While filmmakers often scrabble to spark a chemistry between the actors, Zoya Akhtar has contrarily been busy toning down the uninhibited passion-play between Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif in the film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
Call it the comfort of two co-stars or taking one’s role a tad too seriously, but Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif have shot some scenes so sizzling that the director Zoya Akhtar is in a fix whether to include them in the final print. Reason? The film is a story of bonding between three friends (Hrithik, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol). But Hrithik and Katrina’s no-holds-barred chemistry might give it a shade of torrid romance.
Zoya is in a dilemma over whether to retain a gobsmacking three-minute long kiss between Hrithik and Katrina in the film.
Buzz is that the scene is as hot as it gets. It comes at a point in the plot where Hrithik’s character has a tiff with Katrina’s character and drives away in a car. Katrina follows him on her bike, overtakes him, makes him pull over, forces him out of the car and onto the bonnet, and plants kisses on him, with Hrithik reciprocating with equal passion and intensity.
Zoya feels the scene might be too hot for viewing by family audiences and wants to tone it down. Just recently, she had chopped out a good deal of the chemistry of Hrithik and Katrina in the song ‘Ek Junoon’ because the hot scenes of the duo were not going along with the theme of group song.
Guess Hrithik-Katrina are going to be the toast of ZNMD.
