The character of Shyra and the casting of Vaani were my two biggest risks: Aditya Chopra


Vaani Kapoor will be soon seen as the carefree and vivacious French-Indian Shyra in the soon to be released film Befikre. The movie directed by Aditya Chopra is all set to release on December 8th.

Aditya, in a personalized note, explained the character of his Shyra and the decision behing casting Vaani for the role. He mentioned, “As I was not happy with the new girls that were being shown to me, I took a long shot and told Shanoo to audition Vaani on a series of Hollywood romcom scenes. I just wanted to see if she could transform into someone completely different and surprise me. She blew me away and I found my Shyra.”
