When news broke out that Yash Raj Films have signed a three film deal with a newbie by name Vaani Kapoor, many eyebrows raised with curiosity as to who the babe is. But when she walked into the studio floor for the first promotional event of her debut Shuddh Desi Romance heads turned and stopped at the beautiful lass.

Critics, who are miser at the debutantes, especially girls have given her a huge thumbs up after the release of SDR. Commendable, especially when has to perform with the likes of Sushant Rajput and Parineeti Chopra. She did and she was flooded with offers after the same. But she stuck to her principals the YRF and her second film 'Aha Kalyanam' is the South remake of their own blockbuster BBB.

Here in Hyderabad as a part of the promotional campaign for the film, she spoke to IndiaGlitz about her personal and professional life, the learning curve, the comparisons between the industries, between her and Anushka Sharma, her co-actor Nani and how rumors wouldn't stop chasing her.

Spend half an hour with her, you will know how urbane but grounded, well mannered yet resilient, bubbly yet strong willed she is. She took all the questions, some trickish, some probing and some others personal, smiled them off with her charm but drove the point home very clearly.

Excerpts From The Interview...

Delhi, My First Love...


I am a Delhiite, did my schooling in Delhi,  I had done a three year program in Delhi, worked on my internship with the Oberois, worked for a little while for ITC and entered Modeling during which time I got a call from Yash Raj and I am here. This is my second film first one being Shudh Desi Romance.
My Cute Family...

I have a cute family... My parents and my sister who got married at a very early age. My father is a businessman and Mom is a Marketing consultant.
Fell In Love With Hyderabad...

Hyderabad is a well sculpted. From the airport to the hotel... Roads wonderfully laid, clean, spacious... It reminds me of Delhi. I am here for promoting the film now. But I wish I get an opportunity to visit again and again. I am a super foodie and the first thing I do is taste any city's food as I step in. I have tasted Biryani here and its delicious. Couldn't go out a lot coz of my promotions but as and when I get a chance, I will have a city tour.

Vani Kapoor Interview

Me The YRF Prodigy...

It was a marathon audition process for me before I was chosen for the SDR role. Did several auditions in general, then for the particular movie, for the role before cracking it. Even for this film, I was called on by Aditya Chopra who thought there is a connect between Shruti and me and if I could learn the language, I am the girl. So, I had auditioned for this role too.

Yes, I Am Shruti...

I was never worried about the character since deep down, I knew that I am like Shruti myself. The psyche, the conduct, the zeal and the focus... everything is like me. Just one difference that I am more laid back. So, I had to raise the energy levels in myself to play the role. My biggest task was mastering the language and two, keeping the energy levels of Shruti throughout.

Anushka Is A Great Performer...

I don't compare myself with Anushka Sharma coz each actor has her own expression, demeanor and portrayal of the role. I respect her a lot coz she is a fabulous actress herself. But I had my own way of presenting the character. If people find similarities, it might be coz it's the same movie, same role. But I wish they watch it for me not to compare with the original.

Me, The Question Bank...

I always got frustrated when I didn't get my line right and agitated. They were all feeling it funny and my director was a cool guy, smiled and patiently said its okay, cool down you will get it. And my questions on the sets were legendary. I used to bombard everyone with lots and lots of them. They always looked at me at me weirdly wondering if I were a question bank or a quiz master.

Gokul Is The Sweetest...

Director is the sweetest person on the sets, at the same time very clear and focused. He was so very patient and waited for the output till he got it.
Aha Kalyanam, A Full Meals...

The movie has shaped up very well. We all worked very hard and with all honesty. The music is quite successful here and getting lot of appreciation. Even in the movie, the music will play a huge role. Be it the tracks or the visuals will rock the theater. You will feel the strong chemistry between me and Nani.

Dharani, The Composer...

Dharan gave fantastic tracks for the film, much hummable, lovable songs, all of them. I love the entire album with a special liking for the romantic and Punch numbers.

Shruti Is Me...

Shruti is a focused and determined girl, knows exactly what she wants to do in life. There is a fun side to her too but her over all persona is business-like, an achiever. Enter Shakthi in her life, it changes big time and how both try to reach their goals but in the journey, come close and fall in love.
Nani Is Chilled Out...

Nani is a level headed and chilled out guy. Knows what he wants and has no airs or tantrums of a 'Star' and is instantly loved by everyone around. I couldn't watch his films but for some bits and pieces of 'Eega'.

Vani-Nani...

There are several moments during production where in me and Nani bullied each other much like a Tom n Jerry show and I think they are composing them as bloopers in the end scrolls.

Yes, I Lip-Locked... So What ...?

I am a professional actor and Lip lock is just another scene for me. We portrayed the romance, how people in love behave, move with each other outside. So, no qualms about it. If the script demanded it I would do it. I think we are moving towards the real cinema and Kiss is just a part of it.
Rumors Will Stay, I Move...

I take the rumours in my stride and move on. The more attention I pay, it becomes bigger. People will create them as long as I am acting. So, don't care about them and focus on my work.

I Love The Lunch Breaks Here...

I didn't see much difference in the work culture in Hindi or South. Both are professional, I loved both the teams, co-actors, crew members and I am fortunate to have landed up with such great teams. One difference I notice is, in South, they take Lunch breaks. In Hindi, I didn't get any...

My Team Loved Me...

I am in touch with my team and they are happy with me. They think I made Shruti come alive and I wish the audience will feel the same too. We are all waiting for the release.

I Have To Learn... A Lot...

I am still young, so immature, so wrong many times. I am still learning and learning from my mistakes too. I don't have any dream roles as such but wish to do different genres of films to understand and portray the roles I do. I watch a lot of films and observe the characters but not the actors nor I follow them.

My Likes...

I like Autumn, then the Monsoon.. I love Black color. I am a Jeans n T-Shirt kind of girl. I have a cat and a dog. Monopoly is my favorite game. I have lots of pet names.. They call me Vaangs, Kappoo, Veekey... Meryl Streep and Leonardo Di Caprio are my favorites. I am not seeing anyone, Single right now... I need to find love to opinionate...

For Me, Love Is...

Love should be unconditional and there have to be loyalty and commitment. I value friendship a lot and as in love, you need to be loyal and stand by each other thru thick and thin.

Sign Off...

Go watch 'Aha Kalyanam' after a long tiring day. Go with your entire family including pets and a bucket of popcorn. You will enjoy the film. Its releasing on the 21st February.
