It’s going to be a jam-packed year for Vaani as three of her films are lined up for release in the coming months. For starters, her YRF project, Shamshera with Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt is underway for release after which she has two more films, Bell Bottom with Akshay Kumar and Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui with Ayushmann Khurrana. She shot for the film last year when the lockdown was eased and the films are now in post-production.
With such diverse projects and roles in her kitty, Vaani was quizzed about her choices and what she expects in the future. To this she replied, “As a woman, I want to do more films that celebrate women, their lives and decisions. I have been fortunate that in my short career span, I have got films like Shudh Desi Romance, Befikre and WAR that have highlighted some brilliant aspects of being a woman. They showed how women are free-spirited, ambitious, resilient and strong.”
She further spoke of how content is evolving in the industry and there are more people who want to tell stories about women, “I have always wanted to do films that celebrate women as a symbol of independence, do films that bridge the gender perception about what a woman can or can’t do. Luckily, today, we are part of a generation that’s extremely forward-thinking and they want to see films where a woman is not treated as a flower vase. I’m thankful to be working in an era where people want to see more from a woman than just look stunningly gorgeous on screen.”
Here’s looking at Vaani bringing some powerful characters to life on screen very soon.
