Actor Shefali Shah, known for her work in films like Dil Dhadakne Do and web series Delhi Crime, took to her Instagram handle to engage with her fans and held an AMA session. Shefali answered many questions about her favourites roles, the parts that got away and the biopic that she would like to do.

When a fan asked her about her favourite role that she has played so far. Shefali mentioned “Vartika & Tara.” She played Vartika on the Netflix series Delhi Crime. Vartika Chaturvedi was based on Chhaya Sharma, who headed the Nirbhaya investigation. Shefali played Tara in Once Again, where she starred alongside Neeraj Kabi. Tara was shown to be a restaurant owner who starts delivering food to a film star and the two gradually fall in love.

Another fan asked Shefali how she took on that memorable scene from Dil Dhadakne Do, where her character binges on a cake as tears run down her face. To this, Shefali said, “Feel it, not act it.”

Shefali also opened up about the film roles that came her way but she rejected them. She mentioned Kapoor & Sons and Neerja in the list of roles that she skipped. Though she did not confirm, one can imagine that Shah must be referring to Ratna Pathak Shah’s role in Kapoor & Sons and Shabana Azmi’s role in Neerja.

Shefali was recently seen with Manav Kaul in Netflix’s Ajeeb Daastaans.
