The Shahroz Sabzwari and Syra Yousuf-starrer Babylicious is set for release in February and fans anticipate to see the on-screen chemistry between the two, especially after a recent ‘awkward’ interview of the duo together.
In a recent talk with Something Haute, Shahroz looked shocked at Syra’s responses on multiple instances of the session.
The Sinf-e-Aahan star at one point went on to share how she ‘really’ felt working with Shahroz, on the set of the Essa Khan film.
“We were comfortable [working together],” Shahroz said before quickly correcting, “I will only talk about myself.”
He made the remarks when asked if working together was something that they were comfortable with, following their separation in 2020.
The host then said that she wasn’t talking about the film, but themselves as a ‘couple’ and if they were finding it difficult to be on the same set.
Syra then said, “Let me respond to what you are referring to; of course it gets irritating…when you move on and you went through it and you’ve come out of that…let it be then. Let’s focus on what it is now.”
She added, “It takes time for people to get used to what they see on the screen. At this, Shahroz added, “Exactly [people might think] why we are sitting on this sofa together.
In an earlier interview, Syra, who has a seven-year-old daughter, Nooreh, with Shahroz, spoke about her experience of motherhood, divorce and the media.
She revealed that she felt uncomfortable about the media sensationalism around her personal life, at the time when she was going through the process of separation from her partner.
“I don’t feel betrayed because I didn’t expect much. But I do find it very insensitive because where you are recycling a story and making connections again and again for the sake of likes and numbers, it’s very important for you to understand that someone else is actually living through what you are constantly talking about.”
Describing the coverage of her life as “bombardment,” the star added: “I feel like it was insensitive. Personal lives should stay personal, and if you do end up finding something out from some source, there’s a way to put it out there.”
Speaking about the coverage of her life, she said: “I felt very exposed. I just kept wondering when people would stop talking about it so that I could process it on my own.”
