Be it an Aamir Khan or a Shah Rukh Khan, a Hrithik Roshan, a John Abraham or an Abhishek Bachchan, or for that matter an Akshay Kumar, have at one point or the other during their filmy career have used kiss as a tool on the screen to convey and connote romance. Even Big B had to do it in the autumn of his career in BLACK. But Salman Khan is an exception, even though he has been involved in one of the most romantic moments that Hindi cinema has ever created to convey an emotion of romance, but he has never succumbed to the occasion.

Well, it seems to be case actually, and by following and adopting this as a mantra of his life, Salman Khan has followed in the footsteps of the romantics of the past, of the likes of Dev Anand, Shammi Kapoor etc., who oozed romance and were romantic to the core but never used a kiss as a tool to convey romance on the screen. Even one of the greatest romantics of Hindi cinema Raj Kapoor, may have relied on the display vital body parts on the screen as a device of titillation, but never took the help of a kiss to convey romance.

Is it owing to the fact that kiss is considered to be a very private thing to be shared between two individuals and not to be shared on the silver screen. Well, the argument might sound arcane, but this has been the reality of Hindi cinema. Or is it a manifestation of the fact that romance has not been given precedence in the process of growing up and therefore kiss has never been considered a by-product to express and stem it, and Salman Khan has been inspired by this maxim. This being the maxim, lets recreate those moments in the films of Salman Khan where a kiss could have been a natural corollary in the manner in which the scene was developing:
