So, Befikre got a lukewarm reception, and many said that the lead actress Vaani Kapoor had gone a bit overboard with the weight loss to play the female lead in the Ranveer Singh starrer. As a result of which, she damaged her charm that was well received in Shudh Desi Romance. Although there could be multiple factors due to which a film may not get the moolah in via the box office, Vaani Kapoor states that she’s to be blamed for it!
She believes that the concept upon which the movie is built is way ahead of its time. “I know that the film has got polarized reviews. It will get its due in the coming years,”
She further added “I have always felt that I was the biggest risk factor and the biggest bet for ‘Befikre‘ because everyone else in the team had achieved something and have already proven their worth in their respective fields. I was the new face who stood a chance to be accepted or not. Aditya didn’t go with the obvious choice and cast me, so somewhere I felt that if there was anything that didn’t work, it was probably me.” When asked whether her onscreen avatar is anywhere close to her real life personality, she said “I’m not into casual dating. I’d like to meet a person before taking things forward, but I feel relieved after playing the role since a part of you subconsciously becomes the person.”
Talking about being on the judge’s panel in the recently-concluded Elle Graduates 2017 Pagent “I am not a fashionista. My judgment came from the perspective of a normal girl.”
Don’t downplay yourself, Vaani, you did good. Maybe your third film will work like a charm?
