As the upcoming film of Shakun Batra is getting shot, Sidharth Chaturvedi shares his experience of working with Deepika Padukone. He told a leading daily that he was nervous shooting with her at first, but later found out her to be a simple person. "Deepika is extremely talented. She is one of our senior actresses and the prettiest, and yes, I was quite nervous to share the screen space with her. I was wondering how it would go before the shoot commenced, but it went off really well. She is extremely simple and we got along well," he said.
In an earlier interview, Deepika had talked about the film and said, "To be honest, you can’t call Shakun’s film ‘light’ either... Although the overall tonality of the film is slightly lighter than my last film, in terms of inner, emotional turmoil my character goes through, it’s quite challenging. The overall genre of the film is something we haven’t seen much in Indian cinema, it’s called domestic noir."
"I don’t think that’s a genre we are very familiar with, but at the same time the audience is completely ready for it, as we have been exposed to that genre in different ways, whether through Hollywood films or OTT platforms. What I enjoy and look forward to, as far as this film is concerned, Shakun has this strong point with people and relationships. As an audience/ actor I have enjoyed watching and performing these sorts of films, whether Piku (2015), Tamasha (2015), Love Aaj Kal, films that deal with intricate human relationships," she concluded.
