Reacting to the kiss, the actress told Zoom, "I never thought it would create such a fuss. People are laughing and cheering when we do the kiss. While shooting it was never an issue. It is true that I haven’t kissed much on screen before. But who wouldn’t want to kiss a man as handsome as Dharmendra?"
Shabana Azmi also revealed how her husband, veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar, reacted to their kissing scene. "Oh he was not bothered. But what bothered him was my rowdy behaviour. Throughout the film, I was applauding, whistling, cheering and shouting. He was like, 'I don’t know this woman sitting next to me.' I went insane with excitement," she added.
