Jannat Zubair father on intimate scenes in Tu Aashiqui Won’t give my daughter permission to enact adult scenes at this age.
So turns out Jannat Zubair, who plays the main lead in Tu Aashiqui might be replaced. 16-year-old Jannat’s parents were already outraged when they found out that the makers wanted her to do an intimate kissing scene with Rithvik Arora. Jannat’s parents are totally against it since the actress is still a minor and they do not want to see her indulge in such scenes. There was also buzz that the channel has decided to replace Jannat for the same reason and they have already started auditioning for the role. Speaking about this, Jannat’s father told Pinkvilla, “Jannat is shooting today. We had a meeting scheduled with the production team but they have started auditioning before that. Let them conduct auditions.”
He also said, “All I can say is Jannat is a good performer. When we had signed the show, we had decided what we wanted Jannat to do and what we didn’t. We want her to establish herself as a good actor because of her talent and not by making her perform kissing and adult scenes. We had signed an agreement with the makers regarding the same which they breached but we still co-operated but now demands are going overboard. Jannat’s fan following includes kids and teenagers and we don’t want to send out a wrong message to people.
He also added that she just a minor now and they want to give her acting career a boost but not like this. He told the portal, “I won’t give my daughter permission to enact adult or kissing scenes at this age. She is a minor, just 16-years-old. Once, she grows old then she can decide for herself. This show [Tu Aashiqui] is seen by the family and amidst this, if the makers want to make an adult film, it is not possible for us to adapt to it. Even the Government doesn’t allow marriage before 18 and to make her perform such scenes at this age is just not acceptable.” What are your thoughts on this?
