Meenakshi Sheshadri reveals she had a KISS SCENE with Sunny Deol in Dacait; reveals what happened further
Mumbai (Maharashtra): Indian cinema has evolved with a lot of diverse and unprejudiced topics being discussed in films. There was a time when mainstream cinema reflected the orthodox society with sexuality being a topic only for independent and some daredevil filmmakers. Today, it is part of the character arc of many path-breaking roles. The journey here has faced a lot of complications, including the very famous scandal involving the then-chairperson of the Censor Board (CBFC), Pahlaj Nihalani who was accused of moral policing and demanding irrational cuts.
Meenakshi Sheshadri, timeless beauty and one of the leading Hindi actors in the 1990s were at the top of her career at a time when even a kiss was a Big No in films. She starred in several hit movies and gave some thrilling performances. The veteran actor recently opened up about her career and her experience as an actor in Bollywood. Revealing a piece of shocking information, Meenakshi divulged that there was a kiss scene in her film, Dacait that starred her opposite Sunny Deol. But unfortunately, it was chopped from the final cut due to the Censor Board. She said, “With Sunny, I had a kiss in Dacait, which happens just before a song. I give full credit to Sunny for being very professional about it and making me comfortable too. But the Censors cut that.” It seems that the audience was robbed of a stomach-fluttering romance due to some unwanted obligations.
During the interview with TOI, Meenakshi also recalled her fan moment while shooting with Sanjay Dutt and Amitabh Bachchan. “With Sanju, I started on a fan-moment note. I had seen him shooting for Rocky with Tina Munim. I was very young then. I found him very handsome and cute. And when my chance to work with him in Inaam Dus Hazaar came, I did tell him about that shoot. As for Amitji, I think I will never forget the aerial shots we took during the song Jaane do jaane do, mujhe jaana hai in Shahenshah.”
