In an interview to Deccan chronicle, Alia confirmed, "There was a kiss in the film with Fawad . When we did the scene, it was decided that we would cheat-kiss. Still, every time I would go near his face, he would flinch."
"I had to keep reassuring him I wouldn’t compromise his chastity," she added, explaining the Pakistani heartthrob declined due to his cultural backdrop.
Fawad had also refused to kiss Sonam Kapoor in Khubsoorat. He had then justified it by saying, "I didn’t want to hurt the sentiments of my core audience; I think I need to respect their feelings. A lot of my audience would be quite offended if I suddenly started losing my inhibitions."
