Ananya Panday said that no one on the set made her feel like she was new to the industry. The work experience she gained while working on the film would help her in the future.
She also spoke very high about Shakun Batra and expressed her will to work with him on more projects in future.
Ananya said, “Shakun is a dream director for me. I’m a huge fan of his previous work and I was hoping and praying for a chance to work with him. I was drawn to how real, grey and complex the characters were. It was all in the writing for me — everything felt so honest and natural. I felt there was a lot I could borrow of myself for the part.” Further, talking about working with Deepika, Siddhant, Ananya said, “If I’ve learned anything, it’s that acting is a lot of reacting. So, on the contrary, it’s always a blessing to have stronger performances opposite you to feed. The whole team was working in synergy, and we were like a family where no one made me feel like I was new in any way.”
Ananya received a lot of love from the industry as well as her friends and fans when the Gehraiyaan teaser came out. The film is a complex relationship drama that also stars Dhairya Karwa, Naseeruddin Shah and Rajat Kapur. It is backed by Dharma Productions and will release on Amazon Prime Video on February 11, 2022.
