Mumbai, Jan 21: Bollywood star Deepika Padukone has given credits to the filmmaker Shakun Batra for creating a safe environment on the sets to film the intimate scenes in her latest movie ‘Gehraiyaan’.
The trailer of ‘Gehraiyaan’ was dropped yesterday on Youtube and it gained 11 million views within a day of its release. The viewers have seen a lot of intimate scenes in the trailer.
At the film’s virtual trailer event, Padukone said, “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 the way we have in this film. 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”.
It is pertinent to mention that it is the first time in Bollywood that the film’s makers have roped Dar Gai, a filmmaker, to serve as the intimacy director.
‘Gehraiyaan’ also stars Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday in the lead role. The film will be released on Amazon Prime on February 11.
