Gehraiyaan is a modern-day take on the complexities of an urban-based relationship. How love is not as simple as the Hindi films show it to be, the trailer, as Karan Johar, the producer of the film said in the trailer launch, just scratches the surface of the film.

Padukone revealed during the launch how she ended up being Alisha in a Shakun Batra, directed and co-produced film. She was filming in London for the Kabir Khan film 83, in which she acted as Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev and also co-produced. It was during that time when Batra flew down to London and gave her a narration for the film.

“It did not feel like a director narrating but a friend coming over. This script has evolved a lot. He had trusted me and I had faith in him. I never doubted or second-guessed his sensibilities,” she said.

Johar said that Batra had become anxious when she did not reply faster to the narration. Then Johar called her and she agreed and said that the reason for the lateness was because she was overwhelmed with the script and it took her a while to process.

Talking about her character, Padukone said, “You have never seen me play a character like this or any Indian actor. India has not seen a film like this. This is really first. Batra has really being the observer and watching different kinds of people and relationships without judgement. Like Siddhant said that there is no reference point, so one has to really dig deep.”

The film has been much-awaited since its teaser launch on Padukone’s birthday with a short track of Tu Maarz Hai Dua Bhi… which has taken over the Instagram reels, short video feature of the social media. The film made the headline for giving credits to its intimate director, Dar Gai, making it the first Bollywood film to do so.
