Ali Zafar puts no-kiss clause before signing films

AlizafarOur very own actor and singer Ali Zafar got up, close and personal with actor Aditi Rao Hydari in London, Paris, New York, however, he says kissing on screen is something he would never do as it makes him uncomfortable.

“I can’t kiss on screen! I can’t do these scenes for sure. It is more of a personal choice, I don’t think I will feel comfortable. Even before signing a film, I tell them [producers] that this is one thing that I will not be able to do,” said Zafar.

The 32-year-old who is married and has a son is busy spreading a word about his latest stint in film-maker David Dhawan’s Chashme Baddoor, a remake of the 1981 comedy of the same name.

Having done successful films like Tere Bin Laden and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Zafar said he wants to take limited, but quality work. “I don’t want to take too much work. I want to do films that excite me and with people who are nice to work with. I also want to spend some time with my family,” he said.
