Vaani Kapoor


Multiple award-winning Indian actress, Vaani Kapoor is one of India's most celebrated actresses who has wowed audiences with her performances in multiple blockbuster films such as her first film Shudh Desi Romance (2013) for which she won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut, Befikre (2016), War (2019), Bell Bottom (2021), and the most recent Shamshera (2022). Vaani's commanding screen presence and choice of challenging roles makes her a compelling actress who is not only entertaining, but also impactful. In her most recent success, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui (2021), she was commended for choosing a road less travelled and breaking taboos by portraying a trans-woman character with authenticity and grace. For breaking the boundaries through her impressive range of roles and tremendous performances, we cannot wait to welcome Vaani Kapoor to our 2022 Indian Film Festival of Melbourne!
