Vaani Kapoor is an Indian model and actress who debuted with the movie Shuddh Desi Romance. At an age of 25(born August 23, 1988), this promising actress looks all geared to take on fresh challenges.
Vaani was born in Delhi, her family hails from Punjab. Her father is a businessman who deals in furniture exports, while her mother is a marketing executive. She has an elder sister who is married and lives in Netherlands. After completing her schooling, Vaani pursued a bachelor’s degree in tourism, following which she got an internship at Oberoi Hotels and Resorts in Jaipur. Her next job was with ITC Hotel. Elite Model Management got in touch with her and she began to do modeling as well.
How Bollywood came calling
Vaani tried her hand in auditioning for a supporting role in Yash Raj Films’ Shuddh Desi Romance. So impressed was Aditya Chopra, the head-honcho of the company that she was given a three-film contact with the banner.
Vaani says, “. Shanoo Sharma (casting director for Yash Raj) short-listed my pictures. I never sent my photos to any production house. Production houses get in touch with modeling agencies to look for new talent. So, I was just one of the girls who were meeting Shanoo. I had to go through a full round of auditions to meet Aditya Chopra.
Vaani says that she was intimidated by the director Maneesh Sharma, as she was a newbie but overall, it was a very good experience. She says that even though Yash Raj Films have signed her up for a 3 film contract, she can work with anyone else too; there are no restrictions.
The movie attracted a good response and Vaani’s performance was appreciated. Vaani also signed a deal to endorse Lux brand of body-wash products.

Vaani Kapoor’s boyfriend
The actress says that she does not have a guy in her life. She replies, “Actually to be honest, I do not have a boyfriend. But I do not have a set idea for romance. Somtime, you may want someone to make you feel special, at other days, you just want to have a regular chat, go for a movie, have dinner, chit-chat etc. I am not much into over-dramatization and filmy romance, though.
