As per an entertainment portal, the makers have accepted Jannat’s mom’s conditions and will not be shooting any kissing sequence. Her mother was quoted by the entertainment portal as saying, “Yes, we had a meeting with the makers and they have accepted our terms and conditions. Henceforth, Jannat will not do any intimate scene as has already been mentioned in our contract. She is just 16-year-old and we don’t want her to engage in any sort of intimacy.” Furthermore, she said, “We respect the script’s demand and to tell you, we allowed her to do a few scenes which involved Ritvik kissing Jannat’s hand. In fact, we used to apply wax and make-up on the body so that the sensation of touch is minimal. We know we are part of the glamour industry where such things are normal, but it’s just that my daughter is young for it”.
