Former Police Commissioner Bhaskar Rao Slams Deepika Padukone's Gehraiyaan, Says He Stopped Watching After 20 Mins
ADGP Bhaskar Rao shares his review about Gehraiyaan by Shakun Batra saying that the film gives the wrong message to fans depicting the concept of extramarital affairs.
MUMBAI: The latest romantic drama Gehraiyaan has been receiving mixed reviews since its release in Amazon Prime Video on 11 February.
This time the former police commissioner of Bengaluru Bhaskar Rao took to Twitter to share his review about the film starring actress Deepika Padukone.
His reviews seem to be very negative as he slammed Deepika Padukone saying that she is idolized by millions of young women as Courageous and Icon Achiever but he found the film very offensive.
Rao mentioned that he started watching Gehraiyaan but later after 20 minutes he stopped the film out of his dislike because of the indignity.
He said that he is a fan of Deepika, the Bengaluru girl but the film is disappointing to him as it portrays really wrong message with the extramarital and destruction of the home concept.
At the end of his tweet, the former police commissioner questioned that 'Am I old fashion.' According to the ADGP, Gehraiyaan sends a bad message to millions of fans and citizens watching the film.
Criticizing the actress for her role, Rao expresses his dislike over Deepika for such a depiction of extramarital affairs, insecurity, cheating and other challenging ideas.
57-year-old Bhaskar Rao who worked as the commissioner of Bengaluru city is originally from Bengaluru, an Indian Police Service Officer from the 1990 batch. He had also served as the Assistant Director Gen of police in Karnataka State Reserve Police.
The film directed by Shakun Batra starring Siddhant Chaturvedi, Deepika Padukone, Ananya Pandey and Dhairya Karwa shows two couples getting lost in different paths and cheating their partner.
In the film, Deepika appears to be in relation with Dhairya but their bond sees a turning point with the entry of Siddhant who is already in a romantic relationship with Ananya playing as Deepika's cousin. Deepika and Siddhant decide just to go with the flow without realizing the actual truth.
The film though criticized by many for its lack of humour but there are also reviews that show people are loving it and the performances by Deepika in the film.
