‘I can’t do kissing on screen,’ Ali Zafar

Ali ZafarPakistani actor and singer Ali Zafar says he is not comfortable with kissing on screen and will never do it in future as well.

“I can’t kiss on screen! I can’t do these scenes for sure,” he said.

“It’s 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,” IANS quoted the 32-year-old as saying.

Currently, he is busy spreading a word about David Dhawan’s “Chashme Baddoor”, a remake of the 1981 comedy of the same name.

Ali also says he wants to take limited, but quality work.

“I don’t want to take too much of work and fill my plate. 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 too and not occupy myself so much that I don’t have time for myself,” he said.

Other stars in the film, set to release on April 5, are Siddharth, Taapsee and Divyendu Sharma.
