Actress Vidya Malavade, who plays Zeenat Karim, a pivotal character in the web series Mismatched, was required to something that not many of us would want to, during the shoot of the second season of the show.

Mismatched's second season was shot extensively in Jodhpur, Jaipur and other parts of Rajasthan, during the summer. In conversation with OTTplay, the actress revealed that for one part, she had to wear a leather suit in Jaipur's extreme heat.

Vidya said, "It was a lot of fun to reunite with all my co-stars during the shooting of season two. When we did the first season, we did not know where we were heading, but post the release, Prajakta and Rohit became heartthrobs. All of our characters, especially Zeenat, were extremely well received. So, we really had a lot of josh and jazbaat to put everything into making the new season the best!"

But she also shared that it was not an easy shoot for her. "We were shooting in Jaipur in August and September last year, and it was around 42 degrees! For my sequence, I had to wear a leather suit... for five days! Imagine wearing a head-to-toe leather suit at 42 degrees and shooting! I did it with great difficulty. I remember the whole leather suit would stick to my skin and later the team had to peel it off from my body. It was almost like waxing!" laughed Vidya.

After 5 days of the shoot, Vidya fell sick. But looking at the positive reviews from the audience, she realised that every bit of pain was worth it.

"Of course, acting is not an easy job. Looking fab can be tough. But, hey, anything for a character and for fans!" added Vidya.

Mismatched Season 2, directed by Akarsh Khurana, which also features -Vihaan Samat, Rannvijay Singha and Ahsaas Channa, apart from Vidya, is now streaming on Netflix.
