Filmmaker Karan Johar today said that he likes onscreen kissing scenes as they ensure great box office openings.

"I like watching kissing scenes on screen. I enjoy it. The new generation of actors don't shy away from it. Kissing brings good openings (at the box office) and it is a wonderful thing," Karan said at the trailer launch of movie 2 States.

Alia Bhatt had her first on screen kiss with co-star Sidharth Malhotra in her debut film Student Of The Year in 2012 and she has also locked lips with Arjun Kapoor for her forthcoming film 2 States which features three kissing scenes.

When asked about rumours of "something brewing" between Alia and director Abhishek Varman, Karan Johar said "This is news to me. I thought there is something going on between Alia and Arjun".
