Bollywood actress Ananya Panday has been creating a lot of buzz these days owing to her upcoming movie Gehraiyaan.
Helmed by Shakun Batra, the movie also stars Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi and has been among the most anticipated releases of the year. The drama which deals with complex relationships, is one of the most awaited.
To note, The Pati Patni Aur Woh actress will be seen playing the role of Tia, whose fiancé cheats on her with her cousin. While her performance in the trailer has already left the audience wanting for more, Ananya called it the most emotionally fleshed out characters she had played.
Ananya, while talking about the same, told a news portal,
“I am only 23. So, it’s not fair to say that I have been through something like this. This is probably one of the most emotionally fleshed-out characters I have played. It was cathartic to play a role like this because I had to draw a lot from myself. I had to tap into my emotions, and [explore] them in depth. Once you go past the barrier where you wonder what people are thinking, and explore your most vulnerable side, only the best in you comes out”.
The Student of The Year 2 actress also emphasised that they aren’t propagating infidelity with the movie.
She further added,
“The choice we all made was to observe this relationship rather than judge it. Just because the film has the concept of infidelity, it doesn’t mean we are endorsing or glorifying it. We are merely observing four characters, their reactions and complexities. It was important for us not to judge the relationship. We are leaving it to the audience, and are keen to know their perspective on it”.
Meanwhile, Ananya is over the moon for collaborating with Deepika for the first time and has been all praises for her.
“I always looked up to her as an actor, but now I’ve started loving her for the person she is. She makes sure no one feels left out. She doesn’t make anyone feel overwhelmed, and is warm and loving”.
Ananya's intense act in the trailer also left fans impressed. The film, directed by Shakun Batra, is all set to premiere on February 11, 2022 on Amazon Prime Video. The film is backed by Karan Johar and also stars Naseeruddin Shah and Rajat Kapoor.
