  • Elnaaz was initially not comfortable in doing the steamy scenes in the web series “Sacred Games.” She credits Anurag Kashyap for instilling confidence in her and says-

    It was very tough for me because I haven’t done such things before. The whole dilemma around it when I was sitting with Anurag sir was how am I going to do this. He sat with me throughout every scene and helped me throughout the whole thing. Had he not been there I wouldn’t be confident enough to do it with any other director. I would like to thank him for this. We had a great time and a great team who was very helpful during the filming of the said scenes.”

  • In July 2019, Elnaaz was detained at the Chicago international airport and interrogated for about 3 hours by the airport authorities. While explaining the ordeal she faced at the Chicago airport, Elnaaz said-

    I had to stay in immigration for more than 3 hours or so and I was stopped by the officers to board my connecting flight. I hold a German passport and so I do not require a visa to travel to the United States. But due to my Iranian roots, I applied for a normal visa as Trump has put some ban on Iranis and they do not get ESTA anymore and that’s why they wanted to double-check on everything.”
