Intimacy director is a concept that has been worked on in the West for centuries. But here in B’Town, Shakun Batra directed Gehraiyaan welcomes it with open arms. Actress Deepika Padukone now tells how important it is and why it was necessary! Scroll below for details.

Gehraiyaan is a film that revolves around the complexity of relationships. The film also explores the sensitive subject of infidelity. There are multiple intimate scenes in the film and everything was arranged under the expertise of an intimacy director.

But for a layman to understand, how different would the film be without it? Deepika Padukone says: “I don’t think we could make a movie like Gehraiyaan without a director for intimacy. Is it like making a Rohit Shetty movie without an action director? Or how do I do the Ghoomar song without a choreographer.”

Deepika Padukone continued: “In the past, actors were just thrown in at the deep end and expected to perform. Especially in this film, it was approached in a very professional way, as it should be. I kind of look at it the same way as a action or dance film where you need actors or directors for specific requirements. What it does is it gives the actor a sense of confidence and comfort to perform because you have rehearsed. You know exactly what you are getting into. way we rehearse for 2 or 10 days before we record a song or an action scene, it’s exactly the same!”

Well, kudos to team Gehraiyaan for getting this done with such professionalism.

Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday and Dhairya Karwa also star in the film. It witnessed its big premiere on Amazon Prime Video today (February 11).
