Karisma Kapoor's comeback film, Dangerous Ishq, which is being touted as an 'erotic thriller' may just get done without the erotica.
Mumbai Mirror has learnt that the actress, who is back in Bollywood looking like a million bucks has put her foot down when it comes to intimate scenes between her and her co-star in Vikram Bhatt's reincarnation saga.
According to a source close to the Kapoors, Karisma has made it pretty clear in her contract that she won't do any intimate scenes with either of her co actors. And this despite the storyline being about two men passionately obsessed with the actress.
The source informed Mirror, "When Vikram Bhatt approached Karisma, one of her basic anxieties was regarding intimate scenes. Though she is quite excited about playing five different avatars in one film, a lot of intimate scenes in the script were a cause of worry. Vikram's films have always been unabashedly erotic. Dangerous Ishq was no exception."
Apparently, Vikram Bhatt had to edit the lovemaking scenes before Karisma stepped into the role. However, the filmmaker denied the existence of a no-intimacy clause in the contract.
When contacted, co-star Ravi Kissen said, "I play a man who is consumed by passion for her. But it's all done from a distance. There was no question of any intimacy. She is Karisma Kapoor and we had to keep her character's decorum in mind all the time."
Rajneesh Duggal, the male lead in the film added, "Karisma and I play lovers in different lives. We don't have intimate scenes together. Just happy romantic and colourful moments."
