Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s take on her intimate scenes in movies makes sense – here’s why
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s bold performance in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has been the talk of the town for quite long. The former Miss World’s amazing chemistry with Ranbir Kapoor grabbed a million eyeballs. And while everyone wondered what the pretty lady thought about kissing and intimacy in movies, the Jazbaa actress recently revealed her opinion.In an interview with Filmfare, she said, “When Bride And Prejudice happened, it had a kiss in the script. But I said Gurinder (Chadha) we can avoid it because it isn’t crucial to your story. And you don’t miss it between Martin Henderson and me at all. During that phase, I also did Shabd. There wasn’t a kiss but there was intimacy shown by a female director (Leena Yadav). (Laughs) We filmed it in a way and joked that it could be my show reel to the West. I was okay with projecting intimacy without contact. Because I knew how much a kiss with me would be discussed.”We came to Dhoom, 10 years into my career, by which point a kiss had become a familiar sight. So with the changing times, you consider what could be shocking or not with a sense of responsibility. A social and visual comfort comes with the changing times.
You gauge that keeping your comfort space in mind. When I did the kiss in Dhoom, we decided to treat it in a scene. There’s a dialogue in the kiss. It’s not like there’s a crescendo music and just a kiss. Hrithik and I don’t run into each other’s arms,” she added.So even in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil while there is no kissing scene in the movie, her chemistry with Ranbir is extremely sizzling so much so that her brief role outshines Anushka’s lead character in the film. There were many discussions about Ash taking up this character where she needs to romance a younger actor like Ranbir Kapoor. There were also reports that the Bachchan family is apparently miffed with the actress for giving her nod to this project which required her to seduce Ranbir. However all these rumours were later put to rest.Her intimate scenes with Ranbir were always the hot topic ever since the release of the movie’s teaser and song Bulleya. While we all loved the way Karan has shot them aesthetically, we admire Ash for attempting such a character at this stage. She has definitely managed to take away all the thunder from Anushka and Ranbir and we hope she attempts more such challenging roles in future.
