Vaani Kapoor opens up on her views on Equality, read to know what she said

Vaani Kapoor, who identifies as a cishet woman, as stated in Bollywood Hungama, brushed off all the stereotypes by playing the role of trans-woman in the movie Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui. And with that, the actress has now opened up on her views on equality.

She said, “I’m an actor who I feel should be like water moulding into any shape or form. So, for me, it was important that I play this role with utmost purity, sincerity and sensitivity. It is amazing to hear the reactions that my effort has been getting from the community, audiences and even critics. I hope I have played a part in starting an important conversation about equality.”

She added, “For me, the quality of the script and the kind of film that I’m a part of is more important than the box office result. The love that I’m getting for the film is incredibly overwhelming and I’m definitely emotional about it. I have taken it slow by choice because I have tried to pick films that help me showcase my talent to the best of my abilities. So, I feel hugely validated today.”

Further reacting to the director’s comment, who gave credit to Vaani Kapoor saying that most of the mainstream heroines won’t take this role, she said, “I’m proud of Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui and I know that this film is one for the ages. When people refer to all the progressive films that have been made in India to foster gender equality, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui will be there in that list and I’m supremely proud of that.”

She added, “I’m a choosy artiste. I’m always willing to wait for the right film and the right role and give my all in bringing the script and my character to life on screen. That’s been my kick since the very beginning and it will continue to be so. I’m always looking out for films that help me shine in them and Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui has done just that.” as quoted by Bollywood Hungama.
