If there is no kissing scene or romantic scene in Bollywood movies, then the movie seems incomplete. But there was a time when the romance scenes between the hero and heroine were also shot very carefully. In the 1950s and 1960s, there would hardly be a scene where the hero-heroine was shown in close proximity to each other. Showing romance and intimacy was a long way off. In today’s movies, daring scenes happen, but do you know when, how and in which movie the first kissing scene in Hindi cinema was shot?
The first kissing scene was filmed in this movie: Bollywood’s first kiss scene was filmed in the movie ‘Karma’ in the year 1933. The scene was filmed between actress Devika Rani and actor Himanshu Roy.
Bollywood’s first kiss was 4 minutes long: This kissing scene shown in the movie Karma was the longest romantic scene of that time. In this, Devika had kissed Himanshu several times over a period of time. This scene lasted about 4 minutes. This scene was not a lovemaking scene, but the actors in the movie pass out and the actress kisses them to bring them to their senses. And this scene was recorded as the first kissing scene in Bollywood history.
How was the filming done? After this kissing scene from the movie Karma, the movie’s producer and actor was heavily criticized and the movie was also banned. At that time it was a big problem to represent a scene on the screen, but the actors Himanshu Rai and Devika Rani took a big step in doing it. Devika and Himanshu were husband and wife, so they had no problem doing this scene.
Devika Rani was honored with Padma Shri The Dadasaheb Phalke Award was instituted in 1970. This is the highest award for Indian cinema. His first winner was Devika Rani. Apart from this, Devika Rani became the first woman in the film industry to receive the Padma Shri.
