ALTBalaji's thriller Cartel is undoubtedly one of the most exciting and anticipated web series of the year. Everything related to the show is making a huge buzz on the internet. It's aesthetically shot kissing scenes too. Popular TV actor Krishna Kaul, who is currently seen in Kumkum Bhagya, plays an aspiring actor Jawed in the series. He had to step out of his comfort zone for the series.
Krishna had to lock lips with another man for the series. Although the details of the scene are not yet known, Krishna recently opened up about the scene. ALSO READ: Kundali Bhagya Actor Krishna Kaul On Bigg Boss: 'Mujhe 1-2 Week Mein Hi Bahar Nikal Diya Jaayega'- EXCLUSIVE
"So when I was told that I needed to kiss a man, I was reluctant. I wasn't sure if that would go with the image of my character in Kumkum Bhagya. They came back to me to narrate the script. And when they did, I was bowled over by the script. My character was someone I've not played before, so it was more exciting for me. It still took me some time to realise that I need to kiss a man on a show. After talking to a few friends, I realised that 'Hey, it's a show and I am an actor. I can't deny these things. So I agreed to the show. When the day of that scene came, I was nervous. I still wasn't sure. When we did the take, I was quite hesitant, and it came across on the screens. Soon we did a take or two and I got comfortable. I was very chill then. Because then, after a point, I became the character and forgot that I was Krishna Kaul. Eventually, it was all a fun experience for me," he told Spotboye.com.

Krishna also revealed that his mother was shocked when he told her about the scene. "Interestingly, I hadn't told my mother about it. The moment I told her that I had kissed a man she was scandalized. Then I clarified that I have only kissed a man on screen for a show, and she was further amazed. She couldn't believe that I kissed a man in front of the camera. However, I am sure once she watches the show, she'll understand."
Cartel is one of the most ambitious projects from ALTBalaji's kitty. The countdown for the show, which stars Rithvik Dhanjani, Supriya Pathak, and Tanuj Virwani in pivotal roles has already begun. The show is slated to start streaming on ALTBalaji and MX Player Gold on August 20.
