Unlike in the past, where the media make news out of a peck on the check, the passionate kissing between Abhay and Sonam went unnoticed. Abhay must be disappointed because his statement that Sonam was the best kisser failed to give the expected publicity. In fact, Emraan Hashmi not kissing in his film makes bigger news than Abhay-Sonam kiss.
Abhay, who had earlier actresses like Neha Dhupia, Mahie Gill and Neetu Chandra on screen, was all praise for the first-time kisser Sonam. He said that she was the best kisser out of the actresses he had kissed.
Aisha, produced by Rhea Kapoor and directed by Rajshree Ojha, is an adaptation of Jane Austen"s Emma. It is releasing today.
Time has changed. Today, it looks like a film is incomplete without a kissing scene. So, the news of Abhay Deol and Sonam Kapoor sharing a passionate kiss in their film Aisha doesn't come as a surprise. What is surprising is the way the media handled it.
