Senior actor Naresh and veteran actress Amani will be seen in the upcoming film Chandamama Kathalu directed by Praveen Sattaru. Amani and Naresh had previously worked together in a film titled Jamba Lakadi Pamba.
The news is that Amani and Naresh it seems have done an intimate lip-lock scene in Chandamama Kathalu. While talking of the same when the trailer launch of the film Naresh said, “I accepted the lip lock sequence as scene, story and script demanded it. More importantly I got my wife’s permission also. Few youngsters called me on and asked why this romance in this late age. I simply told them, ‘you accept Hollywood actors intimating but deny it as regressive if Telugu actors do. Romance has no age bar, and I still feel like a youngster at 40+.”
The question Is will this intimate lip lock scene down well with the audience? Also,does this mean the actors are aping the west and do not care for the creative sensibility of the local crowd? What is the necessity to even compare the kiss-scene with Hollywood? Agreed, love has no age bar but visual presentation and aesthetic quotient are the most integral parts of our films and sorry Mr. Naresh for the Indian audience is too old-fashioned we guests to accept casually such bold acts by veterans!
