Vaani Kapoor has appeared in several high-profile films over the past three years, including Bell Bottom (2002), War (2019), and now Shamshera. She is not, however, deluded. During an interaction with Mid Day, the actor acknowledges that she is not a star, saying, "I am the underdog." She claims it's the consequence of years of dedication if her most recent release features her opposite Ranbir Kapoor, one of today's biggest actors.

The actor told the tabloid that neither possibilities nor living up to her parents' legacy came knocking on her door. Yet people kept telling her, "Oh, she's lucky!" Her position of privilege is that she was able to contact casting director Shanoo Sharma. Vaani had some opportunities, but what she did with them is what defines who she is. People want to know her credentials before she co-stars with Ranbir in Shamshera. The actor revealed that people enquire, "Why is she in this movie?" Vaani is attempting to establish her identity as an artist with every film.

Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui (2021) helped the actor silence many of her critics. Vaani fearlessly played a transgender lady in Abhishek Kapoor's love story, defying industry traditions that value elegance. Although the film advanced the conversation about queer love, it performed poorly at the box office.

When asked if she was worried about her lack of commercial success, Vaani said that it was a questionable subject. In the back of their minds as they were creating it, they were aware that it might not appeal to a wide audience. The actor also revealed that it was not intended for a wide audience. It sought to start discussions about a topic that had barely ever been brought up before. They are pleased with the movie they created. 

When Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui dropped on Netflix, people fell in love, and that represents a partial step toward progressive thought. In order for her to feel as though she has made a decent contribution to something when she looks back on her career as an actor, Vaani is anxious to take on such jobs.

She is currently preoccupied with savouring Shamshera's release, though. She exudes joy at being in the same frame as Ranbir and remarked that she has so much respect for the actor that he is and he exhibits no erratic behaviour. It was a pleasure for Vaani to be working with him.
