Vaani Kapoor on playing a trans woman in Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui 

Actress Vaani Kapoor was recently seen sharing screen with Ayushmann Khurrana in the offbeat romcom 'Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui'. The actress has been garnering praises for her impressive performance in the role of a bold and upstanding transgender woman and hile many people believe that it was brave on Vaani's part to take up the role of a trans character, the actress herself doesn't think so.

According to a recent report in Koimoi, Vaani said, "I didn’t think that I would be perceived brave if I did this film. As an actor, I have only tried to do good work and be patient to find scripts that enables me to become a reliable credible actor. Today, I feel validated that I chose a film that has started an important conversation about our society and told us to look inwards and dissect the gaze with which we address the issues of the transgender community in our country."

Talking about the expected impact of her performance in the film, Vaani said, “I hope the impact of Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui is in enabling future films and producers so that representation of transgender people playing such roles is achieved. I hope that after this film no cis-het actress ever plays the role of a trans-woman and we can cast people from the community to play such roles."
