Just as it happens with every leading lady who shares screen with Emraan, it is expected that an intense lip locking would be an essential part of the film's narrative. There was none of it in ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI with Prachi Desai playing up her plain Jane image. However, law of averages means that Neha Sharma, the petite girl who makes her debut opposite Emraan Hashmi in CROOK : IT'S GOOD TO BE BAD, may well share that special moment on screen with Emraan.
"Well, for that why don't you watch the film," teases Neha who is not new to the tinsel world and has actually done a couple of films down South, "What's the fun if I reveal this now itself when the film is still a month away from release. Let the curiosity build up."
While that happens, one can't help but ask Neha something on the lighter note. When she signed her contract for CROOK: IT'S GOOD TO BE BAD, was it a part of the deal and the script that there would be kissing (or perhaps none of it) involved? After all one never knows what transpires on the sets at the last minute.
Laughs Neha, "No, there was none of that actually. Having said that, I wasn't even thinking of any of such things when I was contemplating doing CROOK. In fact as soon as I got the narration from Mohit, I was totally blown over. I was like 'Oh my God, I have to definitely do this film'. The subject with racial abuse as a backdrop and the incidents that follow on screen are so intense, they all combined to make CROOK a racy entertainer. So the presence or lack of a kiss in the script was the last thing in my mind."
Well, it's definitely in audience mind for sure. Come October 8th and we would know if the fantasy here would actually turn out to be a reality.
