Gone are the days when the hero and heroine used to hide their faces behind flowers and badminton rackets every time they wanted to kiss. But surely, times have changed and kissing scenes have become a common thing in nearly every movie.
So today, on the occasion of Kiss Day, we bring to you the most romantic kisses of Bollywood over the years that have changed the perception of on-screen romance.
1. Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor:
One of the most adored off-screen Jodi, who never hit it off on-screen, made millions go 'Aww' with their sensuous kiss in 'Jab We Met'. While the kiss became a hit, the couple parted ways after that!
2. Arshad Warsi and Vidya Balan:
Certainly the most passionate kiss in recent times. Their smooch in 'Ishqiya' became the talking point of the town. The kiss had passion, aggression, romance and the required oomph level to make it the best lip lock of that year!
3. Aamir Khan and Karishma Kapoor:
This smooch had shocked the Indian audiences. A kiss that lasted for nearly 8 minutes under a tree in the rains! While some roles make an actor's career, the kiss made Karishma's career a hit one.
4. Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif:
SRK's first on-screen kiss after 20 years in the industry was with Katrina Kaif. Their kiss was romantic and decent without going wild but keeping the romantic mood intact. More than their lips, it was their body language and their eyes that emoted the love.
5. Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif:
Imagine being out on a road trip with your friends and meeting that special someone when you are least expected to fall for anyone. A person, who accepts you for the way you are and comes all the way just to bid you a Goodbye with a romantic and passionate kiss. Well, that's what Hrithik and Katrina's kiss was, to describe in words!
6. Vinod Khanna and Madhuri Dixit:
Their long and passionate kiss was another reason why we fell for Madhuri Dixit. She showed her bold yet sweet side with that romantic kiss in the song Aaj Phir Tum Pe Pyaar Aaya Hai.
7. Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone:
Wanna know how amazing an on-screen chemistry can get? Wanna know how sizzling and bold two actors can get? Wanna witness the most passionate and romantic kisses of recent times? Watch Ranveer and Deepika's numerous kissing scenes in 'Ram Leela'.
8. Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone:
In certainly the most romantic and entertaining love story of 2013, we saw Ranbir and Deepika pair up once again not making us feel that the two had broken up long time back! Their kiss was innocent, sweet, sensuous and a moment that every couple in the crowd could connect with. After all, first kiss is always a special one!
9. Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt:
Though Alia Bhatt has been locking lips with almost all her co-stars, the kiss in 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania' was the cutest of them all.
10. Emraan Hashmi and Jacqueline Fernandez:
And when it comes to kisses, how can we miss out on the serial kisser of Bollywood!? Certainly the hottest kiss in the list. Two hotties of B-town Jacqueline and Emraan set the screen of fire with their smooches in 'Murder 2' with the romantic tunes of 'Haal-E-Dil' playing in the background.
So here's wishing all the couples a very Happy Kiss Day.
