Vaani Kapoor set off ideals with her challenging role in the movie, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, starring Ayushmann Khurrana and her. The actress played a role of a transgender in the movie. However, while talking about the role, she said that she doesn’t take up films to win awards, and if she does win award for the film, she would dedicate it to the transgender community.

She said, “I have never chosen films thinking I will win awards for them. I have always chosen projects from my heart and that’s why I’m fortunate that I have films like ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ in my filmography.”

She added, “It is rare to find a project that can consume you, make you dissolve yourself on the screen to become someone like Maanvi. Maanvi is an idea and an ideal for the world and I’m blessed that I got to play this character with all my heart and soul.”

She further said, “If I were to win awards, I would dedicate them to the transgender community in India because we wanted to speak about inclusivity. If the film wins or my performance wins, it will show people that mainstream media is embracing this thought of much-needed change. “Mainstream media has the power to change societies, make it evolve, and become better. But again, we didn’t make the film keeping awards in mind. It was made from the purest place in Abhishek Kapoor’s heart. He wanted us to open our minds.”

She concluded, “We made the film to seed a thought about changing oneself, one’s beliefs and ideas about how society is and how society should be for the future generations.” as quoted by ETimes.
