Kissing a handsome male co-star is easy, but locking lips with a slithery snake with its icky fangs is indeed a big feat. Mallika Sherawat holds the distinction of being the first Bollywood actress to have kissed a snake in her upcoming thriller Hissss directed by Jennifer Lynch, says a media report.
Mallika was expectedly queasy before the liplock with the serpent and it took a lot of egging on from Lynch and many retakes for Mallika to get the kiss right.
“In my previous films, I had to kiss - but they were all humans. Here, I was kissing a snake with Jennifer yelling out to me, ‘Mallika, look passionate, you are the naagin'. There were so many retakes and the snake was rubbery, slimy,” Mallika said in an interview.Hissss will be released in theatres on October 22.
