#ActressScaredDuringRomanticScenes with Co-Actor 🎬😱

Shalini Pandey, who made a sensational debut in Tollywood with the film Arjun Reddy alongside Rowdy hero Vijay Deverakonda, has captivated Telugu youth with her beauty, innocence, and dimples. After the massive success of her first movie, she appeared in several other films as the lead actress and in side characters, including notable films like Mahanati and Iddari Lokam Okate. Currently, Shalini is busy with a slew of projects in Bollywood, having distanced herself from the Tollywood industry.

Recently, Shalini starred in the film Maharaja, directed by Siddharth Malhotra, featuring Aamir Khan's son Junaid Khan and Jaideep Ahlawat in key roles. The movie premiered on Netflix on June 21. In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Shalini shared some intriguing insights about her experiences while shooting the film.

Shalini portrayed the character Kishori in Maharaja. She revealed her discomfort during a romantic scene with Jaideep Ahlawat, stating that she had to leave the set suddenly. She confessed that the scene had an unexpected impact on her and that she has a fear of being in dark rooms. She requested some time and a calm environment from the director, who understood her situation.

Initially, upon reading the script, Shalini thought Kishori was a naive girl who believed everything she was told. In the movie, Jaideep Ahlawat's character, under the guise of serving, deceives people along with some leaders, committing atrocities against women. Maharaja is based on true events from the 1800s. The film was produced under the YRF Entertainment banner, with Junaid playing a writer fighting against Maharaja's plundering in court.
