Woh hi tune samjha and aisa tere dimaag mein atka! Arrey pappi chhod kar koi sawaal puchho, acting bhi ki hai logon ne iss picture mein. (Didn't you have a girlfriend in a long time? I said if you want to see it [kissing scene], you will have to pay for it. I never said you will have to pay only for that! That's what you assumed. Why do you have to ask only about kissing scenes? People have also acted in this film you know)."
