heroNewbies Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty’s mentor, superstar Salman Khan, is being too protective of his proteges. The actor, who is launching the duo in his home production, has reportedly removed a scene from the movie, where Sooraj and Athiya shared a lip-lock.

Director Nikhil Advani reveals, “It was just a peck… A brush of the lips… But even before I could see it, Salman did, and insisted on editing it out. His argument was that in all these years, he had never kissed on screen, so there was no reason for his ‘children’ to lock lips.”

Nikhil further added saying that the remake of the 1993 movie, does not demand any physical intimacy sequences. So there was no further discussion on this topic between the director, the producers or with the actors and the writers.
