While Ranveer Singh was sure that his lip-lock with Deepika Padukone with Ram Leela would be the best and the longest in the history of Bollywood. But looks like Sushant Singh Rajput is all set to snatch the trophy, albeit unknowingly. In Sushant's next movie Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, the actor will be seen sharing a long lip-lock scene with co-star Swastika Mukherjee. If insiders are to be believed then this will be the longest on celluloid. And what's surprising is that Sushant was unaware of the scene before it was shot. Before the shot, Dibakar had vaguely told Sushant that the scene required a peck on his lips, but on the other hand he had briefed Swastika at length about the scene because he was keen to capture Sushant's shocked expression without any rehearsals.
Speaking about the scene Dibakar says, "The scene was more than the kiss. It was about deception, intrigue and murder and I needed that something extra that element of surprise that throws everyone off. But we had over-rehearsed it. The takes ended up being just like the rehearsals there was no surprise! After six takes, eight takes, it was still the same. I was worried and then it struck me. I took the Swastika aside and told her, 'Kiss him before he can say anything - and we won't tell him. Throw him off guard'. Sushant is a highly prepared actor. He does NOT like surprises sprung at him. We started shooting the scene as rehearsed, and then she did it. Kissed him on the lips, no holding back. The set froze, Sushant froze and then he recovered. The scene after that was highly electric because both of them were now watching each other warily not knowing what the other would do and that mistrust, suspicion and tension worked." It worked for the scene, but Sushant did have much to say to Dibakar once the shot was canned. Says Dibakar, "Once I called cut, Sushant didn't mince his words and expressed his displeasure. But when he saw the shot, his good humour returned. But for a moment we all had our hearts in our mouth. Don't try this at home."
