Sonam Bajwa reveals she was scared to film kissing scenes
"I said no to a couple of things in Bollywood because I was like, ‘Is Punjab going to be OK with it? We have that mentality, that families will be watching… I was very scared to do a kissing scene in a film back then, because I thought, ‘How are people going to respond to it, how will these people, who’ve made me who I am, respond to it? Is my family going to understand that this is for a film?’ I had all these questions in my mind," the actress told Film Companion.
Sonam also added that she spoke to her mom and dad about it. "They were like, ‘Yes, if it’s for a film, it’s fine’. And I was so shocked. Why did I not speak to them first? So many things we assume in our head. I was so shy to discuss this with my parents, and they were like, ‘Koi nahi, je film liya, koi chakkar ni."
