Gunday Teaser: Arjun Kapoor misses Priyanka Chopra

The first teaser of ‘Gunday’ is released and it is surprising that the leading lady of the movie, Priyanka Chopra is missing from the teaser.

The teaser has gathered positive response from the viewers. Actually the teaser is all about the two leading heroes, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor. The trailer tells the background story of India Bangladesh partition. It shows how two refuges come to India and how to grow up under odd circumstances to become coal mafia and later two big ‘Gundays’. The trailer is impactful. Both the leading actors seem to be giving powerful performances.

Well, the absence of Priyanka Chopra from the teaser hints towards a growing trend in which the actress is introduced in the subsequent trailers. In the first trailers of both ‘Dhoom 3’ and ‘Krrish 3’, the leading ladies were conspicuous by their absence. It was in the later trailers that the actresses were shown. “In fact this seems to be a trend of sorts when it comes to leading ladies these days, especially for films that are dominated by the leading men”, says an observer. The observer further said, “In the teaser promo of ‘Krrish 3’, Priyanka just had a shot or two. Ditto was the case for Katrina Kaif when the First Look of ‘Dhoom 3’ came out. Now for Gunday as well, the makers have seemingly taken a conscious call to highlight only their ‘gunday’.”

Whereas, there are movies like ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’ and ‘Ram Leela’ where the leading ladies were visible from the first teaser itself. It can be argued that since both these movies were about relationship between the leading pair, the leading ladies were considered in the promos.

A source close to the film said, “Well, for that matter, Priyanka too is an integral part of Gunday. She would be highlighted prominently very soon. What we have seen is just a teaser so far and since the film has Ranveer and Arjun as Gunday, it made sense to unveil them first.”

Priyanka is totally unperturbed by her absence from the teaser. She was seen in a happy mood during the launch of the first teaser. She was asked about her absence from the trailer. Priyanka said wittily, “It's okay, achchi cheez ka intezaar karna padta hai.”

Even Arjun missed Priyanka in the teaser. He said, “I am also missing Priyanka Chopra. This is a promotional strategy that YRF has designed. It will be unfair on my part to comment. We are still two and a half months away from the release.”
