Pearl Thusi stars as a 30-year old freelance journalist in Kagiso Lediga's film, "Catching Feelings", which is currently being shot around Jozi.

After reports surfaced that  during the shooting of a sex scene Thusi asked fellow-crew members to take off their clothes to make her comfortable, Pearl's publicist, Simphiwe Majola set the record straight, reported Sowetan Live.

"Pearl was in the midst of shooting a romantic scene, and being the high energy, fun person she is, she asked the crew to remove items of clothing to make her feel more comfortable," Majola said.

Simphiwe blew off the moment as "light hearted fun between the cast members."

Making his directorial debut with the film, comedian Kagiso Lediga said they did it to support "Mama Panther".

"We did it to support her because we were shooting a scene where people are not dressed 'to much'", Lediga said.
