On Sunday (8th November), Actors Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi were spotted shooting in Mumbai for Shakun Batra‘s upcoming film. The film also stars Ananya Panday in the lead role. The film’s crew returned to Mumbai after completing the first schedule in Goa. Originally the film was meant to be shot in Sri Lanka but due to current coronavirus pandemic, it had to be stalled.

A source revealed to Mumbai Mirror on why Goa was chosen over Sri Lanka, “The delay gave Shakun time to work on the script. Since shooting in Sri Lanka is not feasible, they changed the setting to Goa which has a similar landscape of beaches and vintage churches.”

On Sunday’s shoot, Deepika and Siddhant were spotted having a conversation while standing on a balcony of a multi-storeyed building. Deepika was seen dressed casually in a pair of blue jeans and a white T-shirt with her hair done in a top knot. Siddhant was also casually dressed.

Earlier while talking about her role in the film, Deepika told Hindustan Times, “To be honest, you can’t call Shakun’s film ‘light’ either… Although the overall tonality of the film is slightly lighter than my last film, in terms of inner, emotional turmoil my character goes through, it’s quite challenging. The overall genre of the film is something we haven’t seen much in Indian cinema, it’s called domestic noir. I don’t think that’s a genre we are very familiar with, but at the same time, the audience is completely ready for it, as we have been exposed to that genre in different ways, whether through Hollywood films or OTT platforms. What I enjoy and look forward to, as far as this film is concerned, Shakun has this strong point with people and relationships. As an audience/ actor I have enjoyed watching and performing these sort of films, whether Piku (2015), Tamasha (2015), Love Aaj Kal, films that deal with intricate human relationships.”
