“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to play a role that was fun and challenging at the same time.
“Each of the characters’ struggles and arcs is real, raw and relatable.
“Our endeavour is to take viewers on a journey they will relate to.”

Deepika said: “When it comes to dealing with relationships and human emotion, Shakun is truly a master of his craft.
“With Gehraiyaan, again, he has woven a story that will appeal to all and I am thrilled that along with Amazon Prime Video we are able to take this story to audiences worldwide.”
Siddhant Chaturvedi described the film’s release on Amazon as a homecoming, given that he started his acting journey with the Amazon web series The Inside Edge.
The actor said: “In a manner, this seems like coming back home to me.
“I started my journey as an actor with Amazon Prime Video and now Gehraiyaan, a film I am so incredibly proud of will premiere worldwide on Amazon Prime Video!”
