Actress Vaani Kapoor, who is gearing up for the release of her second film “Befikre”, has praised its director Aditya Chopra saying that he is a humble man. Asked how was it working with Chopra, Vaani told IANS over phone from Mumbai: “He is such a humble man. You can never feel intimidated by him because he makes sure that he is approachable and friendly.”
“Before he announced (about ‘Befikre’), he broke the news I am doing this movie…He was taking my workshops. I didn’t know for what movie and who is directing it…He made me feel very comfortable when we were doing workshops also,” she said.
The 28-year-old actress says by the time she reached the film’s set, she “did become a lot comfortable”. “For me, I could be myself (in front of Chopra). I could goof up and make mistakes and not feel judged…That fear had gone,” she said.
Talking about her “Befikre” journey, Vaani said: “It was amazing. I felt like it was the best thing that had happened to me…Not only because it is an Aditya Chopra movie or it has Ranveer Singh or I had such a fabulous team, but also for the character I got to play.”
The “Shuddh Desi Romance” actress says she has something to treasure for life. Shot widely in Paris, “Befikre” is a fresh interpretation of love as viewed in the 21st century. The film is slated to release on December 9.
