Setting a new record of kissing in Bollywood, Arunodoy Singh and Aditi Rao broke the 17 kissing record of Mallika Sherawat in the film, 'Khwahish'. The couple kissed 22 times in Sudhir Mishra’s ‘Yeh Saali Zindagi’.
Every time, the duo fight in the film, they patch up with a lip-lock. Arunodoy was last seen in the movie ‘Mirch’ making an intense love with Raima Sen while Aditi Rao was last seen in the film, ‘Delhi 6’ playing Sonam Kapoor’s aunty.
"Aditi and Arunodoy play a young couple based in Delhi. They kiss every time they quarrel. And they quarrel a lot," says Mishra.
At first, the duo was hesitant to smooch but later they agreed. The director believes that a kiss is far more aesthetic and natural expression of love than shaking a leg and dancing around trees. Arunoday Singh is the grandson of politician Arjun Singh, while Aditi Rao is married to actor Satyadeep Mishra.
Aditi Rao Hydari made her acting debut with the 2006 Tamil film Sringaram, in which she enacted the lead character, as a devadasi. The film itself was based on classical dance, being directed by Sharada Ramanathan and produced by Padmini Ravi, two noted bharatanatyam dancers. Hydari was approached and offered the role, after Ramanathan saw her dance performance at a conference for three days.
The film received critical acclaim and fetched several accloades, including three National Film Awards. Her first film to release in theatres, however, was the 2006 Malayalam film Prajapathi, in which she starred alongside Mammootty.
