Telugu movie "Kumari 21F" has three liplock scenes and some adult dialogues, and the lead pair â€" Raj Tarun and Hebah Patel â€" says are that their chemistry is one of the highlights of the film.
The first look posters, teasers and trailer of "Kumari 21F" drop enough hints at the adult content in the movie. Raj Tarun and Hebah Patel, who are busy promoting the film, faced several questions about it and they defended the titillating scenes, saying the script demanded them.
"Kumari 21F" is a coming-of-age love story, with Hebah Patel playing a struggling supermodel. The actress is seen mouthing some adult dialogues in the trailer. When asked about kissing actor Raj Tarun, she says initially she was uncomfortable during the shooting of liplock, but later got mentally prepared for it.
"There were so many people on the sets, so it was obviously uncomfortable. But then, I got myself mentally prepared for this kind of thing in a workshop I had undergone before the shoot. It also helped that I became good friends with Raj Tarun and that made things way less awkward," Hebah Patel told The Times of India.
Raj Tarun added that the younger generation will easily connect to "Kumari 21F".
"The chemistry between the hero and the heroine is very real and today's youngsters will connect to it. Hebah and I have put in a part of us into the characters to make the romance more believable," TOI quoted him as saying.
