“I was in two minds whether I should do it or not. That’s why I discussed it with Yulida, who is literally my boss and then a wife. She completely understands my work and is the one who encouraged me to do it without hesitation,” said Ravi, who earlier did shows like Dharam Veer, Do Dil Bandhe Ek Dori Se, Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat and Jodha Akbar, along with two Indonesian series Roro Jonggrang and Cinta Di Langit Taj Mahal.
He further added, “It’s not a cakewalk for the actors to shoot a steamy scene, especially when they are shooting for the first time. I was hell nervous, that’s why I kept asking Shafaq (Naaz), ‘How are we going to do this?’. Like me, she was also quite uncomfortable before the scenes. The production team and our director Deepak Pandey made us comfortable. All the intimate scenes were shot aesthetically and the outcome was beautiful. I am glad that I got an opportunity to do something different.”
The series showcased the issues stemming post ‘Triple Talaq’ faced by women in the Muslim community. Apart from Ravi, ‘Halala’ also stars Shafaq Naaz, Deepika Singh, Eijaz Khan and Neelima Azeem.
