News of Riya Sen’s upcoming web-series is featuring in headlines as much as her viral honeymoon picture (she married her longtime boyfriend Shivam Tewari recently) because the actress had an intimate scene toned down, reports news agency IANS. Riya plays the lead role of Simran in web-series titled Ragini MMS Returns (based on Ekta Kapoor’s Ragini MMS films). Riya Sen read the script of the show and realized that there would be intimate scenes between her and co-star Nishant Malkani. However, on the day of the shooting Riya did not feel comfortable and spoke to director Suyash Vadhavkar. “I had reservations shooting for the intimate scene. I discussed my discomfort with Suyash and finally convinced him to tone down the scene,” Riya said in a statement, reports IANS.
Ragini MMS Returns is produced by ALT Balaji, a subsidy of Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms. Recently, the first poster of the web-series featuring actress Karishma Sharma (the show’s second lead) went viral. Actor Siddharth Gupta also featured on the poster with Karishma.
