Vaani Kapoor will star in a new crime thriller after becoming popular for her portrayal of a transgender girl in Abhishek Kapoor's Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui. The forthcoming OTT series will be produced by Yash Raj Films. Mardaani 2 director Gopi Puthran has joined the team to oversee the undertaking.

A source who confirmed the news told ANI that Vaani has only been considering endeavours where she could put up a memorable performance. She enjoys a challenge, and her acting is flawless. In Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui executed this flawlessly. While she still favours theatrical releases, she won't exclude herself from fantastic digital initiatives, one of which was offered in Gopi Puthran's subsequent. It is a grim, suspenseful crime thriller that YRF believes to be a wonderful idea and is really confident about. They will carry out this endeavour on an astonishingly large scale.

The source added that Gopi made it clear that he wanted to cast a newcomer to the OTT scene. In this gritty thriller, he was looking for a strong actor who could hold her own and provide excellent acting moments. To effectively headline this performance, Gopi required a performer. He has always valued Vaani's contributions to her films. So, before deciding to put on the show, he consulted with Vaani to ascertain her motivations. To his delight, Vaani agreed right away that it was a great idea and would work with Gopi, who has become a director to watch after doing a great job with Mardaani 2. Vaani wants to collaborate with the smartest people so that she can improve as a performer with each performance. So for her, this was a no-brainer.
