In just three films, Ananya Panday, 23, has shown that she will not be put into a box. Her latest, Gehraiyaan , tackles messy relationships and the drama that comes with them (the cast calls it ‘‘domestic noir”). Directed by Shakun Batra ( Kapoor & SonsEk Main Aur Ekk Tu ) for Amazon Prime Video, the movie also stars Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi. While we don’t see much of Panday’s character, Tia, in the recently-launched trailer, she says there’s a lot more to her role. “I won’t say I have experienced what she has been through, but we do share a lot of characteristics. Like being extremely loving and loyal in any relationship. Perhaps a little dependent and insecure as well…,” she trails off with a smile in a Zoom interview with  The Hindu Weekend .
