Mahi Gill, whos unleashed a raunchfest of sorts in her two new films, admits that in real life she is a very shy person.

The girl from Punjab is in the news for steamy lovemaking scenes she has shot in the newly released Not A Love Story and the upcoming Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster.

While for the intimate scene with Randeep Hooda in Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster, Mahi Gill got a little drunk to ease her nerves, she admits she was not at ease filming the sex scene with Deepak Dobriyal in Not A Love Story.

So hot was the scene that filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma was uneasy while filming it and even apologized to Mahi after the scene was canned.

Mahi says the reason for her discomfort is that she is primarily a shy person.

I am a very shy person in real life, Mahi Gill is quoted to have said in an interview.

Mahi admits that she felt awkward doing the intimate scenes.

I feel awkward doing these scenes and it's not very easy because the entire crew is there. But I feel that it's like any other emotion and one has to depict it, she is quoted as saying.

Not A Love Story has Mahi Gill playing a struggling actress who is caught in a deadly love triangle that ends with murder.
