The title and release date of Shakun Batra’s highly anticipated film, starring Deepika Padukone, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday, and Dhairya Karwa, were announced over a week ago. The film, titled Gehraiyaan, is planned to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on January 25, 2022. The audience reacted positively to the film’s teaser. The film’s trailer was planned to be released in Alibaug next week, according to the producers. However, due to an increase in COVID-19 instances in the country, they have chosen not to go ahead with it.
On Saturday, the city of Mumbai saw nearly 6000 instances. With everyone’s safety in mind, the filmmakers opted not to hold a big ceremony for the film’s trailer release. While the event has been cancelled, the filmmakers have pledged to post the trailer as soon as possible, and the film will be released on time. In an official statement, Amazon Prime Video said, “Owing to the current surge in Covid-19 cases, we have decided to take an alternate route for the trailer launch of our upcoming title, Gehraiyaan. We won’t be doing the trailer launch in Alibaug as originally planned. We are, however, looking forward to bringing the trailer to you.”
Talking about the film, director Shakun Batra had earlier said, “Gehraiyaan for me is not just a movie. It is a journey into the intricacies of human relationships, it is a mirror into modern adult relationships, how we traverse through the maze of feelings and emotions and how each step, each decision we make affects our lives and the lives of those around. I am immensely glad to have taken this journey with the incredible team and Dharma Productions, the exceptionally talented cast and crew, and now Amazon Prime Video. I believe audiences will relate to this film very closely and I am looking forward to receiving the reactions from the audiences across the globe.”
