Aisha Ahmed, who is the female lead of the upcoming web series Minus One: New Chapter, says that a boy and a girl can be just friends and not have romantic feelings for each other.
Aisha told OTTplay, "Society tells us that a boy and girl cannot be just friends. This narrative ends up affecting friendships. And I have experienced that. I have been just friends with boys, but they would end up expecting more from me. That broke my heart. Thankfully, I have also met some amazing boys, who are my best friends and we have no romantic feelings between us. The kind of friendship I share with my male friends is beautiful. I hope more people can understand that romance is not a prerequisite for such relationships."
Thea actress added, "In a big city like Mumbai, people still understand this to some extent, but in small towns, people still believe that a boy and a girl cannot be just friends. Pushing the narrative of romantic relationships is just wrong."
Minus One: New Chapter is a nuanced and unflinching tale of love, heartbreaks, and friendship between Varun (Ayush Mehra) and Ria (Aisha), and how they do not end up getting their happily ever after. It has been shot extensively in Delhi and in Mumbai. Created by Sidhantha Mathur and Shubham Yogi, the web series will be available to stream on Lionsgate Play from February 14.
