Neena Gupta opens up on her first kissing scene

Speaking with Instant Bollywood, Neena shared, “Many years ago, I did a serial with Dilip Dhawan. It had the first-ever lip-to-lip kissing scene on Indian TV. I couldn’t sleep all night. It wasn’t like he was a friend, we were acquaintances. He was good-looking, but that doesn’t really matter in these situations, because physically and mentally, I wasn’t ready. I was so tense, but I convinced myself to go through it.”

The veteran actress added, “It’s like some people can’t do comedy, some people can’t cry on camera. I drilled it into my head, and I did it. As soon as it ended, I rinsed my mouth with Dettol. It was so difficult to kiss somebody who I don’t know.”

The serial Neena Gupta is talking about is Dilip Dhawan’s Dillagi. It was her first ever kissing scene onscreen.
