Tiger Shroff‘s next release is a dance drama, Munna Michael, which will mark the debut of newcomer Niddhi Agerwal. The film is being helmed by director Sabbir Khan and went on floors last weekend.
According to a report in Mid-day, Nidhi, who is yet to begin shooting, has been asked to sign a no-dating clause until the film wraps up. The contract extends beyond the limits of the sets.
The actress, however, has no issues with the contract, and was quoted as saying:
“I had to read it [the contract] twice over to believe it, but I don’t really have a problem. I understand that the intention is that they want 100 per cent dedication from me. Not like I have a life beyond work in any case. My understanding of it is that the makers have included the clause because dating a co-star has become an easy publicity exercise for production houses. It takes the focus away from the film. Now, I can put my phone away and practice for four hours without worrying about who’s calling me. It is a matter of five-six months and I am okay with it.”
The producer, Viki Rajani, also does not feel the clause is an unfair move, as he said:
“Tiger is already a star while this is Niddhi’s launch film. She is a bright girl and we don’t want her to get distracted. Sabbir (Khan, director) and I have seen real potential in her and this will do her good. It’s not like we made her sign [the contract] at gunpoint. She agreed to it. It’s a big launch. She starts shooting on October 8 and will be done by February.”
Psst! Trivia- According to some reports, Mirzya‘s lead pair Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher were asked not to mingle with each other or party post shoot or consume alcohol on set.
