Jannat, who plays Pankti, is the love interest of Ahaan, played by Ritvik Arora. Now, Jannat, 16, was recently asked to shoot a kissing sequence with her co-star in the serial. This did not go down well with Jannat's mother. There are reports that claim the actress's mother contacted the producers of the show and clearly stated her disagreement over the kissing scene, citing Jannat being a minor as the major reason.
Times Now reports that a kissing scene between Pankti and Ahaan was being planned. It did not go down well with Pankti's mother. She entered into a heated argument with the producers.
SpotboyE reports that Jannat might be replaced, as the makers are in talks with three young actresses, Helly Shah, Puja Bannerjee and Tanya Sharma for playing the female lead of the show. The same report states Helly has already given her dates to a few other assignments which in turn would not enable her to commit to the production house (Gurudev Bhalla Productions).
The same report states that Jannat's mother, meanwhile, claimed that the contract that was between the makers and Jannat had it clearly mentioned that there would be no kissing scene done by her. No official statements have been made from the makers yet.
