In an exclusive interview with a news portal, Dharmendra has opened up about shooting that scene. He said, “I am hearing that Shabana and I have surprised the audience with the kissing scene, and at the same time they have even applauded it. I think people weren’t expecting it and it came very suddenly which is why it created an impact. The last time I did a kissing scene was in Life In A Metro with Nafisa Ali and at that time too people had appreciated it.“

The actor went on to share what was his reaction when he heard the scene. He told, “When Karan narrated the scene to us, I did not get excited (laughs). We understood it and I realised that it was something that the film required and wasn’t forcefully put in and I said I will do it. Also, I believe there is no age for romance. Age is just a number and two people irrespective of age will show their love for each other by kissing. Shabana and I both did not feel any kind of awkwardness while doing it as it was very aesthetically shot.”
Not only this, Dharmendra also took to his twitter handle and clarified about the scene. He tweeted, “Friends, R and R ki prem kahani Film 👍 … please see the film…..and inform .. ..how successful is your Dharam in playing his role …. at this age….”
