On Christmas this year we saw the release of Coolie No. 1. The movie was a sequel to the film of the same name released in 1995. The first movie starred Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in the lead roles. The sequel, on the other hand, witnessed Sara Ali Khan and Varun Dhawan. Both the movies were directed by Varun’s father David Dhawan. David has directed Varun in three movies so far. They are Main Tera Hero, Judwaa 2 and the latest, Coolie No 1. He has been among the most popular directors of the 90s who gave rom-com hits like Raja Babu, Saajan Chale Sasural, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan and more. However, in this era kissing scenes are a must in romantic movies. Filmmaker David Dhawan has well-adapted to this new norm and does not shy away from including them in his films. David also has a heart to cast Varun, for kiss scenes.
David Dhawan Shares Thoughts on Directing Kiss Scenes Starring son Varun Dhawan:
In a recent interview to an entertainment portal, he opined on the same. He told Bollywood Hungama, “There was nothing difficult about it because we are very professional people. When I am shooting with him, I don’t look at him or ask him whether we should do this or not. I tell him that this is to be done. The script demands a kissing scene and so we have to do it. Practically, there is nothing wrong.”
David added, “Kissing scene is the lightest scene in the Indian films these days. It’s very fair when you are doing it professionally, you don’t look left, right, centre. ‘Arre yaar mera beta karra hai, sharam aarai hai. Kaae ki sharam aarai hai? (Oh no, my son is doing it, I feel so embarrassed. What are you embarrassed about?) There is no such thing. It’s all practical today. Now how the hero and the heroine do it is up to them.”
