All eyes on Ajay-Kareena love scene in 'Omkara'Jul 24, 2006 Arpana
New Delhi, July 24 (IANS) An intimate love scene between Ajay Devgan and Kareena Kapoor in Vishal Bharadwaj's "Omkara", which releases Friday, is raising a lot of interest.
"There is a three-four minute love scene between Ajay and Kareena. Though it is an erotic scene, it has been shot very aesthetically. The scene is part of a montage for the song 'O sathi re'," said a source who has seen the film.
Those present on the sets said that Bharadwaj, who has reportedly filmed the scene "superbly", had to reassure a hesitant Kareena that it would be done very tastefully.
"Kareena was not comfortable doing such an intimate scene. But when she saw the monitor after giving the first shot, she agreed to do the entire scene without any hassles," the source told IANS.
In Shakespeare's "Othello", on which the film is based, the protagonist suffers from an inferiority complex due to the beauty of his lover. Bharadwaj, therefore, is said to have wanted someone who looked beautiful even without makeup, and found Kareena to fit the bill perfectly.
She plays a Brahmin girl who leaves her family for Ajay, a half-Brahmin and the chieftain of outlaws.
"Kareena had said that Ajay is the heart of the film and her character - Dolly - is the soul of the film. And surely the film belongs to Kareena, Ajay and Saif Ali Khan and it will be tough to decide who will walk away with the credits finally," added the source.
A special screening was recently organised for the cast and crew of "Omkara".
