Tanishaa Mukerji discussed her on-screen kissing scenes in Neal n Nikki, mentioning that her older sister, Kajol, still refrains from watching the movie.
Tanishaa Mukerji has said that Kajol is yet to watch her 2005 film Neal’ n’ Nikki. In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, Tanishaa said that her sister did not watch the film as it has too many kissing scenes of her and actor Uday Chopra, who was her boyfriend at the time.
Tanishaa on her sister not watching her film
Speaking about the film, which was backed by Yash Raj Films production, Tanishaa Mukerji said if it were offered to her today, she would have done it ‘differently’. She said, “It was too much kissing on-screen. My sister (Kajol) has not watched the film till today. Even I tell my friend’s kids to watch it after growing up a little bit. That conservativeness exists in our country… If today Neil N Nikki would have come to me, I would have offered to play the character differently because you are influencing young minds. At that time, I didn’t get involved in it enough.”
Asked about kissing Uday Chopra on-screen, Tanishaa, who has worked in films such as Sssshhh and Tango Charlie, said, “I was comfortable because Uday and I knew each other. We started dating during the shoot of the film, so it was like I was doing it with my boyfriend, so it became easy.”
