Whether it is a daily soap or finite series, intimacy is a key to getting in the TRPs. Actors, today have no issues about consummation scenes or kisses, if the script demands it. However, the makers of Nagarjuna – Ek Yoddha faced a problem when actress Pooja Banerjee put her foot down when told to kiss co-star Pearl V Puri. The track was a wedding night one, however, she was uncomfortable and requested that it be tweaked. Pooja got engaged to swimming champion Sandeep Sejwal in October.

The lady in a statement to Bombay Times said, “My fiance is fine with me being an actor. However, as he does not belong to this industry, he will not be able to understand the need for such scenes. I also felt that I did not want to make him or my would-be in-laws unhappy. When I got the script, it involved kissing and a full first-night sequence, which I wasn’t comfortable with. It’s only after I requested the makers that the scenes were rewritten.”

On the show, she is married to Arjun played by Pearl V Puri. They are childhood sweethearts and get married recently. When asked about the experience of filming intimate scenes, she said, “I was actually laughing during the shoot. It was more funny than awkward.” Pooja met Sandeep at a swimming event years ago. The couple become friends and started dating. She is a Bengali from Aligarh while Sandeep is from Haryana. Her engagement was as per North Indian traditions.
