Meet Shyra, a professional tour guide of Indian origin. Born and brought up in Paris, she is fluent in Hindi and French. She takes Indian tourists through the beautiful landmarks of the city. Shyra’s bonding with Paris also influences her choices as a person. We are talking about Vaani Kapoor’s character in Aditya Chopra’s Befikre.
And it was a revelation for Vaani, while preparing for the role. She spent time walking around, absorbing daily life and slowly imbibed the Parisian culture. Says Vaani, “Paris grows on you like an indulgence. With Befikre I got a lot of time to spend in Paris. As part of my prep to play a tour guide I spent time, soaking in the city like a local. From its cafes where people while away time to its colourful shops, boutiques and tiny eateries, I began to find a connect with all of it.” Vaani is in love with Paris, isn’t she?
Befikre produced by Yash Raj Films and also starring Ranveer Singh in the lead, is slated to release on December 9.
