And it is here where, Ayushmann talks about his moment of kissing a male actor on the big screen for the very first time. When Kapil out of curiosity asked Ayush his experience, he without any embarassemnt shared his feelings. Ayushamann mentioned that as an actor they have to be ready for such situations, where they have to kiss anyone anywhere. An actor has to be prepared for a character’s demand. However, above everything, it was a necessity to incorporate in kiss in the film, so as to normalise this sensitive topic.
He added that despite the Supreme Court has decriminalised Section 377, the LGBTQ community is still looked down upon and all this considered as a taboo. He went on to say that many still feel a homosexual relationship isn’t normal. So, to make them believe and relate to the concept, it was important the kiss.

On the other hand, Jitendra revealed that he posts his shayaris on his social media account under the a fake handle of Gulzar Saab, as he considers him as his inspiration.
