The buzz around Vijay Deverakonda’s upcoming film Arjun Reddy is quite high before the release, courtesy the kissing scene that was shown in the trailer of the film. There was mixed response to the lip lock in the film from viewers and from the censor board too. However, actor Vijay Deverakonda says he didn’t have any reservations about the lip-lock sequence in the film as it was very essential from the story’s point of view.
“The film is based on some incidents which happened in a medical college. We have given a fictional twist to some real events. This is the story of my character Arjun Reddy, who is in love and he expresses his affection through a kiss. We have included the lip-lock scene because the story demanded it,” Vijay told a leading news agency.
Vijay also says that viewers would understand why a kiss scene had to be included in the scene. “When people watch the film, they would understand the purpose behind the scene. He kisses her out of love and passion. I don’t understand what’s vulgar about kissing when in a relationship. It’s not like we have shot the lip-lock sequence in poor taste,” Vijay further added.
Arjun Reddy has Vijay Deverakonda playing a medical surgeon and also features Shalini, Jia Sharma, Sanjay Swaroop and Gopinath Bhat. “It’s an emotional love story set against the backdrop of a medical college,” concludes Vijay.
Directed by debutante Sandeep Vanga, Arjun Reddy is hitting the screens on August 25th, 2017.
