Netflix series SHE became a talking point due to its bold intimate scenes.

When asked if there were any apprehensions she felt while performing the intimate scenes in SHE, Aaditi told, “Basically, I approached it from Bhoomi’s mind.

That’s it. So, if Bhoomi is feeling the need to do this, then I know why she is feeling the need to do this.

The whole idea of the series is that a woman realizes her power through her sexuality, and sexuality is nothing but something that she has discovered within herself, which is not a bad thing.

So, when you talk about this [the need for intimate scenes], it automatically makes me, as an actor, realize who Bhoomi is.”
