Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan seems amused to hear about her alleged “no-kissing policy”.

It was earlier reported Kareena had promised her actor husband Saif Ali Khan after their marriage in 2012 that she won’t do kissing scenes in films.

But the poster and trailer of her upcoming film “Ki and Ka” show her and Arjun Kapoor kissing.

When asked if she was deviating from the “policy”, Arjun jumped in to say, “You have a life insurance policy na? All other policies can go to hell.”

Kareena said, “I read that there was this policy... I don’t know where it came from.”

The film’s director, R Balki, said he failed to understand the fuss about kissing on screen.

“I don’t understand why kissing is made a big deal,” he added.

In “Ki and Ka”, 30-year-old Arjun plays the role of Kabir, an IIT graduate and a ‘house husband’, and Kareena, 35, plays the character of Kia, a career-oriented woman.

During the trailer launch of the film, Kareena and Arjun were asked to re-enact the kissing scene for photo-op.

Kareena looked at Balki and said, “You will get me divorced.”

Arjun said, “I don’t think I will get entry in Pataudi household.

Kareena, however, planted a peck on her co-star’s cheek and also quipped, “Arjun is a good kisser.”

The film is slated to release on  April 1. PTI KKP KRK


Big B won’t be very happy being called my lucky mascot: Balki

Mumbai, Feb 15 (PTI) Director R Balki has worked with Amitabh Bachchan in all his films so far but he feels it is unfair to call the megastar his ‘lucky mascot’.

Balki directed Bachchan in “Cheeni Kum”, “Paa” and “Shamitabh”. In his upcoming film “Ki and Ka”, Bachchan and his actress wife Jaya make a special appearance.

“I don’t think he will be very happy about it (calling him lucky mascot). He is not a mascot he is Amitabh Bachchan.  He is country’s greatest actor,” Balki replied to a poser at the trailer launch of “Ki and Ka”.

Balki also did not wish to talk about the guest roles of the Bollywood’s veteran star couple in the Kareena Kapoor-Arjun Kapoor starrer.

“There is special appearance of him and Jaya. I don’t want to talk about it... The essence of what we want to say is in this film is there in that scene,” Balki said.

The romantic-comedy will release on April 1.
