Filmmaker David Dhawan and his son and actor Varun Dhawan have both carved a name for themselves in the comedy genre. The father-son duo have worked together in three films with Coolie No. 1 being their latest release. The film saw Varun romancing Sara Ali Khan and they had intimate scenes in the film. In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, David Dhawan spoke about directing Varun’s kissing scenes.
When asked if it is easy or difficult to direct kissing scenes with one’s son involved, David Dhawan said, “It is not at all difficult. We are professional people and when we are shooting, I do not ask him if we should do this or not, it’s always we have to do this. If there is a kissing scene’s demand, then we do it. Practically there is nothing wrong.”
“Kissing scenes are very casual in Indian films today. And it is very fair. When you do it professionally you don’t look left, right, center. There is nothing to be ashamed of. It is very practical today. We do it professionally, but how the hero and heroine do it, that is up to them,” he added.
