director Ayan Mukherji to let him kiss her on the cheek while she
was shooting an item number with him for the upcoming film Yeh

Madhuri recently shot for an item song with Ranbir in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, slated for release on May 31. "She (Madhuri) was my first love and my heart broke when she got married. I was happy when I got the opportunity to dance with her and see her," Ranbir said at a promotional event of the film.
In a candid confession, the actor said he had to "bribe" Ayan Mukerji in his own way to let him kiss the actress on the cheek.
The item song Ghagra is choreographed by Farah Khan. Heaping praises on the dhak dhak girl, Ranbir said, "She is sincere, passionate and talented. It was great working with her. She is wonderful."
Ranbir who visited the sets of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa last year for the promotion of his film Barfi, also broke into a jig with the actress.
Interestingly, Ranbir's father Rishi Kapoor has worked with Madhuri in various films.
