Priyamani has said that being an actor, it is her duty to justify the story and script. She also adds that it a part of her profession. Moreover, she defends that it is not a vulgar scene. However, this happens to be the first ever on-screen kissing scene for the lead stars Sumanth and Priyamani.
Meanwhile, the actress is busy with Kshetram, which stars Jagapathi Babu and Telugu-Tamil version of Bollywood blockbuster Fashion. She is doing Sudeep starrer Kannada film, which is tentatively titled Vishuvardhana.
Priyamani's kissing scene in Raaj seems to be the only element that has grabbed the eyeballs of the audience and critics in the film. The actress, who is constantly being quizzed about the scene, has justified her lip-lock scene with Sumanth by saying that the script demanded it.
