Get to know the Befikre girl better!

She made her Bollywood debut in 2013 opposite Sushant Kapoor in Shuddh Desi Romance and then disappeared! When she re-appeared on the Bollywood firmament in 2016, she decided to do so with a bang.

In a film directed by Aditya Chopra.

Opposite Ranveer Singh.

Whom she kisses -- in the film, of course! -- so many times that we've lost track.

Yes, we're taking about Vaani Kapoor.

Before you watch the girl on the big screen this Friday, here are some things that you may want to know about her:

She did workshops for six months before she was signed for Befikre.

During this period, she had to prepare one English scene and one English song every week, says ScoopWhoop. Her training was supervised by Yash Raj's formidable casting director, Shanoo Sharma.
