Bollywood's Hottest Kisses of 2011

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster
When it comes to making out on big screen, Mahie Gill is quite a sport.
As a lonely, neglected wife of a Nawab in the critically-acclaimed Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, the actress satisfies her cravings by engaging in some intensive mouth-to-mouth with Randeep Hooda.

The Dirty Picture
With a title like that, it would be foolish to expect anything less than the wolf-whistle worthy smooch between Vidya Balan and Tusshar Kapoor on top of a car in complete public view.

Ladies vs Ricky Bahl
Okay so it's not even close to the sensual, extended kiss they shared in Band Baaja Baaraat but the chemistry between Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma is just as steamy when they get seriously cozy for the second time in Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl.

Yeh Saali Zindagi
Their kisses were the talking point of Yeh Saali Zindagi before release.
One look at the raw passion unleashed between Arunoday Singh and Aditi Rao Hydari, be it in an auto rickshaw or in the bedroom, is enough to explain why.
