Areeba Habib is a well-known actress who is currently working in drama serial Jalan. She is playing the role of Misha, who is wife of Emmad Irfani and sister of Minal Khan.
In an interview, Areeba Habib talked about the slap scenes and also her bonding with Minal Khan in real life.
While talking about slap scene she said, “There is a scene which you all liked and that’s the most difficult scene for me. The slap scene was the one, I was literally shivering. The director said to me that you have to slap and pull her hair and that too in one go. I had to do in one scene or else my energy and expressions will change.”
Talking about her bonding with Minal, she said, “It was difficult for me because I am so attached to Minal offset because she is like younger and kiddo for me. So it was difficult for me to pull her hair and slap her.”
“But then it took a lot of time to shoot this scene because I wanted to absorb all this properly. It was a breaking point for Misha and now she knows everything. Earlier, it was in her mind but on that note, she knew everything. Also, Nadia Hussain really helped me out.”
She further added, “However, the slap scenes are not real. People thought they were real but I can’t slap really. In any of my drama, there is no real slap. I just pretended to slap.”
