Siddhant Chaturvedi reacts to comments about seeking Ranveer Singh’s permission before doing intimate scenes in Gehraiyaan with Deepika Padukone


Siddhant Chaturvedi has spoken up about his intimate scenes with Deepika Padukone in Gehraiyaan and whether the actress should have sought husband Ranveer Singh’s permission before doing the scenes. Siddhant has said that he was not bothered by the comments made by netizens and the fact that he is on great terms with Ranveer alongside whom he debuted in Gully Boy.

During a conversation with an online portal, when Siddhant was asked whether comments suggesting he and Deepika needed Ranveer’s permission angered him, he said, “It doesn’t actually, because we are professionals, we know our equation. I remember when we were shooting for this film, Ranveer had come to Goa for a few days. We chilled, we partied. In fact, when I signed the film, he was the first person I called and he was really happy. He has just been showering me with love since Gully Boy and he is my mentor in life, so it was absolutely fine. Deepika is a professional. When people say these things, kya kar sakte hai (what can one do)? Hum toh apna kaam kar rahe hai (We are just doing our job).”

He further said that they were just following director Shakun Batra’s direction and said, “I think we did it in the most elegant way with an intimacy director Dar (Gai) coming on board. It took a little time for me as well to ease into it but it was very important because it was not supposed to be for shock value. It was a part of the film. Now that you have watched the film, you know that it’s not forced or anything. It’s there because it’s part of the story.”

Gehraiyaan released on Amazon Prime Video and also stars Ananya Panday and Dhairya Karwa.
