Popular filmmaker David Dhawan has directed his son Varun Dhawan in films like Main Tera Hero, Judwaa 2 and the latest, Coolie No 1. All these films are of rom-com genre and youth oriented. Some intimate scenes in such films won’t come as a surprise to the audience.
The actors also don’t shy away from giving such shots. But the question is, how comfortable it is when father and son are both present on the sets.
In a recent interview, David Dhawan was asked that if he feels weird directing a kissing scene on Varun Dhawan. To this, he replied, “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.”
He further 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? There is no such thing. It’s all practical today. Now how the hero and the heroine do it is up to them.”
