I was uncomfortable doing it. The scene was very intimate.
A body double was summoned?
Yes, and I am thankful to Ekta Kapoor for understanding it from my perspective.

Did you not shoot the scene because your husband Nikitin Dheer doesn't like you getting intimate with co-stars on screen?
Nikitin is not a possessive husband. Aisa kuch bhi nahin hai.
Then why didn't you shoot?
It was my call. I have always been like that. I never shot intimate scenes even for my earlier shows like Punar Vivah. The audiences know the kind of work I do, and trust me they pretty well know about it.
P.S: The consummation scene between Kratika Sengar and Ssharad Malhotra will be aired sometime this week. The Balaji crew took only close-ups of Kratika, while the body-double shot for back shots. There was no coercion, no cajoling.
