Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui made quite an entrance into the Bollywood as the first Hindi Transgender romance. Actor Vaani Kapoor adresses a pressing dilemma in this film about how conversation about trans people are never a part of mundane discussions. It is portrayed as a taboo, but the film says it otherwise.
Vaani did justice to the character. To understand and portray the character even better, Vaani reached out to trans women who have been struggling in their lives and spent some time with them. She said, “Gattu helped me to reach them. I also went through movies and even documentaries not just in English but French as well. I made crazy notes as I wanted to give full justice to the role.”
Speaking of intimate scenes, Vaani expressed her concern over not being comfortable doing intimate scenes and find it difficult to do them. She shared, “The intimate scenes in ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ were included for a reason. But note well, neither in ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ nor in ‘War’ and ‘Befikre’ was there any hardcore lovemaking scene. But yes, intimate scenes are never easy to carry out. Now for me, I need to trust the director. I won’t work with a director in such cases if I feel he is dodgy and I cannot trust him.”
The actor has done some tremendous work in the industry, including ‘War’ and ‘Befikre’. She will now be seen with Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt in ‘Shamshera’.
