Ram Kapoor took a bold step when he decided to lock lips with co-star Sakshi Tanwar for a sequence in "Bade Achhe Lagte Hai" and surprised everyone. The actor is happy with his decision and says he will be known
as a trendsetter.
Ram had already set a trend when he appeared in the romantic drama as the lead despite being overweight and with grey hair. In "Bade Achhe Lagte Hai", which runs on Sony, he is married to Priya, played by Sakshi.
Ram said, "I was very open to it. I am a trained actor and it's my job to justify it. The minute I was asked to do that, I was okay with it.
"I have tried to handle the scene in my own way. Before going ahead, I only asked myself, "If I was 40 plus and newly married, would not I kiss my wife?" I got my answer and I went ahead. I am happy that I will be known as the first actor to kiss on TV," added the actor.
In real life, Ram is 39 and is married to actress Gautami who is very supportive.
"My wife is very supportive and she understands that it's my job. But as far as I am concerned, I will do such scenes only if I am convinced about it," he explained.
His resent resolution is to shed extra pounds that he has gained.
