Actor-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt, who is on the cusp of an acting comeback with Bombay Begums, has spoken about the nervousness with which she approached a romantic scene in her first film, Sadak.

Directed by her father, Mahesh Bhatt, Sadak starred Sanjay Dutt as a Mumbai taxi driver. Pooja, in a new interview, revealed the advice her father gave her, to quell her nerves before shooting a kissing scene with her co-star, whom she had idolised growing up.

“Innocence needs to be the approach. This was the first lesson I learnt on sets of Sadak many, many years ago, when I had to kiss my icon Sanjay Dutt, I was all of 18 years, and here I was kissing the man whose posters I had in my room," she told Bollywood Hungama.

She continued, "I remember my father taking me aside and telling me something that has remained with me for the rest of my life. He said, 'Pooja if you are going to feel vulgar, it is going to look vulgar. So you need to approach a kissing scene or love making scene with a lot of innocence, grace and dignity, because the intention is communicated.'”
