Actor Shefali Shah, known for her work in films such as Dil Dhadakne Do and web series Delhi Crime, took to her Instagram handle to connect with her fans and held an AMA session. Shefali answered many questions about her favorite roles, the parts that got away and the biopic she would like to do.
When a fan asked her about her favorite role she has played so far. Shefali called “Vartika & Tara.” She played Vartika in the Netflix series Delhi Crime. Vartika Chaturvedi was based on Chhaya Sharma, who led the Nirbhaya research. Shefali played Tara in Once Again, where she co-starred with Neeraj Kabi. Tara turns out to be a restaurant owner who starts delivering food to a movie star and the two gradually fall in love.
Another fan asked Shefali how she shot that memorable scene from Dil Dhadakne Do where her character eats a cake with tears streaming down her face. To this, Shefali said, “Feel it, don’t do it.”
Shefali was also candid about the movie roles that came her way, but she turned them down. She mentioned Kapoor & Sons and Neerja in the list of roles she skipped. Though she didn’t confirm it, one can imagine Shah must be referring to the role of Ratna Pathak Shah in Kapoor & Sons and the role of Shabana Azmi in Neerja.
