'Gehraiyaan,' starring Deepika Padukone, Siddhant Chaturvedi, and Ananya Pandey, is Shakun Batra's latest film. The film, which investigates modern relationships centered on infidelity, and has garnered mixed reviews from professionals and the general public.

Shakun Batra recently opened up about receiving both hateful and appreciative emails from fans in response to the film.

During a recent interview with a film critic, he disclosed that he had received emails criticizing the picture with harsh Hindi cuss words. 

One of the emails even questioned his filmmaking abilities, he revealed with lines like 'B****d picture banani nahi aati hai to kyun banata hai? Kuch aur kar leta (Why do you even make a film when you don’t know how to make it? Do something else.’

Having stated that, he went on to share positive feedback from all across the world. One of them was a fan letter from Brisbane's psychologist, who praised the characters in the film. 

Shakun Batra also said that he has now made peace in his mind with two separate opinions about his film after reacting to both nice and unpleasant words. 

"But, forget about the movie; I think it's a sign of my growth that I've embraced the polarisation." 

He was also cited as saying, 

"I think I've grown."

Gehraiyaan premiered on OTT almost two weeks ago and continues to be the talk of the town. For the unversed, on Sunday night, Deepika organised a success bash for the film’s cast and crew. Several images and videos from the party have been doing the rounds on the internet.
