"A piece of my heart..."
On her 36th birthday, Deepika Padukone shared some new posters from her upcoming film Gehraiyaan.
In one of the posters, Deepika Padukone can be seen in an embrace with her co-star Siddhant Chaturvedi.
The other posters of the film’s cast include Ananya Panday and Dhairya Karwa.
Sharing the posters with her 63.5 million Instagram followers, Deepika wrote:
“A little birthday present for all the love you have showered us with!”
Gehraiyaan has been described as a drama about complex, modern relationships and also features Naseeruddin Shah and Rajat Kapur in pivotal roles.
The official synopsis of Gehraiyaan reads:
“Directed by the very talented Shakun Batra, the much-awaited movie looks beneath the surface of complex modern relationships, adulting, letting go and taking control of ones’ life path.”
Deepika also revealed the film’s revised release date.
Gehriyaan, which was earlier slated to release on January 25, 2022, will now stream on February 11 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
The character posters also revealed the name of the main leads.
Deepika Padukone plays Alisha, while Siddhant Chaturvedi essays the role of Zain.
Zain is presumably married to Ananya Panday’s character who plays Tia in the film.
The posters have since gone viral and have amassed over 1.3 million likes.
The film’s director Shakun Batra also shared the new posters.
He wrote: “Life is good and it does get better when you wait, but for now here is something for you.”
In December 2021, the cast of Gehraiyaan shared the film’s teaser.
Alongside the teaser, Deepika wrote: “A piece of my heart…”
Siddhant Chaturvedi said: “They say you leave pieces of yourself in everything you love. Maybe you’ll find my heart here.”
Ananya Panday added: “It’s time to dive in a little deeper.”
The filming of Shakun Batra’s relationship-drama film began in 2020.
Deepika, alongside her co-stars, was frequently spotted travelling to and from Goa, Mumbai and Alibaug for the film’s shoot.
The film is jointly produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Viacom18 Studios in association with Batra’s Jouska Films.
Apart from Gehraiyaan, Deepika Padukone has many projects in the pipeline including Fighter and the Hindi remake of The Intern.
Meanwhile, both fans and celebrities wished the actress on her 36th birthday.
Bollywood celebrities such as Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma and Sara Ali Khan took to social media to wish the actress.
Newly-wed Katrina Kaif shared a picture of Deepika on her Instagram Story and extended her wishes.
Alongside the picture, she wrote: “Happy birthday to Deepika Padukone. May this year be only full of health, peace and happiness.”
