Vaani
Kapoor
is
basking
on
incredibly
positive
reviews
for
her
acting
skills
and
her
brave
decision
to
play
the
role
a
trans-woman
on
screen
in

Chandigarh
Kare
Aashiqui
.
She
has
received
unanimous
acclaim
for
sensitively
portraying
the
role
of
Maanvi
Brar,
a
trans-woman
who
stands
up
and
fights
for
her
rights.
The
actress
hopes
that
the
impact
of

Chandigarh
Kare
Aashiqui

is
in
enabling
future
representation
of
transgender
community
in
films.

Vaani
says,
“For
me,
when

Chandigarh
Kare
Aashiqui

came
to
me,
I
was
blown
away
by
the
script
because
it
sensitively
spoke
about
the
need
for
inclusivity
but
told
the
story
in
the
most
engaging
way
possible.
Hats
off
to
Abhishek
Kapoor
for
making
a
film
that
is
accessible
for
people
and
can
appeal
to
every
human
being,
in
every
part
of
the
country.
We
have
to
first
pull
in
people
to
watch
such
films
so
that
they
can
ponder
over
what
we
are
trying
to
say
and
that,
I
believe,
can
hopefully
aid
in
changing
society
at
large.”

Vaani Kapoor On Doing Limited Films In Seven Years: I Know Very Well What I Do Not Want To DoVaani
Kapoor
On
Doing
Limited
Films
In
Seven
Years:
I
Know
Very
Well
What
I
Do
Not
Want
To
Do

She
adds,
“I
hope
the
impact
of

Chandigarh
Kare
Aashiqui

is
in
enabling
future
films
and
producers
so
that
representation
of
transgender
people
playing
such
roles
is
achieved.
I
hope
that
after
this
film
no
cis-het
actress
ever
plays
the
role
of
a
trans-woman
and
we
can
cast
people
from
the
community
to
play
such
roles.
That
was
the
aim
of
Chandigarh
Kare
Aashiqui
right
from
the
start
because
to
change
the
mindset
that
has
been
prevalent
for
so
long,
you
have
to
engage
with
people
en
masse
and
tell
them
about
the
importance
of
celebrating
individuality
and
the
freedom
to
choose
one’s
gender.”

Vaani Kapoor Feels Connected To Hrithik Roshan As An Actor & A Person; Says 'I Feel Like I Function Like Him'Vaani
Kapoor
Feels
Connected
To
Hrithik
Roshan
As
An
Actor
&
A
Person;
Says
‘I
Feel
Like
I
Function
Like
Him’

While
people
have
called
her
decision
to
do
the
film
as
a
brave
one,
Vaani
feels
the
intent
of
the
film
is
what
drove
her
to
take
the
plunge.

She
says,
“I
didn’t
think
that
I
would
be
perceived
brave
if
I
did
this
film.
As
an
actor,
I
have
only
tried
to
do
good
work
and
be
patient
to
find
scripts
that
enables
me
to
become
a
reliable
credible
actor.
Today,
I
feel
validated
that
I
chose
a
film
that
has
started
an
important
conversation
about
our
society
and
told
us
to
look
inwards
and
dissect
the
gaze
with
which
we
address
the
issues
of
the
transgender
community
in
our
country.”

Vaani
will
be
seen
next
in
Karan
Malhotra’s
big
screen
spectacle

Shamshera

opposite
Ranbir
Kapoor.
Shamshera
will
release
on
March
18,
2022.
