Prior to the actors' strike, Zendaya dug deeply into the complexities of relationships, sensuality, and personal growth in the film, all while navigating the hard world of tennis and competition.
According to sources, the film's director, Luca Guadagnino, who is famed for his ability to portray sensuality through subtle nuances, promises a thought-provoking encounter that defies standard genre limits.
Fans of Zendaya's boyfriend, Tom Holland, were irritated by the film's steamy teaser. Following criticism for her 'R-rated' scenes, the actress has now spoken out about the concept of sensuality in her upcoming film.
Zendaya recently spoke with Empire Magazine on the film's philosophical complexity and the intricacies of sensuality in "Challengers."
"There's so much in just glances," Zendaya said. The tension rises. Sometimes not having the release is a good thing."
Furthermore, Zendaya's co-stars Mike Faist and Josh O'Conner confirmed her comments, emphasizing the film's unique and genre-defying nature.
"This [movie] is not an easy thing to take on," Faist said of it. It has no genre. "I'm having trouble explaining it," she said, emphasizing the genre uncertainty.
