Deepika Padukone On Filming Intimate Scenes In Movie Gehraiyaan
Deepika Padukone talks about filming intimate scenes with her co-star in Gehraiyaan. She took inspiration from her own experiences.
The character of Alisha is far different from what we used to see in Bollywood. Gehraiyaan is a romance drama exploring the theme of infidelity. Deepika is playing the character Alisha who happens to be in a monotonous relationship.
The short trailer gave us a glimpse of Alisha’s life before she decided to cheat. Deepika has played Alisha precisely making it raw and relatable. Alisha thinks about her life as she compares it with her cousin Tia (played by Ananya Panday).
Many people are constantly talking about the intimate scenes between Siddhant Chaturvedi and Deepika Padukone. Obviously, the intimacy director has done her job pretty well in the movie but in the end, it is an actor’s job to perform the scenes.
Deepika Padukone On Preparing For The Character Of Alisha
Deepika opened up about her intimate scenes in the movies. She said, “I don’t think it would be possible without the comfort that he [director Shakun Batra] has given all of us. You feel you are working in an extremely safe and secure environment because intimacy is not easy. It is not something that we have ever experienced or explored in Indian cinema before, in the way we have in this film.”
She added, “I think, for me, this character is a lot rawer and a lot more real than some of the other characters that I have played. Emotionally, it is completely stripped and naked in that sense, and completely vulnerable. I think to be able to do that on screen, it has to come from a very deep place. It is not to say that I haven’t experienced that before. But, not to this extent, where I have to really dig deep and go to the places that aren’t really that pleasant and are not really pleasant experiences from my own life.”
The official synopsis of Gehraiyaan reads – Alisha Khanna, 30, ambitious, now finds herself at a crossroads in life. Her six-year-long relationship has grown monotonous, her career seems to be hitting a lot of roadblocks and just when she had begun to accept this reality as unchangeable, her life is usurped by the arrival of her cousin, Tia, and her fiancé, Zain, with whom she bonds over a troubled past and a common wish to break from its confines.
The story charts the journey of Alisha and Zain, as they confront the ghost of their past on the path they take to avoid it.
Gehraiyaan will release on Amazon Prime Video on February 11, 2022.
