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.”
