Gehraiyaan is an upcoming romantic drama film directed by Shakun Batra. The film is jointly produced by Dharma Productions, Viacom18 Studios and Jouska Films. The film is scheduled to premiere on 11 February 2022 on Amazon Prime Video.
The trailer of the movie has been released. The characters look intense and interesting. The actress revealed that she gave 48 takes for a scene in the movie. Deepika was asked about the scene and whether it was a rumor that she did so many takes, but the actress told Film Companion, “This is true and I have my friends who will vouch for it. I know I’m not Alone in this battle.” The co-star added, “Once Shakun made me do 48 variations in one take. So, in one take only he was like now do 48. That was his trick.”
Deepika added, “I have worked with directors who know exactly what they want. And then you have directors who have no clue what they want. And here, you have Shakun, who is so unique, he knows exactly what he wants but he’s also figuring it out. So, he sits right in the middle of the process which I have never experienced. So, when people say, ‘What is it like working with him?’ And I tell people yeah, he makes you do 48 takes and they say ‘he doesn’t know what he wants’.”
The film stars Deepika Padukone, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday, Dhairya Karwa with Naseeruddin Shah and Rajat Kapoor in supporting roles.
