A standout amongst the most popular shows on Indian TV ‘Tu Aashiqui’ has hogged the spotlight yet tragically not for good reasons. The show was in news recently for a kissing scene between the 16-year-old lead actor Jannat Zubair and her co-star.
The teenage actor’s parents had expressed their displeasure over the scene. Presently, after a great deal of hullaballoo, Jannat has at finally spoke about the issue. There are rumours about her being replaced on the show too.
Cited Jannat telling a leading daily that even she would not be open to doing such a scene. She stated, “I understand that a leading lady is expected to do certain things, yet I am only 16. I can’t do what a 25-year-old would. A kiss on the hand or head is fine, however what I was said to do was out from put. It was a intense kiss and I wouldn’t have been comfortable with doing it. I have several teenagers following me via web-based networking media and on the off chance that I agree to do something like this, it would set a wrong example. There is appropriate age for everything and still, even then the actor ought to be given the choice to do a specific scene.”
She included, “Most guardians don’t talk against the makers, expecting that their child would be replaced on the show, but not mine. I felt exceptionally proud when my mom stood for me and told the makers that I won’t do the scene. Additionally, it isn’t so much that we raised the issue midway. We had obviously said comfortable starting that I wouldn’t do scenes that didn’t suit my age. I was clear that I’d preferably quit the show than perform intimate scenes with my co-actor.”
