Having garnered enough appreciations for her bold performance in Lipstick Under My Burkha, actor Aahana Kumra‘s recent comment against filmmaker Prakash Jha sent the industry and fans in a shock. Alledging that Jha made her uncomfortable while filming an intimate scene with co-star Vikrant Massey in the film, directed by Alankrita Shrivastava, Aahana’s statement created an instant buzz until she finally cleared the air recently.
In an interview with IANS, Aahana was quoted saying, “My director Alankrita Shrivastava made sure that all the intimate scenes were shot in a closed set with few people around. Prakash Jha happened to drop by while I was shooting with my co-star Vikrant Massey. Since I had never shot an intimate scene before that, it was difficult to get in the right zone.”
Elaborating her point further, she said, “Since he is also a director, he had a suggestion regarding the scene, but I wanted to hear it from my director, Alankrita. He was on the set for a while, and after he left, we continued to shoot and also implemented his suggestion.” Though the actress was not comfortable sharing the actual remark that was made, Aahana felt that her initial comment was “blown out of proportion”.
