Hopefully we can normalize on-screen intimacy with Gehraiyaan: Deepika Padukone | Bollywood

by Joe Bourn

The actor says that emotional preparation for a movie is as difficult as physical preparation and that he is better equipped to handle emotionally heavy movies and characters now

In addition to the love songs, the familiar scenes of actors Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi in Gehraiyaan, choreographed by Ukrainian director Dar Gai, have become the talk of the town. Padukone quiz about this and says, “We hope, with this film, we can normalize these things (showing familiar scenes on screen). There is so much more to this movie than just infidelity and intimacy. And we hope that the public will realize it after completing the watching of the film “.

Shakun Batra’s directing based on the complexity of the relationship turned out to be an “emotionally exhausting” experience for her. The 36-year-old believes that while emotional preparation may be different from physical preparation for a task, it is challenging in its own way: “Sometimes when you do a heavy set of actions, it affects your body. Likewise, when you make a movie like this, it affects you mentally. “

However, she says that she has learned not to be affected by the weight of a character, as she explains, “She did not take me to dark places. I’m better equipped to handle it today. I am also better equipped to turn on and off and leave my work behind and not think about it when I get home. “I am able to maintain a balance of professional and personal life now.”

The drama of the relationship reminds many of Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006). At the time, Shah Rukh Khan’s protagonist might not have moved the audience, but Padukone believes the audience today is ready for Gehraiyaan. “There is definitely an audience for a film like this, where the story and the characters are as true as possible. Many of us get our marks from the public today. “And that’s why we are able to make the kind of films we make nowadays.”
