It's hard out here for a hottie

LOL! Looks like Hrithik's hottness finally got him in trouble...

Apparently, Bollywood Boyfriend #1 and Aishwarya Rai have caused a bit of a stir with their lip-locking in Dhoom 2. I know, it's hard to watch two such ridiculously beautiful people share a passionate moment and then go home to your ordinary looking spouse.

In the name of ordinary looking folks everywhere, there's a fella in Madhya Pradesh who filed a criminal case against the pair accusing them of obscenity. Personally, I think he needs to admit that this has quite a bit more to do with hotttttness than it does with actual offense.

Geez! As if Aish didn't have enough on her plate with her tree marriage and all...

BTW, I've seen the kiss--yeah, YouTube!--and it's only medium hott. Maybe it's more offensive in context. Can't wait till Thursday!!!
Story from Reuters.

Um, yeah. And on to the real reason why Hrithik's married to Sussanne and not me:

“While doing the scene, all I knew was that I had to answer the challenge set by Sussanne.

She said, ‘If you are going to do the kiss, make sure it’s the best g*ddamn kiss in the world.’

Eventually, both Sussanne and I loved the kiss.” Who was on his mind during the lip-lock? “You think of (the characters) Aryan and Sunheri, that’s it,” he states. [Hindustan Times]
I, on the other hand, would be far more inclined to take K-Jo's advice and lock Hrithik in the closet...

Here is a link to MissionBAS funny take on kissing in bollywood movies. Seems this was an answer to German newspapers claiming "No Kissing in Indian movies". And this doesn't include some tamil movies that i am aware of that has kissing. As anyone can see our fundamentalists in India are totally blind to kissing on screen till Aish and Hrithik starts kissing. T-Hype i think you might be onto something here.

i agree -- the kiss was overrated. it was kind of slobbery and gross.

Yeah, doesn't quite live up to the hype.

T-hype, you beat me to this...I wanted to blog about the case, but with so many posts coming up on it, I will now divert my energies to comment on them :), sorry about taking up your comment space.
The case is ridiculous, in fact you missed out on the main hilarity of it: (to quote from the news item: http://indiafm.com/news/2006/12/04/8336/index.html)

The case was filed in the court of judicial magistrate first class R. K. Batham by advocate Shailendra Dwivedi under Sections 292 (vulgarity) and 509 (derogatory to women) of the Indian Penal Code.

As Dwivedi’s complaint has it, women have felt offended after watching the scene as it has promoted vulgarity in the society, especially among the youth.

I am happy to know that I am not the only one laughing at it, so is Amit Varma, check out:

I disagree Naina, did not find anything gross about the kiss, I found it passionate and beautifully done, apt for that scene.

Not related to the post: Link talks about how an Indian correspondent talked his way out of a delicate with the help of Raj Kapoor and Hrithik. http://www.rediff.com/us/2003/apr/15iraq.htm

oops.... that is delicate situation.

"derogatory to women"?!? I'm with you, that is very strange! I'm offended that Hrithik isn't a better kisser! He looks so good but his game is low. Maybe needs some lessons. I prefer to think that he was just trying to show some respect to Abishek by not kissing Aish like she looks like she should be kissed.

cool article!
