Amidst the spate of new COVID-19 cases to hit both Bollywood and the country in general, the latest we hear to unfortunately join the list of those afflicted with Omicron variant of COVID19 is the crew of Gehraiyaan, including several ADs. A well-placed source within the industry has exclusively revealed to BollywoodLife that several ADs of Director Shakun Batra have tested positive for COVID-19, which is why the team is likely to postpone a promotional campaign they had planned for Gehraiyaan. And though it hasn't been revealed whether lead actors Deepika Padukone, Ananya Panday and Siddhant Chaturvedi have tested positive for coronavirus or not, there's also no word on if they haven't.
Earlier, the makers of had Gehraiyaan announced that the movie was skipping its theatrical release and opting instead for the OTT route, going straight to Amazon Prime. The Shakun Batra directorial, starring Deepika Padukone, Ananya Panday, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Dhairya Karwa, Naseeruddin Shah and Rajat Kapur, and produced by Karan Johar, will begin streaming on Amazon Prime from 25th January 2022 onward.
Jointly produced by Dharma Productions and Viacom18 Studios in association with Shakun Batra’s Jouska Films, Gehraiyaan is an adult relationship drama that dives into the depths of complex modern ties, adulting, letting go and taking control of one's life path. Dharma Productions had
shared a small teaser for the movie along with some BTS stills on its official Twitter handle. Check them out below:
If the news of multiple crew members of Gehraiyaan testing positive for COVID 19 is indeed true, we wish them all a quick and full recovery.
