David Dhawan has talked about the kissing scenes where he has to direct his own son, Varun Dhawan. The filmmaker said that there is nothing embarrassing about it as they are all professionals simply doing their job.
Filmmaker David Dhawan has directed his son Varun Dhawan in three movies now — Main Tera Hero, Judwaa 2 and the latest, Coolie No 1.

David was among the most popular filmmakers of the 90s, churning out one rom-com hit after another such as Raja Babu, Saajan Chale Sasural, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, and more.
However, in the new millennium, the definition of romance has changed dramatically and kissing scenes are an inescapable requirement.
Thankfully for David, he doesn’t shy away from including them in his films, even if it requires directing his own son for it.
In a recent interview, David was asked about the kissing scenes he had to film with Varun. He said it not a difficult task as they had a professional attitude while filming it.
What Is There to Be Embarrassed About?
“There was nothing difficult about it because we are very professional people. When I am shooting with him, I don’t look at him or ask him whether we should do this or not.
I tell him that this is to be done. The script demands a kissing scene and so we have to do it. Practically, there is nothing wrong.
The kissing scene is the lightest scene in Indian films these days. It’s very fair when you are doing it professionally, you don’t look left, right, center.
‘Arre yaar mera beta karra hai, sharam aarai hai. Kaae ki sharam aarai hai? (Oh no, my son is doing it, I feel so embarrassed. What are you embarrassed about?)
There is no such thing.
It’s all practical today. Now how the hero and the heroine do it is up to them,” he said in an interview to Bollywood Hungama.
