The actress also revealed that many projects that were offered to her with kiss and intimate scenes but she rejected them.

She also added that her family and in-laws don’t feel comfortable watching her kiss or get intimate on screen. “I know that both sides of my family will watch any project when it comes out. They also know that it’s my job but I don’t want them to cringe. I don’t want them to think, ‘Why is my daughter-in-law doing this even after marriage? Why is somebody else putting their hands on her?’ They will not voice it out but it’s my personal choice,” she said.
