“We are just doing our job.”

Siddhant Chaturvedi has opened up about filming intimate scenes in his latest release Gehraiyaan.

The actor also reacted to trolls who wanted him and Deepika Padukone to seek her husband Ranveer Singh’s “permission” before agreeing to perform intimate scenes together.

In a recent interview, Siddhant said that he was not bothered by those comments.

The actor made his feature film debut with Gully Boy opposite Ranveer Singh.

Siddhant said that comments suggesting he and Deepika needed Ranveer’s permission did not make him angry and explained his stance.

He said: “It doesn’t actually anger him, 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, what can one do?

“We are just doing our job.”

In Shakun Batra’s Gehraiyaan, Deepika Padukone’s Alisha has an affair with Siddhant Chaturvedi’s Zain.

Siddhant added that he and Deepika were simply going with Shakun’s vision and that their job was made easy with intimacy director Dar Gai’s direction.

He 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.”

Ranveer was impressed by Deepika’s performance in Gehraiyaan.

Calling her performance “dazzling”, Ranveer said: “Everywhere I go, people are just talking about how dazzling you were in this film!

“You deserve every bit of it, my Jaan!

“What an extraordinary artist you are! Breathtaking portrayal. It’s magic, pure magic.”

Deepika has called the audience’s response to her performance “dizzying”.

The Om Shanti Om actress took to Instagram earlier to express her gratitude.

Sharing a series of stills from the film, Deepika wrote in the post:

“The response to Gehraiyaan has been dizzying, to say the least! ‘Alisha’ has been my most visceral, indelible and delicious experience as an artist.

“While I am ecstatic and overwhelmed, I am also truly grateful and humbled!”

Gehraiyaan, also starring Ananya Panday and Dhairya Karwa is streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
