Teenager’s love-making scene creates dilemma for producers

Bollywood News

Producer Anupam Kher and director Satish Kaushik are in a fix about their bold film on teen pregnancy Tere Sang, which is on release. No, it isn't a moral dilemma but a very practical and in-your-face problem. Says a source, "The film has shaped up into a thought provoking look at love, sex and commitment among youngsters today. However, the crucial love scene where the 17 year old boy played by Ruslaan makes love to the 15-year old girl and impregnates her is very fleetingly shot." Apparently, the young debutante actress, Sheena Shahabadi, was petrified doing such an intimate scene in her very first film. "Though she was briefed about it from the start, Sheena developed cold feet when it came to doing the love-making scene. The director Satish Kaushik kept postponing it. Finally, when Sheena agreed to do it, she refused to convey any serious intimacy. She even refused to kiss her co-star Ruslaan Mumtaz on the lips. Satish had to settle for a chin kiss." The Tere Sang lead, Ruslaan Mumtaz (who made his debut in 2007 with Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar), admits his co-star was coy. "Yes, she did have problems with the love scene. And she did refuse to do the kiss. I don't blame her. Sheena is just a kid! I felt very embarrassed to even do such a scene with her. But as actors we both had to be thoroughly professional. Sheena conducted herself as best as she could. And we somehow managed the scene." Ruslaan jumps to his callow co-star's defence. "See, Tere Sang isn't just about intimacy between two strangers. It's also about how two immature under-age people try to set up a home together. Satishji doesn't want to glorify promiscuousness and teen sex by making it look attractive on screen. So, in a way Sheena's inhibitions worked to our advantage." However, Satish Kaushik who's current scouting locations in Africa for Himesh Reshammiya starrer, Karzzzz, admits the scene didn't turn out as effectively as he would've liked to."But Ruslaan is right. We don't want to make Tere Sang look like an invitation for teenagers to make love at an age when they should be making class projects. My film shows how parental neglect can trigger off a sexual rebellion in kids. I didn't want to sensationalize the love-making."
