|Gautham Karthik and Thulasi Nair in Kadal|
From the trailer of Kadal, it is evident that a passionate smooch scene is part of the movie. Further digging in to the making of this scene, it is heard that the scene which is said to last only for 10 seconds, was shot for 4 hours as the heroine Thulasi Nair was very much concerned about shooting the scene in the presence of huge crowd and film technicians.
Director Mani Ratnam, the perfectionist he is, after vacating his technicians, had to go for several takes to bring the best out of the pair for the scene. Kadal, being one of the most expected movies of the year, is advertised in all media with the release date as February 1st.
