Lesbian kiss sets tongues wagging
By : Meor Shariman
KUALA LUMPUR: The first-ever kiss by two Malaysian actresses will be shown on screens today, at nearly 50 cinemas nationwide.
Locking lips on screen are Nurliana Samsuddin and Sharifah Norazean, better known as Scha, in the horror flick Histeria.
In the intimate scene, Nurliana, who plays a lesbian schoolgirl, is supposed to express her interest for the character played by Scha.
"Scha plays a girl who is confused about her sexual orientation," Nurliana said, adding that the kissing scene was not in the original script.
"Scha and I were only supposed to hold hands to show our affection, but on the set, (director James) Lee told us to kiss."
She admitted that she was shocked by the request and did not want to do it at first. "My first instinct was to say no because I was not comfortable."
She then sat down with Lee and Scha to discuss the scene, with the intention of declining to do it.
"During the discussion, we thought it would be impossible for the scene to be approved by the National Censorship Board.
Lee also explained why he wanted the kissing scene.
"He said he wanted to show the reality of life in an all-girls boarding school.

A friend showed me this article to me with a flourish. Reality of life in an all-girls boarding school? Hahaha. Hamboi seronok kamu eh?
Being a product of all-girls boarding school, of course I will deny, he said.
Well, I can't exactly deny. I can only say, I have never seen any steamy lesbian acts anywhere in school or anywhere else, nor have I kissed a girl. Not that I intend to, never. Aku stret, hokeh!
Reality or not, 'Histeria' is set to open in cinemas today. The trailer macam sangat promising, tapi saya takut ditakut-takutkan so prolly saya tak akan tengok. Haha...
But if you guys do, tell me how it is, oke?
