Leave a Comment

India is just in the middle of another newbie making her Bollywood debut.

We’re talking about Patraleka who’ll be seen in  Hansal Mehta’s ‘Citylights’, paired opposite her real life boyfriend and award-winner Rajkummar Yadav.
The film’s promos show some lovemaking scenes between Rajkummar and Patralekha. Talking about it she says: “There are a few lovemaking scenes but I would not call them bold because it’s an integral part of the storytelling.

“I didn’t have any apprehensions because I knew the script. Hansal sir was directing it. I had seen his body of work and I exactly knew what he wanted out of it.”

Asked whether she was comfortable during the lovemaking scenes, and Patraleka replied: “Shooting lovemaking scenes with Rajkummar wasn’t easy. I don’t know why it would be easy if it was Rajkummar or XYZ because there are people who are seeing you and it’s being filmed.

“It’s a personal zone you are getting into and ultimately it will be shown on the big screen.

“But Hansal sir made me comfortable. He asked everyone to leave except the key people who were required for the shoot.”
