The Shakun Batra directorial is being pitched as a mature relationship drama. It is being co-produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. The official synopsis of Gehraiyaan reads, “Directed by the very talented Shakun Batra, the much-awaited movie looks beneath the surface of complex modern relationships, adulting, letting go and taking control of ones’ life path.”

As far as Hollywood is concerned, the makers released two brand new posters of the upcoming The Batman movie. While one featured the cowled face of the Caped Crusader, the other starred Pattinson and Zoe Kravtiz as Batman and Catwoman, respectively.

Ananya on how she reacted when Shakun offered her the film

“I watched all these international films before meeting Shakun. But when I met him, he was such a chilled out guy. He makes sure that we are all prepared and gives actors the space they need. I was in complete shock to know that they actually thought about me to do this film. Gehraiyaan is an experience, I can't put it in one word,” Ananya spoke about the film.

‘I get to romance 2 beautiful women’

Siddhant said at Gehraiyaan launch, “I am relatively new, and I haven't played many characters yet. I am still exploring different characters and genres. Gehraiyaan felt so layered and nuanced that I felt that the style of filmmaking is so different. I wanted to do it as it is very different from what I have done till date. It is quite layered and deep. I am romancing two beautiful women.”

Is Gehraiyaan about infidelity?

Asked whether Gehraiyaan is about infidelity, Karan said, “On the face of it, people might think it is a film on infidelity in relationships, but there is so much more to it.”

Shakun explained, “Gehraiyaan doens't have infidelity under the garb of finding a soulmate because I don't think relationships work like that, it is more about finding yourself.”

Deepika says Gehraiyaan ‘first of a kind’ for her

Deepika Padukone said Shakun is the best when it comes to showcasing different relationship. “He watches different kind of people and different kind of relationship without the lens of judgement. Whether it is the film or the character, we haven't seen something like this. So, this is my first of its kind, one has to really dig deep and understand what the director is trying to excavate from you.”

Deepika on Ananya, Siddhanth and Dhairya

Deepika says Shakun came to London to narrate the script when she was shooting for 83. “He is not my director, we have become friends, and we have promised each other that we are always going to be honest with each other and maybe that's the reason we could make Gehraiyaan the way it is. We have given so much of ourselves to the film and along the way made such great friends. Ananya, Siddhanth and Dhairya, we truly had the best time one can have on a film set. Dhairya is like a big brother to me, I know I can call him anytime and I know he will be there for me. Ananya is younger than my younger sister and I love her. Siddhant, I have seen his work closely in Gully Boy and now working together was great. We have seen each other bloom and blossom while working on this film. We all have really grown in the last two years, and that's my takeaway from Gehraiyaan.”

Deepika Padukone on Gehraiyaan

Deepika Padukone calls Gehraiyaan an incredible journey. She shared, “Shakun, like most actors, has always been on my bucket list. Ranveer Singh (husband) always thought Shakun and I'd make a great film, and here we are. Deep down inside, I knew we would make a film together, didn't ever feel the need to pursue. I knew that it would just happen one day.”

15:14 (IST)20 Jan 2022
Siddhant says nothing like Gehraiyaan made before

Siddhant says that he is emotional today. “When Shakun narrated the script to me, I knew I had to do it, but I didn't know how. There was no reference point to it. There is nothing like this ever made. I have goosebumps and I am very excited for everyone to see it,” he said.

She said, “Every single person involved on the film is special. I am very grateful to everyone, as I got the opportunity to work on this film. We were sent to Goa to shoot and we were so away from everyone else that we became a family.”

Dhairya on Gehraiyaan

Dhairya calls Genraiyaan a great learning journey. He said, “This is the first time I am centrally cast and everybody from Shakun to Deepika, they have made me feel very comfortable, and that kind of takes the pressure off.” Karan said Dhairya’s part is very close to his heart because he is named Karan.
