Kareena Kapoor’s Reason of Ditching the No Kissing Policy for Arjun Kapoor

It is all about time and situation. It is not a bad thing to change and accept that you have changed yourself with the passage of time. In 2012, after Kareena and Saif got married, they decided not to include the kissing clause in any of their film contracts. But when Kareena’s upcoming films poster got aired, it showed Kareena sharing a lip kiss with the co-star Arjun Kapoor. Kareena has opened about why she didn’t continue her no-kissing policy.

Kareena Kapoor’s Reason of Ditching the No Kissing Policy for Arjun Kapoor

Kareena Explains why she Ditched the ‘No Kissing Polilcy’

Kareena said, “I think too much fuss is being made out of a non-issue. It’s being a little silly to keep on about the kissing bit when there’s much else to talk about. Everybody’s talking so much about it that now I want to clear all doubts. When we make certain statements we may mean something but a few years later down the line, as we grow older, wiser and more mature, our mindset, views and outlook to life changes too. So, if we said something then, we believed in it, today that has changed. When Saif and I got married there was a slight possessiveness and we decided let’s not do some things on screen now that we are married and yes, kissing was one of them. That happens, I think, with most newly married couple.”

Kareena feels that both she and her husband, Saif Ali Khan are at that phase of life when such little things don’t matter as much as they did back then. She said, “A little while ago, when we both sat down as actors and discussed this, we realized the fact that this (kissing restriction) was a bit archaic and our thinking was a bit outdated. It’s old-fashioned na, these days, to say I will do that or won’t do that. So Saif and I decided that we should do things which the character demands. We are actors and we have to go with the flow of the script. Of course, unnecessarily, random kissing which is not required, we won’t do.”

When she was asked if Saif was already aware of the kissing scenes between her and co-star Arjun Kapoor, she said, “I told Saif that that Arjun and I are playing husband and wife, so he was aware that there will be kissing scenes. In fact, he told me that as the film is about a husband and wife, I should not be stupid and put down restrictions. If you are doing the role and putting everything into it, then do it with complete faith and conviction and be true to your director.” She also feels that if Saif will be required to kiss an actress in a film, she doesn’t have a problem with it.

When she was asked that Saif didn’t have a film release last year and that she played the main role in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and now she is having another film to be released soon is ironic or not, she said, “In today’s times, I don’t think it matters if I am working and Saif’s at home or vice versa. If Saif wanted to take one year off and chill, I would love to be the sole bread-earner and support him. So yes, I am totally game for that. In fact, that way I will probably get more time to be with him. Like this year, we have both been so busy with our films that we have hardly had time to meet. There are times that we have to juggle our dates to meet.”

She also believes that there is no place for ego in a relationship. She said, “I believe that love supersedes all. That’s the most important thing. Nothing else matters. No amount of money can buy happiness. That is something people should understand. It’s not about how much money one is earning and who is bringing it in.”
