The TV show “Tu Aashiqui” has been gaining good TRP numbers since the start. The concept is based on two lovers’ effort to unite in the musical background. There are reports that it is inspired by the American film Endless Love. In the serial, actors Jannat Zubair Rahmani and Ritvik Arora are seen playing the roles of Pankti and Ahaan.
Currently, the storyline focuses on Ahaan supporting Pankti’s dream of becoming a singer. Also, with some melodious background music, there were some romantic scenes between the couple, which actually sparked the controversy. Yes, you read it right!
Jannat’s mother had some objections to these scenes, especially when Jannat was asked to kiss Ritvik.
“A kissing scene between Pankti and Ahaan was being planned. It didn’t go down well with Pankti’s mother. She was totally against it. In fact, later the discussion turned into an argument when the producers refused to see her point of view.”
Moreover, there are reports that Jannat’s mother had ensured a no-kissing pact in the contract while signing.
