Soha's image makeover.

BOLLYWOOD'S oomph divas have competition from unlikely quarters.

Two ' non- glam' beauties -- Vidya Balan and Soha Ali Khan -- are set for sexy makeovers in upcoming films.

Soha will share a couple of on- screen smooches with Bollywood's ' serial kisser' Emraan Hashmi in Kunal Deshmukh's Tum Mile . Vidya is ready to chuck her traditional image with several steamy scenes, including a kiss, and some bold dialogues in the Vishal Bharadwaj- produced Ishqiya . Soha says she didn't have problems kissing Emraan the first time. But, she admits feeling awkward during the second smooch in the film.

" At first, I was a little reluctant about the second kiss because the script demanded just one. But when Kunal explained to me the need for another kiss, I agreed to do it.

It has been shot in good taste," said Soha.

Soha went a step ahead with a steamy music video for the Dil Ibadat track.

Though Soha was initially apprehensive, Deshmukh convinced her.

Vidya is equally intrepid about her bold scenes. " Why wouldn't I do the scenes when a bound script given to me before the film went on the floors justifies them? I had no issues doing the kissing scene," she said recently.

Interestingly, the buzz goes that Vidya and her Ishqiya co- star Arshad Warsi were both quite nervous canning the smooch scene in the Abhishek Chaubey- directed film.

Kissing of course isn't new for Vidya. She had earlier puckered up with R. Madhavan in Mani Ratnam's Guru . In Ishqiya however Vidya's role is bolder, and she has to mouth quite a few expletives too.

Vidya on her part maintains that she would be the last person to create a ruckus over a scene if it is required.

This clarification came after it was reported that she had stormed off the sets of Ishqiya before the kissing shot.

Coming back to Soha's kiss, Emraan believes Soha was initially reluctant to do the shot owing to miscommunication.

" I think she was correct in her reluctance. Finally, she understood the need of the scene," he said.

A few months ago, Soha had created waves with a bold makeover for a photo shoot for a glossy magazine. The actress flaunted her figure in hot pants and a skimpy outfit.

" I was apprehensive because I didn't want anyone to take the shoot the wrong way. The shoot is not intended for an image change or making a statement.

It's certainly bold yet tasteful, in my opinion," she had said.
