During one of the promotions for their movie Dear Comrade, Rashmika Mandhanna was asked about the kissing scenes involved in the movie. Vijay Devarakonda, who did not like the question, interrupted.
I don’t like the word lip-lock. You guys write about objectification. It’s actually kissing, an emotion like anger. When we cry, it is an emotion. when we kiss it is an emotion and it’s not lip-locking. Whenever I read lip-lock, I’m like what the [email protected]#k. I really dislike it,” he said.
He further added, “I think since kissing is an emotion, it should be respected. Kissing scenes are part of the film only if the script demands and is necessary for the right moment in the film.”
“It is not a kissing scene between Vijay and Rashmika. It is between Bobby and Lilly.”
Directed by Bharat Kamma, Dear Comrade is produced by Mythri Movie Makers and Yash Rangineni.
The movie will hit the screens on 26th July, 2019.
