Deepika Padukone opens up about shooting the intimate scenes in Gehraiyaan, says, ‘It is not easy’
The internet cannot stop raging about the electric chemistry between Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi in the Gehraiyaan trailer. Deepika is seen playing the character of a girl named Alisha who falls for her cousin’s fiance- played by Siddhant in a twisted series of events. Recently, at the trailer launch of Gehraiyaan, Deepika Padukone opened up about her intimate scenes in the movie which she believed were ‘not easy’.
Deepika said during the virtual press conference as per PTI, “Shakun gave me and all of us the comfort, you feel safe and secure because intimacy is not easy. It is not something that we ever experienced or explored in Indian cinema before in a way we have in this film.”
She further added, “So, to go down that route of intimacy and vulnerability is possible when you know the director is not doing it for eyeballs. Because that is where the characters are coming from, their experience and journey. It is possible when you feel safe and secure in the environment.”
Shakun Batra had brought an intimacy director on board to film those scenes as he wanted to treat it like a character, Shakun said, “We were treating intimacy like a story and we want to see it like a character. So, the prep and the detailing was required. It was important we have an intimacy director. And Dar Gai has contributed a lot to the film. It is important to give her the same respect as we give to all HODs.”
