As Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor take snogging to new levels in the soon to release Aditya Chopra Befikre, we take a look at the Hindi films that were a little too lippy for comfort.
Before Ranveer-Vaani's Befikre kisses, these films were famous for multiple liplocks

1. Khwaahish (2003)
Where there is Mallika Sherawat, expect some sparks to fly. Sherawat made her acting debut in this remake of the 1970 romantic classic, Love Story. The film failed to make a mark at the box office, but Sherawat certainly did. She shared a record 17 kisses with Himanshu Malik to mark her as the first serial kisser in Hindi cinema.
2. Murder (2004)
If the first film was a sign, the second one was in bright neon lights. Anurag Basu's erotic thriller had two of the most popular serial kissers of Hindi cinema together. Emraan Hashmi and Mallika Sherawat got together to snog the daylights out of the audience. Clearly the ploy worked and Murder made its way up the charts to become one of the cult films of the decade. The incredibly melodious soundtrack by Anu Malik helped as well.
3. Aashiq Banaya Aapne (2005)
The 2000s saw a number of films that revolved around some seriously steamy scenes, but this one by Aditya Tiwari really takes the cake. Primarily for two reasons - Emraan Hashmi and Himesh Reshammiya. Aashiq Banaya Aapne saw these two combine their sensual skills for the first time. Although it is Hashmi who walked away with the tag of 'serial kisser', Reshammiya didn't do too bad for himself.
4. Jism 2 (2012)
The good turn of Emraan Hashmi left Hindi cinema in dire need of an actor willing to take sensuality to the next level. Enter Sunny Leone. Taking on the role that Bipasha Basu made famous, Sunny Leone took the sensuality another notch up the scale. Matching her were Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh.
5. Goliyon Ki Rasleela: Ram Leela (2012)
If anyone has an inkling of a doubt about the chemistry between Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, all they have to do is watch Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Raam Leela. The sizzling chemistry between the two was enough to convince Bhansali to cast them in his next romantic epic, Bajirao Mastani (2015). It also established Ranveer Singh as the hottest dude in tinsel town.
6. Shuddh Desi Romance (2013)
Till 2013, few people thought Mallika Sherawat's record of 17 kisses in a film could be broken. When it was indeed broken, it was by the unlikeliest source. Sushant Singh Rajput is quite good looking, but no one had taken him to be the cad like the one he played in Shuddh Desi Romance. The film saw the actor share around 21 kisses with co-stars Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor. Well, there's a breathtaking record for you.
