The reason for this is the strict social distance restrictions in place during the current pandemic. Because physical closeness has become the new norm, Bhansali has opted to cut a tender love scene between Alia Bhatt and her love interest, played by dancer-turned-actor Shantanu Maheshwari.

An informed source revealed, “I guess it’s better to be safe than sorry in these troubled times. Physical intimacy would definitely be avoided in Bhansali’s shooting. He will find another way of showing a romantic closeness.”
