The first three intimate scenes were shot in silhouette and dim light, and no scene of any personal nature was to extend beyond 30 seconds each. During the shoot of the first three scenes, as if they were fully lit, I was once again reassured that in the post, the scenes would be dimmed, and on edit, the settings wouldn’t extend beyond what was discussed.

Again to realize that once again, I was manipulated, and each scene was released for a duration of 3 to 4 minutes in bright light. I felt let down and admit did not want to promote the project at all, but after talking with Mr. Sushant Singh (CINTAA HEAD), I agreed to promote the series. My PR team, in fact, even followed up with their PR team for PR strategy and dates constantly. Asked for details of interviews they planned with journalists, but nothing was ever shared with us. They only wanted me to have a picture with the CEO of Ullu to put on MediaNet in TIMES. Despite all the bad blood, I was willing to promote the series, but I can’t be made to enable a channel in particular or act as their brand ambassador.”
