Actor Vaani Kapoor will be reprising the character of Sona in the upcoming Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt starrer Shamshera, which took the internet by storm yesterday with its teaser. The Befikre actor shared the poster of her film with the caption, ‘She is relentless and has a heart of gold. She is Sona’.

In the action-packed film directed by Agneepath fame director Karan Malhotra, Vaani is playing a popular performer from the 1800s. She tells us, “I play the character of Sona, the most sought-after travelling performer of India in the 1800s. I have always chosen roles where my character pivots the script in a certain direction and in Shamshera too, Sona plays an important role in building the narrative.” Giving more details about her character, she adds, “Sona has strong willpower, she’s confident, a go-getter yet has her own emotional vulnerabilities. She’s definitely one of the most refreshing characters I have played on screen.”
