Nawazuddin Siddiqui opens up about the backlash on his kissing scene with Avneet Kaur
Fans loved the trailer of Tiku Weds Sheru but what shocked them the most was Nawazuddin, 49, and Avneet, 21, shared a kiss. This did not resonate well with the audience due to their real-life age difference. Avneet is 28 years younger than Nawazuddin.
Talking in an interview with India Today, Nawazuddin Siddiqui defended his kissing scene with Avneet Kaur. He said, “We are from the times when romance was something else. We would be in love and be in ‘ishq’ for years. Today, Shah Rukh Khan continues to do romantic roles because the young generation is ‘nalli’. They don’t know romance.”
Talking about love in today’s generation, Nawazuddin said, “Everything today happens on WhatsApp, be it love, or breakup. There is a reason behind this. People who have lived in romance can do romance. Who else will do it?.”
