '2 States' which features three kissing scenes.
When asked about rumours of "something brewing" between Alia and director Abhishek Varman, Karan Johar said, "This is news to me. I thought there is something going on between Alia and Arjun."
