Salman Khan Refused to Kiss Alia Bhatt? Here is the Truth

One of the rumours doing the rounds is that the reason for Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s parting ways over Inshallah was because of a kiss!

Ever since Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela  Bhansali, who were due to work together in Inshallah, after a period of 19 years, parted ways there has been many speculative articles as to why the creative separation occurred. One of the bizarre theories for the misadventure doing the  rounds is that there  was a  kiss in the script that Salman refused to do. However, a source close to Sanjay Leela Bhansali laughs off the kiss theory. “Firstly, there was no kiss to begin with. And even if there was, Salman would have known about it from the start.”

It is a commonly known fact in the Indian entertainment industry that Salman doesn’t kiss or indulge in any overt intimacy with his  leading ladies. “Every filmmaker knows that Salman doesn’t kiss on screen. Having said that, if Sanjay Bhansali could  get Amitabh  Bachchan to kiss Rani Mukherjee in Black  as it was the dire need of the script, then why would Salman not agree to a kiss if  the need arises? However there was no kiss at all in Inshallah. This is just a wild stab in the dark,” says  the source.

Salman Khan’s no-intimacy clause with his heroines remains even if the lady with the puckered lips is Katrina  Kaif. It so happened that Tiger Zinda Hai, the sequel to Salman’s 2012 Republic day blockbuster had a  sequence of intense intimacy between Salman and Katrina. “Everyone felt this just once Salman would break his no-kissing code because the sequence is vital to the plot and  also because ….well, it’s Katrina. But no. Salman  refused outright. Director Ali Abbas Zafar tried his darndest to convince Salman . However nothing worked. The scene has been dropped,” says a  source in the know.

Salman has over  the years repudiated onscreen intimacy to the point of being considered a prude. He  not  only refuses  to indulge  in  any physical proximity with his  leading ladies he  also won’t play grey or negative characters. Years ago, he turned down Abbas-Mustan’s Baazigar for the character’s bent towards moral deviancy. It went on to be milestone in Shah Rukh Khan’s career. But ask Salman if he cares.
