Mum raised serious objections to bold scenes, says Sana
Sana Khan’s (above) bold scenes with Gurmeet Choudhary in the 2016 film Wajah Tum Ho might have been appreciated by the audience, but the actor says that it wasn’t easy for her to convince her mother about why she did such scenes.
“I belong to a very conservative family,” says Sana, who shot to fame with the reality show Bigg Boss Season 6. “Though I’m a very broad-minded girl, I don’t think any parent would appreciate their daughter stripping on-screen. Even for other [female actors], I don’t think their mothers will be sitting, clapping and hooting when the daughter is doing a bold scene in a film,” says Sana, adding that at the same time, parents do understand acting as a profession.
Her mother, Sana recalls, even met the director of Wajah Tum Ho and asked him if there was a scope to snip the bold scenes. “He tried explaining there are people who are financing the film, so it’s not a director’s fault or decision,” shares the actor.
Sana adds that she was a little “scared” during the shoot of that particular scene, which showed the lead characters making love. She says, “I made sure that only my director, cameraman and one trolley guy was present. My director even used to laugh, saying, ‘You can never do erotic scenes.”
