"I have really liked bold themes like 'Jism'
and 'Murder' and if I were to choose between 'Mughal-e-Azam' and these two
movies, I would prefer 'Jism' and 'Murder', as they reflect contemporary
reality," Meera, in India to promote "Nazar", told in an interview.
every time she talks about the film, she defends that 'infamous' kiss with
co-star Ashmit Patel.
"I fail to understand why such a hue and cry was
raised over some intimate scenes in the movie. After all such scenes are a
natural part of any modern romantic thriller," said Meera, 24, who is sometimes
described as Pakistan's 'Aishwarya Rai'.

Her latest tirade is about "certain vested interests" whom she
accuses of trying to scuttle the film which has been promoted as the first ever
"After all, Pakistan is full of films
showing all kinds of romance, intimate scenes and a lot of other sexy stuff,
then why all the fuss over Nazar?," asks Meera.
"I am convinced that
there is a certain lobby back home which is out to oppose any move towards
promotion of peace and friendship between the two countries, and therefore they
cannot digest this film either."
But Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf,
said Meera, was on her side.
"General Musharraf has been very
encouraging. I met him once and he is all for anything and everything that could
help to promote peace between the two neighbours."
The actress has
another project coming up with Bhatt.
"My next Indian film is Mahesh
Bhatt's 'Holiday' in which I play a Pakistani girl," she said.
