Actress Shweta Tripathi has been in news for a masturbation scene in her upcoming series Mirzapur. The actress, however, is nonchalant about the scene and insists that it is no big deal.

Shwetha says, “When I heard the script, I didn’t think twice about it. It’s a girl sitting in the library and reading 50 Shades of Grey. And I was like great, I don’t have to involve anybody else into it. I was very happy.”

 

“The scene was shot and I was sure about the director. Now suddenly, people are saying it is a bold scene. And I wonder ‘why are you blowing it out of proportion?’,” she says.

The thrilling and gripping crime drama has an ensemble cast of Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal, Vikrant Massey, Divyendu Sharma, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Shweta Tripathi, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Rasika Dugal, Harshita Gaur and Amit Sial.

Talking more about the scene, she adds, “When I Google, I don’t want to see Shweta Tripathi masturbating in a library, because that’s not the point of the scene. The point is that a girl doesn’t even need a boy to satisfy her. She is satisfying herself. If a man does it, it’s no big deal. Why make a big deal when a woman does it?” She asks perplexed.

 

She states, “I did not feel awkward about it. But now that there is so much focus on it, I feel I may need to issue a disclaimer to my friends or mother-in-law.”
