Deepika Padukone: Siddy (Siddhant Chaturvedi) simply posted one thing on our group, the 5 of us have a gaggle the place I feel the BMC (Brihanmumbai Company) has posted a meme in regards to the rubbish scene from our trailer and you already know your movie has gone viral once they’ve picked up one thing and made a meme out of it so I feel that is an amazing begin for us right this moment. So kudos to us!

Shakun Batra: There is a tandoori momo reel on Gehraiyaan.

Ananya Panday: Yeah , that is what I used to be gonna say.

Shakun Batra: It is a BMC put up. So I feel between BMC and tandoori momos…

Ananya Panday: …We’re sorted.

wantpassport: So Shakun you possibly can inform me, at any time when there is a group of pals, there’s one one that’s a bully and one who will get bullied. Right here on the display screen once we are watching, if I used to be to guess it’s Deepika, however you possibly can right me.

Shakun Batra: I do not suppose Deepika was a bully. I feel all of us had our totally different days. All of us took turns and to be sincere no person on this group is lesser than the opposite. We have all pulled pranks. We have all had our days. And everybody has been bullied in some unspecified time in the future.

wantpassport: Okay, is it? Deepika, I stated that as a result of I watched the trailer launch the place you requested Siddhant to affix him within the water, clearly that was not his scene.

Deepika Padukone: Yeah. I imply excuse me, I wasn’t bullying you, Sid. I meant it in a pleasant method like ‘come on Siddy, we’ll all maintain arms and we’ll do that collectively’ as a result of we have actually achieved every part collectively, proper from all of us reaching Goa on the identical day to doing our prep collectively, having our meals collectively, doing yoga collectively. Actually, you already know and there have been days when a number of the actors weren’t required however we’d present up, be on set, so now we have actually achieved every part collectively. So no, I am not a bully. Actually, I get bullied by the three of them fairly often.

Ananya Panday: By no means ever occurred.

Siddhant Chaturvedi: By no means occurred, yeah.

Deepika Padukone: There’s is sufficient BTS footage that might be put out in some unspecified time in the future.

Siddhant Chaturvedi: We’re scared proper now. We’re scared to say that she’s the bully of the group. Take a look at her.

Deepika Padukone: Guys. However I am glad you stated that you simply needed to start out this interview by preserving it mild and enjoyable as a result of that is actually who we’re. We barely by default made a heavier intense movie possibly, however I imply, we’re simply always laughing and guffawing and pulling one another’s leg.

wantpassport: Ananya, you already know what, it is a dream for lots of actors to work with Deepika. On the trailer launch she stated one thing very candy, she stated that you simply’re like her youthful child sister and also you’re youthful than her sister (Anisha Padukone) as nicely. What’s she like on the units?

Ananya Panday: I feel you name your sister additionally Annie (to Deepika) and that is why she used to name me additionally Annie and he or she used to at all times say that I am like her pretty youthful sister and that is why she used to at all times kiss me and hug me. In Deepika, the very first thing you at all times discover is that she’s heat and he or she’s affectionate and he or she exhibits that she’s affectionate, you already know. She’ll at all times hug everybody. She’ll kiss them on their cheek. She’ll maintain their hand. So in that method, she’s extraordinarily heat and I feel simply as an actor there was a whole lot of me to play off, simply when it comes to reacting to her in scenes. I feel for me, though I’ve liked each efficiency of her earlier than this, that is most likely my favorite character of hers since you’re seeing Deepika in a totally uncooked, actual, weak, and fragile method and I feel she appears lovely in that so I am actually excited for individuals to see her as Alisha.

wantpassport: Nice. Siddhant you inform us, how was this movie set totally different?

Siddhant Chaturvedi: I feel this was the most effective set experiences and the method was, I’ve by no means skilled one thing like that and I’ve by no means heard of one thing like that occur in any movie which I’ve adopted from the years. It was an unbelievable expertise, you already know, for a lifetime and I want that actors get to prep the way in which they need to. Give them their consolation zone and perceive that ease will truly extract one of the best efficiency and I feel Shakun may be very delicate to that. So it has been totally different and I am hoping that I get one thing like this very quickly however I am gonna cherish it for a life time.

wantpassport: Beautiful. Dhairya, you need to have seen their performances in numerous movies. Once we watch them on display screen we really feel like we all know all of them. Had been they every part you anticipated? You possibly can speak about every one.

Dhairya Karwa: It is extra. The whole lot that I anticipated is extra. they’re all fabulous actors and unanimously liked by everybody. You’ve got seen their performances and I am a giant fan of their work as nicely. However once you meet them what surprises is that, it is a widespread development that I have been seeing or not less than skilled in my profession, that each one the nice actors – and I have been lucky sufficient to work with a few them from Uri to 83 and now this – all the nice actors from my expertise or from what I’ve learnt are nice human beings as nicely. They’re so beneficiant and heat and type and are conscious and delicate. That is my studying and I wish to maintain it this fashion. That is how I need my outlook to be, that for a superb actor you need to be a superb human as nicely. So, that is a test for me to bear in mind for the longer term as nicely. And I’d prefer to consider it as nicely.

wantpassport: Shakun, you get the credit score to get all these individuals collectively and do a lovely movie with them. Do you write with actors in thoughts once you’re engaged on a narrative? Do you at all times have a actor in thoughts or there’s some juggling – is there scope for that?

Shakun Batra: Not proper at first however in some unspecified time in the future, as soon as I am 30% in, then I begin seeing individuals, I begin seeing faces and on this one, Deepika got here fairly early in my head. Additionally, Deepika and I have been hanging out as pals, we have met a bunch of occasions and I had began to see her early however I simply needed to jot down slightly extra to see the place issues go and as I wrote, issues began to change into concrete. I began to see her increasingly in it and from there, it simply adopted. Clearly Sid, I solely received to see once I noticed MC Sher (Siddhant’s character in Gully Boy) and Sid was comparatively youthful for the half. I initially wanted a barely older individual however I met him for dinner, simply coincidentally bumping into him, and we had a dialog and I used to be like, he did not really feel like MC Sher on the dinner desk. So I used to be like, if he can play MC Sher after which I noticed a number of the Inside Edges (the web-series Siddhant appeared in) and I noticed that he can remodel, he can actually change, and that he actually has that management on the graph that may remodel. That made me really feel much more comfy. Dhairya after all I noticed in a single audition. And Ananya and I met and we spoke and I knew she was very near what the character was after which it was just a bit extra of re-writing to ensure that everybody paired organically to the story. So it is slightly little bit of each. You think about somebody within the story and when you meet them, you alter your writing model slightly bit so you’re employed along with your writers to take it by means of who they’re.

wantpassport: Shakun, when Deepika took two days what had been you pondering? Two days I feel is truthful, proper?

Shakun Batra: As Karan (Johar, producer of Gehraiyaan) stated, I am anyhow a nervous individual. I panic very simply so I used to be pondering that she’s hated it sufficient and he or she has most likely switched off her cellphone and he or she’s by no means gonna see me once more. That is what I used to be pondering. I feel Karan has higher expertise with these items so he was like, you are simply overreacting, relax. After which two days later, Deepika and I spoke and it actually made my day that day. I felt good about the truth that we’re on the identical web page and we spoke about what we had been seeing, how we’re seeing the movie. So yeah, it was a superb day. I keep in mind that day once we spoke.

wantpassport: Deepika, do you wish to specific the method of these two days in order that filmmakers sooner or later do not get these jitters?

Deepika Padukone: No, you possibly can ask any filmmaker or author who has come to me and have narrated the story, I’ve this disclaimer proper at the beginning that I can’t react. , you are not going to get this prompt response from me, I do take a few days to only stay with it. Even when my intuition may very well be certainly one of two issues, it may very well be an prompt ‘sure,’ it may be an prompt ‘no.’ However both method, I’ve developed this strategy of not reacting there after which or making a choice within the spur of the second. I feel that is one thing I’ve discovered from my father. He has at all times taught me to not be impulsive in order that’s simply my strategy of simply dwelling with it and seeing whether or not if it is a story I’ve not preferred. , even two days later, three days later, is it nonetheless one thing that I do not like, is there one thing I am lacking? As a result of I really feel like, your profession is basically these decisions that you simply make ultimately and it was the identical with this. , I’ve preferred it, I’ve liked it and actually this was a type of uncommon narrations the place he had come absolutely ready with background music and each scene had some form of music taking part in to provide me a way to higher visualize about what this movie was going to be. So he did every part that he might on his half however I simply wanted that point. Perhaps he wasn’t prepared for that however I simply wanted that point to say, okay, am I prepared for this?

wantpassport: Ananya, signing, sitting again and pondering, not being impulsive – are you able to inform us about your course of? You stated on the trailer launch that you simply had been very excited since you received this however what’s your strategy of signing it?

Ananya Panday: I am the alternative. I am very impulsive as an individual and I get very excited as nicely. If I like one thing, I am like ‘sure sure sure’ with out even eager about something in that sense, and I often like most issues. My mother needed to truly purchase me a guide known as ‘The Artwork Of Saying No‘ as a result of I simply did not know and I nonetheless do not know methods to say a ‘no’ typically. I actually should make up these tales and kahanis as much as say a ‘no.’ I am a really impulsive individual however I am making an attempt, I’ve discovered loads from this movie truly about simply letting go slightly bit, being affected person and often the nice issues are available your life once you wait, so.

wantpassport: Dhairya, you already know should you had been planning to inform every other producer that you simply’re 6’2″… Karan has clearly (interrupted by Ananya Panday)

Ananya Panday: He is 6’4″

Dhairya Karwa: My secret is out, sir.

Deepika Padukone: Most actors are mendacity about their top they usually wish to appear taller after which once you truly see them, you are like, oh you are actually not that tall. And you’ve got an actor right here who’s achieved the exact opposite. He is lied about being shorter, you already know.

Ananya Panday: We needed to truly change the door body for Dhairya to slot in there.

Shakun Batra: Yeah, I am going to give future recommendation to all of the filmmakers who’ll signal him up. Simply inform your manufacturing designer to extend the peak of the door.

Dhairya Karwa: But in addition in regard to manufacturing designer and director, I’d say pretty under common top.

wantpassport: You possibly can say that about everybody truly.

Ananya Panday: Yeah, for you everybody’s brief.

Shakun Batra: We had a joke on the set on day 1 that if it wasn’t for Covid and we hadn’t needed to maintain it so small, I used to be about to name for a crane to not put the digital camera however myself in it so I might go up and down, to totally different heights to speak to those actors as a result of it was actually powerful as I used to be saying earlier. It was very laborious to return throughout when each actor is 10 inches taller than you. I imply I am not even joking, I stood upon a settee and I used to be nonetheless half an inch shorter than them so yeah.

wantpassport: So Siddhant, each interview we have achieved, you’ve got clarified that you simply’re not a rapper. Right this moment, I’ve heard that line within the trailer launch additionally. Does this nonetheless stick with you? Folks inform you to sing and rap.

Siddhant Chaturvedi: Yeah, yeah they do this loads. I’ve acquired this ability now, it will stay for lifetime. However yeah, possibly I am not a rapper. Folks will prefer to consider clearly as a result of the character (MC Sher in Gully Boy) is preferred by lots of people.

wantpassport: Deepika, Ananya stated pretty issues about you, you possibly can inform me about her. What’s she like? If you see her work, once you meet her and see her appearing in entrance of the digital camera. What’s she like?

Deepika Padukone: I feel I did not know her in any respect earlier than we began engaged on this movie and I suppose I knew as a lot about her as anybody else by way of social media and simply assembly at occasions and issues like that. And once I began working together with her, I’ve realized that she’s, and I do not imply this in enjoyable or joking method, however she extraordinarily clever for her age. And I feel that facet of her, both she hasn’t proven it sufficient or individuals simply do not give her sufficient credit score for that however she’s extraordinarily clever and in addition very observant. She’s always observing what different actors are doing. She’s an observant woman, She’s an clever woman, and he or she’s always eager to get higher and enhance. I used to be simply saying this some time in the past that a whole lot of the youthful lot I really feel, not simply actors however simply typically, there is a sense of that factor in regard with ‘we all know every part, we all know higher.’ I did not see that within the three of them in any respect. This kind of curiosity and keenness to be okay to make errors. And I feel that for me was the fascinating half, to find them as individuals as a result of I did not know any of them. I do not suppose any of us knew one another. However simply discovering one another as individuals and I’ve at all times seen their progress within the final, I will not even say two years. I would say within the one, one-and-a-half months we had been in Goa for filming. So from the day we landed and the day we began our prep to the time we completed a complete schedule and we got here again, I had seen progress and I had seen an evolution in all three of them. They’ve change into extra assured, they’ve matured. It was lovely to see that and I feel Shakun agrees with me. From the place we began and to the place we’re right this moment. Simply to see that journey. So yeah about Ananya, I really feel that she’s extraordinarily clever, she’s extraordinarily gifted, somebody I am going to at all times, at all times be there for her if she ever looks like she wants me.

Ananya Panday: So candy.
