Lip-locks scenes were considered as an offence by conservative Indian audience at one point of time. But the people's opinion has changed over the years. Bollywood is the pioneer when it comes to incorporating kissing scenes in India. South films and other regional film industries have followed the footsteps of Hindi films in the recent years.
Today, it is a no big deal for Bollywood actors to be part of lip-lock sequences. Even down South, our stars have started doing it if they are convinced the importance of kiss scenes in films. Nonetheless, it creates a sensation when two stars does a lip-lock scene. And recent Vishal Krishna and Lakshmi Menon's smooch scene is an example of it.
