Sha­hana doesn’t mind kissing on screen

Ac­tor Sha­hana Goswami might not have played the quin­tes­sen­tial hero­ine in Bol­ly­wood films, but her choice of roles, so far, made sure she got no­ticed.

In her latest re­lease Tu Hai Mera Sun­day, the ac­tor has been paired op­po­site tele­vi­sion heart­throb Barun Sobti, and their on-screen kiss has been the talk of the town.

Asked if she ever had any ap­pre­hen­sions about the kissing scene, Sha­hana is quick to re­fer to her fil­mog­ra­phy. “I’ve done on-screen kisses [pre­vi­ously also]. They’ve also been hyped. But I don’t have any ob­jec­tion to it. It is like any other scene,” she says.

How­ever, she feels it is im­por­tant that ev­ery­thing is based on the au­then­tic­ity and re­quire­ment of it in the project.

“If you’re re­quired to burst out cry­ing [in a scene], you can de­bate that with your di­rec­tor if you feel that it’s not needed,” says the ac­tor.

“Bold scenes or kisses have to be an or­ganic part of the story and script. Also, I need to have a level of trust and com­fort with my di­rec­tor and pro­ducer,” she says be­fore adding “I feel quite com­fort­able as an ac­tor to do and to per­form any­thing that is re­quired of me in a given role.”

Sha­hana trashes the ru­mour that Sobti re­quested the film­mak­ers to tone down love­mak­ing scenes. “When you watch the film, you would re­alise there’s no scope for in­ti­mate scenes. It’s a very slow-brew­ing ro­mance, rather friend­ship, which doesn’t even cul­mi­nate into a re­la­tion­ship right till the end of the film,” says the ac­tor, who’s fea­tured in sev­eral movies in­clud­ing Rock On!! (2008), Rock On 2 (2016), Ru Ba Ru (2008) and Hero­ine (2012)
