At the recently held Holi party, Nia Sharma and Reyhna Pandit grabbed many eyeballs by kissing each other on the lips while giving media byte. This is not the first time Nia and Reyhna indulged in a kiss. They did the same on the sets of their former show Jamai Raja.
When Reyhna posted that photo, she received strong reactions from the fans. When asked about it by TellyChakkar, the actor replied, ‘Why so much hype about it? When a girl can kiss on cheeks, why not on lips? Nia and I are very different kind of people. We like each other’s positive attitude and fashion sense. We have become very good friends and we enjoy each other’s company.’
When Bombay Times quizzed Reyhna about the recent kiss incident, she replied, ‘After my sister, the only person I kiss is Nia because she’s like my sister. I wonder why so much fuss is being made on this. All I can say is, Nia is my best friend and only friend in the industry and since she was showering love on me that day by being concerned about my late arrival, I thought I would return my love with a kiss. It was just pure love for her and people should not read more into this. It is not a lesbian act at all. If you can kiss your sister on the lips, a girl friend who is very special deserves a similar kiss on a festival day.’
While Nia said, ‘A simple kiss is being made into a big thing. There’s no controversy here for God’s sake, people should understand that. But we can’t control trolls or people who termed this kiss as something else, because both of us know, it was out of pure love for each other. Reyhna is like my cousin. After five years of knowing her, I have a deep bond with her. Also, if I can wish Happy Holi and kiss my Mom on the lips, why not my best friend who is like my cousin? This is only a friendly kiss and I don’t think I could care more about how people interpret it.’
