News Portal Called Out For Sexist Headline On Deepika & Siddhant’s ‘Gehraiyaan’ Poster

Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi starrer film ‘Gehraiyaan’, which highlights the drama behind a complicated relationship, has been making headlines for all the right reasons. The movie was lauded by desis online for giving due credit to intimacy director Dar Gai on its poster.

The team released the official poster of the film on Padukone’s birthday. In one of the posters, Deepika and Siddhant were seen lovingly engrossed in each other while cuddling and lip-locking. It also showcases the flirtatious WhatsApp chats of each of the characters hinting at a possible love triangle in the movie.

While their act didn’t come out as obscene or uncomfortable, it was a headline published by a digital news portal that made many uneasy. The headline by InformalNewz read:

“Deepika Padukone was seen locking her lips with her husband Ranveer’s co-star.”

The headline referred to Deepika’s husband Ranveer’s collab with Siddhant in the movie ‘Gully Boy’ back in 2019. I mean, why did someone feel the need to include Ranveer here when he has no ties with the movie whatsoever?

Yes, I know. We all have a lot to say here. But let’s see what people online said of this wonderfully written headline that has ‘patriarchal and regressive mindset’ written all over it.

That’s it. I would like to leave you here and focus on the steaming hot chemistry between the two class actors, a refreshing jodi, that is making heads turn.
