Stylish Star Allu Arjun, who is now busy shooting for director Trivikram Srinivas' upcoming movie, has said no to lip-lock scenes in his forthcoming movies.

Allu Arjun was seen in some very steamy kissing and smooching scenes in the past. He had a fleeting lip-lock with Deeksha Seth in "Vedam"; with Kajal Aggarwal in "Arya 2" and with Bhanushree in "Varudu". The scenes drove crowds in hordes to theatres.

The actor says he did them because they were crucial for the films. "I've always been against lip-locks and I've said as much even before my wedding. If you notice, the lip locks in my previous films have all been central to the script. So I couldn't reject them," Allu Arjun told The Times of India.

As a hero, Allu Arjun has featured in 13 Telugu movies in a career spanning 13 years and most of them are decent entertainers. They made him popular among family audiences. The reason behind saying no to lip-locks is that he does not want to lose this fan following.

"The kind of films I'm doing cater more to the family audience. I believe kissing scenes hamper the reach of such films. I find it awkward when an intimate scene comes up while watching a movie along with my family. The same holds good for the masses as well. So I realised by doing such scenes I'm actually limiting the reach of my films," Allu Arjun added.

Allu Arjun has once again teamed up with Trivikram Srinivas after "Julayi". He has almost completed the shooting of their second combo film, which is expected to release in theatres in February. But the film, which is simultaneously made in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam languages, has not been titled yet.

The makers of the untitled film, which is produced by DVV Dhanayya, were considering three names "Trisulam", "Hushaaru" and "Jaadugar". Reports suggest that the producers have dropped the first two names as they did not good feedback. So the movie is likely to be titled "Jaadugar".
