Despite actors suggesting that they are all professionals when it comes to being a part of intimate scenes,some of the actor’s parents are not comfortable with the thought. A similar incident happened with actor Zoya Afroz, when her mother objected to a kissing scene in her upcoming film, where she is working alongside actor Himansh Kohli.

According to a source, it was the director who wanted to incorporate a kissing scene in the film, but after Zoya’s mother “ was not ready to listen” , he had to do away with it.

“The director believes that incorporating a kissing scene in a film is lucky for him. He wanted to shoot an intense kissing scene with Himansh and Zoya which was also included in the script. But Zoya’s mother, who accompanied her to the set everyday didn’t allow the director to shoot a kissing scene as she was completely against it,” a source told us.

The filmmaker was forced to shoot a fake kissing sequence to calm Zoya’s mother. “We had to shoot a cheat kissing sequence. It didn’t hamper the film neither did it look out of context,” Zoya tells us.
