During an interview with a leading media portal, Karan said, “Two great veterans just performing with absolute aplomb, no questions asked. I needed it to be a pack. One of my all-time favourites is Abhi Na Jao Chhod Kar and it had to be their song because that’s what she says in the dialogue about Mall Road walks, their re-run, their favourite song. And that became the thematic kind of connection of Rocky (Ranveer Singh) and Rani (Alia Bhatt) as well.”

In a different interview, even an 87-year-old actor opened on the lip-lock scene, he said, “I am hearing that Shabana and I have surprised the audience with the kissing scene, and at the same time they have even applauded it. I think people weren’t expecting it and it came very suddenly which is why it created an impact. The last time I did a kissing scene was in Life In A Metro with Nafisa Ali and at that time too people had appreciated it.” 

Dharmendra further added, “I did not get excited (laughs). We understood it and I realised that it was something that the film required and wasn’t forcefully put in and I said I would do it. Also, I believe there is no age for romance. Age is just a number and two people irrespective of age will show their love for each other by kissing. Shabana and I both did not feel any kind of awkwardness while doing it as it was very aesthetically shot."

In the movie, Shabana Azmi plays Dharmendra’s long-lost lover who reunites with him several years later which sparks a delightful chemistry between the pair. ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani’ is doing wonders on screens with its pure full-package of entertainment ever since its release, which hit the theatres on 28 July 2023.
