Celina Jaitly hires an intimacy supervisor for her upcoming film ‘Season’s Greetings’
After the #MeToo wave hit Bollywood, the issue of women feeling safe at their workplace became the talk of the town. Several Bollywood stars like Varun Dhawan, Sonam Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra came forward and spoke about it. Now, in what could be a landmark move, Celina Jaitly has hired an intimacy supervisor for her upcoming film ‘Season’s Greetings’.
In an interview with mid-day, Jaitly said, “Recently, a journalist from a leading daily called me for my opinion on Hollywood roping in intimacy supervisors for scenes that might be uncomfortable for male or female actors to perform. That got me thinking. Soon, I had a detailed conversation with my director, who agreed to implement this. We both felt it could set a precedent. This shows that Bollywood is slowly and steadily welcoming the change. It’s not that I was doing a love making scene for the first time, but with an intimacy supervisor around, I was very comfortable.”
In the film, Celina and Azhar (her male co-star) will be shown as live-in partners.
Indeed, this is a great move by Celina. Kudos to her. We hope that more actresses follow suit and sexual misconduct is a closed chapter in Bollywood. Also, we hope that everyone accused in the #MeToo movement is served justice soon.
