Fresh casting

Deepika Padukone will be completing 15 years in Bollywood in 2022 and for the first time ever, she will be paired opposite freshers Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday and Dhairya Karwa, who are just a few films old. According to the rushes, Deepika and Siddhant are paired together. Young actors Ananya and Dhairya add a dash of freshness, tenderness and innocence to the story.

A look at complex modern relationships

Bollywood has told several stories on relationships. But Gehraiyaan lets go of the typical narrative and delves deeper into something that has rarely been explored- modern relationships. The film promises to take us deep into the complex web of modern relationships and highlight the problems faced by the new generation couples.

Sizzling chemistry

Let's admit that Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi's sizzling hot and passionate kiss in the teaser made us gasp for breath. The actress flaunts her toned abs and set the mercury soaring on a picturesque beach. Ananya and Siddhant's kiss also attracts eyeballs and curiosity. 

Explores the domestic noir genre

Gehraiyaan takes an unusual route by exploring the domestic noir genre. It is a contemporary genre. Stories that fit into this bracket are majorly told from the female protagonist's viewpoint and feminist views generally form the base. 

Shakun Batra's style of storytelling

Shakun Batra needs no introduction. Though he has directed only two films (Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu and Kapoor & Sons) before Gehraiyaan, they were widely acclaimed and popular among the audience. There are a few filmmakers who address the topic of complicated relationships affectively and sensitively and Shakun is one of them.
