MUMBAI: Vaani Kapoor has always tried to be fit but ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ pushed her to work harder. “I have always tried to be fit but ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ is a film that has really pushed me to work harder and to my limits. To pull off my role, I put myself through a grind that wasn’t easy. It was what (director) Abhishek Kapoor saw me have on-screen and I dived headlong into the process of achieving this body type for the film,” said Vaani.
The actress claims the film is a huge milestone in her career. “I wanted to give it all. It required me to achieve a body type that I never had before. I wanted to nail this role and took this challenge head-on. I needed to appear like a really fit girl. I literally exhausted myself training,” she said.
Vaani added: “After a difficult lockdown period and with almost no training, I had to spring back with rigorous workout sessions every day but when I saw myself on the monitor, I felt it was all worth it.” ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ is set to release on 9 July.
