Bhaskar Rao, the Additional Director General of Police, Railways, labelled Deepika Padukone’s new movie “Gehraiyaan’ “an affront” on February 13th, two days after it was released. The former Police Commissioner claimed he couldn’t watch the film for more than 20 minutes and had to stop.
From August 2019 to August 2020, Bhaskar Rao, an Indian Police Service Officer from the 1990 batch, served as the Commissioner of Bengaluru City. The 57-year-old Police Officer also worked as the Assistant Director General of Police in the Karnataka State Reserve Police as well as the Assistant Director General of Police, Internal Security Division.
Bhaskar Rao, like Deepika Padukone, is from Bengaluru and describes himself as a fan of the actress. He claims, however, that he had to stop viewing the movie after only 20 minutes.
Gehraiyaan sends a “very wrong message” to millions of her fans and other citizens, according to the ADGP. Infidelity, extramarital affairs, insecurity, anxiety, traumatic history, and other challenging subjects were discussed in Gehraiyaan. While some younger viewers enjoyed the film, Mr. Rao believes it romanticised adulterous relationships and household destruction, sending an incorrect message to the public. He also criticized Deepika for her role in the movie.
As promised by the trailer, Gehraiyaan, starring Deepika Padukone, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Dhairya Karwa, and Ananya Panday, is a drama about love, trust, betrayal, and difficult relationships.
The film’s trailer created quite a buzz on the internet, with fans anxiously expecting Gehraiyaan’s debut. The film’s producers surprised audiences by releasing it on the OTT platform Amazon Prime hours before its scheduled release date on Thursday.
