Most Awkward Kiss award goes to...
Here is a review of some of the most awkward and wooden liplocks in 2012
Gone are the days when on screen kisses were portrayed with the crossing of two flowers. Bollywood films now have kisses galore. But sometimes thanks to their bad timing and overzealous performances from actors, the kisses have somewhere got lost in translation...
Raaz 3: Bipasha Basu-Emraan Hashmi
Bips’ seemed to have taken Emraan’s serial kisser rep too seriously. Saw how she pounced on him in Raaz 3? Almost like she were eating carbs after a long protein diet. Poor Emraan, his response looked a bit forced. Not good for the reputation you know!
Jab Tak Hai Jaan: Shah Rukh Khan-Katrina Kaif
Will you slap me if I kissed you? SRK asked Katrina in Jab Tak Hai Jaan. If Kat had known it’d be so tepid for the King of Romance, she would have. His rather nervous avuncular liplock with Katrina Kaif prompts us to wonder if he was thinking of Kat’s ex beau Salman Khan all the time.
Ekk Deewana Tha: Amy Jackson–Pratiek
The couple started dating on the sets of this film and viewers had expected a lot of so-called chemistry between the actors. Unfortunately their kiss was rather thanda, much like the actors’ acting skills. Maybe the kiss was responsible for the eventual break-up?
London Paris New York: Ali Zafar-Aditi Rao Hydari
No use being experienced! In her debut movie Yeh Saali Zindagi, Aditi broke all liplock records co-star Arunoday Singh. Some 22-odd kissing scenes. But for her next co-star Ali, their film was the first where he kissed an actress. And boy was he unprepared!
Cocktail: Saif Ali Khan-Diana Penty
The Nawab is not new to locking lips on the big screen. But his smooch scene with the newcomer Diana Penty turned out to be quite sloppy. Diana looked nervous, Saif looked nervous. Maybe Bebo was on the sets supervising the shoot, huh?
