In an interview to SpotBoye, Chitrangda Singh spoke straightaway about the controversial part: “We finished the shot and Kushan said that he didn’t like it.



He wanted me to lie on top of Nawaz. Now let me tell you that I was wearing a petticoat for that scene. I turned around to tell Kushan about my predicament.


I told him: ‘Ho toh gaya. Kyun kar raha hai aise? Please try to understand that I am wearing a petticoat. But, he was in no mood to listen and we ended up having a big, loud argument.”


She cited director as saying, “ I should do it bindaas.” What is a bindaas woman? One who wears a petticoat and jumps on a man, asked Singh.


“We had already shot a montage where Kushan wanted me to do something similar. Nawaz and I had also kissed in that montage, and now Kushan wanted a 7-second kiss in the intimate scene.



Even Nawaz told him ‘Kiss kiya toh hai, ab kya chahiye Kushan?’ Kiran interfered and I turned around to tell her: Who are you to explain my scene to me?”

After the entire episode, the actress left the shooting spot in rage.


“Nawaz called me when I headed to the airport. He asked me to return. I told him to speak to Kushan and if he sees my viewpoint, I am still 30 minutes away from the airport and ready to come back.


But Kushan did not revert and I only told him one thing, “You must make a film that you want to make. You are the director. Please go ahead and put your vision on celluloid,” said Singh.
