Mumbai: Actress Neha Sharma, who is all set to make her Bollywood debut opposite `serial kisser` Emraan Hashmi in `Crook`, says, she is not averse to kissing on-screen.

"I am not against kissing on-screen but I definitely do not want to be written about for the number of kisses I have had on screen," she told reporters.

"I was not sceptical about doing a kissing scene (in Crook) but my character did not require it..that was not there on the agenda. The characters of Jay and Suhani are in a
relationship where kissing is not the ultimate thing," Neha told reporters.

On her role in the film, Neha, who hails from Delhi and has studied fashion designing, said, "Suhani, the character I play, is a very simple college going girl, born and brought up in Australia but yet very Indian in her sensibilities and beliefs. She is a strong headed girl. She is a radio jockey and her sole motive is to help Indians who come to Australia."

"I think for a new comer like me it is an excellent role and I consider myself lucky to be associated with the Bhatt camp. I was very much captivated with story of the film," the 22-year-old actress said.

"As I got the narration from Mohit, I was totally blown over. The subject of racial abuse as a backdrop and the incidents that follow on screen are so intense that they all combine to make `Crook` a racy entertainer," she added.
