Whosoever ‘refuses’ to lock lips with a heroine (on-screen, of course!) can only blam his ill-luck. Newcomer Rafi, who plays the lead role in an upcoming film titled as Nermugam opposite Meenatchi (a.k.a. Pinky Sorcar of Karuppasamy Kuthagaidharar fame), refused to lock lips with her thereby surprising Meenatchi and the crew members!
Murali Krishna, who made Mirandavan, is the director of Nermugam produced by Rafi on behalf of Hi-Tech Pictures. The script is about seven pairs who go through hell after getting trapped in a dense forest. Pandiarajan, Jinna, ‘Scissors’ Manohar and Nellai Siva form the rest of the cast in the film while Meera Nanda plays the second heroine’s role.
“In a poignant moment in the film, I decided to shoot a lip-lock between Rafi and Meenatchi and got the latter’s permission for it. However, when told about it, Rafi said that he was even ready to jump from the roof of a 10-storeyed building but won’t lock lips with Meenatcahi. The whole crew was shocked,” adds Murali Krishna.
Later, Rafi conceded that he was married happily and only wanted to ensure that his locking lips with the heroine shouldn’t make matters worse for him in his house.
Poor (unlucky) guy!
