The actor has said no to kiss actress Trisha in the upcoming Telugu film Kushigaa. The movie is a remake of Bollywood blockbuster Love Aaj Kal (LAK). In the original, Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone shared lip-lock more than once. Even director of Telugu version, Jayant C Paranji wanted to have the same. But the actor has politely denied by stating that it could effect his brother, Praja Rajyam Party (PRP) chief Chiranjeevi's political image.
It may be recalled that when megastar Chiranjeevi launched PRP, a few critics raised eyebrows about Pawan's live in relationship with Renu Desai. Fearing that it might effect Chiru's political ambition, the couple entered the wed-lock on January 28, 2009.
