In the realm of Bollywood, the much-awaited "Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani" has made a resounding impact, captivating the audience and storming the box office. Directed by the illustrious Karan Johar after a hiatus of seven years, the film has undoubtedly marked a triumphant return for the renowned filmmaker. Brimming with all the quintessential elements of a Bollywood blockbuster - melodrama, romance, comedy, and emotions - the movie has struck a chord with moviegoers across the country.

One of the standout aspects of the film is the captivating portrayal of an unrequited love story between two veteran actors, Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi. Their impeccable chemistry on-screen has left the audience mesmerized, and one particular scene, where the two actors share a passionate kiss, has taken many viewers by surprise. In a recent interview with Film Companion, Karan Johar shed light on how he convinced these seasoned actors to shoot the intimate scene.

Contrary to expectations, Karan revealed that he did not face any challenges in persuading Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi to film the kissing sequence. Both legendary actors were not only comfortable with the idea, but they also embraced the scene with absolute professionalism and grace. The director emphasized their willingness to perform the scene with aplomb, without any hesitation or objections.

The love story between Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi's characters in the film holds significant thematic relevance, as it paves the way for the romantic tale of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt's characters, Rocky and Rani, respectively. Karan Johar elucidated how the iconic song "Abhi Na Jao Chhod Kar" became the perfect representation of their love, as it resonates with Mall Road walks and cherished memories shared between the characters. The song not only symbolizes the enduring bond of the veteran characters.

Meanwhile, with the film crossing the Rs 50 crore mark in India, it is evident that the audience has embraced this classic Bollywood entertainer with open arms.
