Shakun Batra: Deepika Padukone and Naseeruddin Shah are terrific actors

A still from Gehraiyaan


Director Shakun Batra whose film Gehraiyaan has been making news, says he accepts both the praise as well as the criticism coming his way.


One scene that has touched many is Deepika Padukone learning the truth about her father played by Naseeruddin Shah. Speaking about the scene Shakun says, “When we first shot it, it was a much shorter scene. One of my co-writers Ayesha (Devitre) looked at it and said ‘this scenes needs to be more.’ She did a draft of it with Yash who is also part of the writing team. She was the champion to take the scene to a good point. Then a night before, I remember talking to my girlfriend about the scene, she had points and notes. Next morning, I went to the set and I was playing with the scene till half an hour before we shot it. Then it was just magic because Deepika (Padukone) and Naseer (Shah) are terrific actors.”
