Vani Kapoor made her Bollywood debut in 2013 with Sushant Singh Rajput-starrer Shuddh Desi Romance, which earned her critical acclaim though the film didn’t do well at the box office. Three years later, she starred opposite Ranveer Singh in Aditya Chopra’s Befikre, which also did not help her career.
The actor has, however, put the failure of Befikre behind her as she has director Sidharth Anand’s film with Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff and Shamshera with Ranbir Kapoor in her kitty. “My patience has finally paid off,” Vani beams as she sits down for an interview with indianexpress.com.
“I feel blessed as finally my patience has paid off and I didn’t go and do something which could have been a baggage for these films. There are certain filmmakers who look at the kind of work you have been a part of or if you come with a baggage of bad films.
“I believe I have only been lucky that a Karan Malhotra (Shamshera director) and a Siddharth Anand has put their faith in me. I am only thankful to them,” Vaani Kapoor said on the sidelines of launch of Marks & Spencer’s new summer spring line.
While Vani has extensively shot for Siddharth’s film, she is right now prepping for Shamshera, which includes workshops and dance rehearsals. The actor is particularly excited about teaming up with Ranbir and heaps praise on him for being a “relaxed and generous” co-star.
The actor said, “He is too humble, too nice. He is too simple and very cool. Relaxed. I can get awkward. I am not the best person to break the ice. Luckily, he does and it’s easier for me.”
Ask her if waiting in an industry where stars are made every Friday is easy, Vani Kapoor says because she has always been clear about what kind of films she wants to lend her name to, she doesn’t regret waiting for good work to come her way. “Everybody has a different patience level.
