What is opinion of scholars about the matter that sometimes in drama and film a man and woman are married, even if they are doing drama, but the sitting is one and adults are present there. So does the marriage happen in this case? Similarly if they are husband and wife will the divorce occur in Drama. If it really occurs then what is the suggestion for producers to avoid this?

Narrated Abu Hurayrah: The Prophet (saws) said: There are three things which, whether undertaken seriously or in jest, are treated as serious: Marriage, divorce and taking back a wife (Raj?t). [Sunan Abi Dawud 2194] According to this hadith if boy and girl? real names are called and girl is not already married then Nikah will occur. But if their real names are not called as it happens normally in dramas, or she is already married then Nikah will not occur. Likewise, if the husband divorces his wife addressing her without name or with her real name then divorce also will occur. But if man divorces without addressing her or using a fake name such as ? have divorced Fatima d/o Umar?while her original name is Shazia d/o Riaz then divorce will not occur, but if he divorces his wife in drama addressing her or naming her then talaq will occur.
And Allah Knows the best
