When Jaaved Jaaferi suffered short-term memory loss

The Salaam Namaste actor doesn’t keep his commitment of not doing steamy scenes

Jaaved Jaaferi is known for his amazing dance moves and comic acts, but his serious side usually goes unnoticed. His latest film The Forest seems to be an attempt to showcase his acting chops, as he is not playing to the gallery in it. Apparently the horror flick has a steamy scene and we had heard long ago that Jaaved would not be doing such scenes ever. When it was pointed out that he had gone back on his word, he said, “I readily agreed to it because when Nandana came in front of me, I suffered a short-term memory loss about my earlier statements. Of course, it was my wife Habeeba who brought me back to reality – only after completing the scene though.” Wethinks Jaaved is one of the most underrated actors in B-town and we hope he gets to act in more films that do justice to his acting talent.
