The two actresses will be the first to share a kiss on a fiction show on Indian TV. Here's what Madhura had to say about the scene...
When it comes to Indian TV shows shooting a consummation scene is a matter of great debate for makers. No wonder, even married couples on TV take 18-20 months to create some ruffle under the sheets. However, in tonight’s episode of the Big F, which is hosted by Gautam Gulati, we will see TV actresses Madhura Naik and Aasma Badar locking lips for the first time for a fiction show on the small screen. Big F is a show exploring sexuality in contemporary youth and it is hosted by Gautam Gulati.
Apparently, the two will play good friends and their lives will take a drastic turn when a handsome photographer played by Aditya Singh Rajput enters their lives. That is when they will discover that they are attracted to each other. It is a bold subject and many actors would have balked at the very thought of doing it onscreen.
\Talking exclusively to BollywoodLife.com, Madhura Naik says, “Yes, I was a little apprehensive when I heard it for the first time but then it was a beautiful script. I found the role very challenging and thought it would be a great opportunity to prove my versatility as an actor.” However, shooting the scene wasn’t a cakewalk. She made a special request to the director to shoot the sequence with a minimum crew. “It was only Aasma, I our director and cameraman in the room. I know Aasma from before and we do share a comfort level being friends. However, it was not easy to her as well to execute this scene. It was tough but we did it with professionalism.”
Considering the fact that most TV shows like to hold onto to traditions, did Madhura’s bold decision raise eyebrows? “In fact, I was quite scared about how people would react but people called me up and congratulated me on my guts. They told me the scene has been nicely shot and is not at all sleazy. It has been taken positively,” says Madhura.
The lissome lass has been working in the industry since 2006 and has done shows like Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki, Pyaar Ki Yeh Ek Kahaani, Dill Mill Gayee, Tumhari Pakhi and Tum Aise Hi Rehna to name a few. Has Madhura been hit upon by a woman in real life? “No…not actually,” she giggles. Madhura feels her decision to take up this role has opened up new avenues for her in the industry.
With the scenario changing in telly land, she feels bolder topics will surely come into the mainstream. The actress further says her mom saw the show and fully understood that it was her job as an actress. “We have evolved as a society and just put a lid on such issues,” signs off Madhura.
