Vaani Kapoor had to learn horse riding to play her role in ‘Shamshera’

Actress Vaani Kapoor, who plays the role of a traveling performer in the upcoming movie ‘Shamshera’, had to learn horse riding for months to succeed in her role in the film. Training was an integral part of the film for the actress to acclimatize to the presence of a horse.

‘Shamshera’ director Karan Malhotra, who has previously directed ‘Agneepath’ (2012) and ‘Brothers’ (2015) said in a statement: “Vaani had to go through horse training because when you train with a animal and you want to work with an animal on film, you have to establish a relationship with the animal…the horse that she trained with the longest and eventually that horse became a friend.”

Kapoor added to his manager saying: “Even to go horse riding you need that emotional connection with the animal. Otherwise they will throw you off balance. I remember I used to get everything this packet of cookies and that’s how the trainer also told me to feed the horse, befriend the horse and it’s so cute.”

“I mean they are like the most beautiful animals. I think it’s extremely important to be friends with them first. They only know the language of love,” she added. .

‘Shamshera’ is Ranbir Kapoor’s first film after his latest release ‘Sanju’ which was released in 2018. The film hits theaters on July 22, 2022 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
