Shefali Shah says she turned down Kapoor and Sons and Neerja, talks about iconic Dil Dhadakne Do scene


Actress Shefali Shah, known for her work in films like Dil Dhadakne Do and the Delhi Crime web series, took to her Instagram account to chat with her fans and hosted an AMA session. Shefali has answered many questions about her favorite roles, the roles she’s missed, and the biopic she’d like to do.

When a fan asked her about her favorite role she has played so far. Shefali mentioned “Vartika and Tara”. She played Vartika in the Netflix Delhi Crime series. Vartika Chaturvedi was based on Chhaya Sharma, who led the Nirbhaya investigation. Shefali played Tara on Once Again, where she starred alongside Neeraj Kabi. Tara turned out to be a restaurateur who starts delivering food to a movie star and the two gradually fall in love.

Another fan asked Shefali how she performed this memorable scene from Dil Dhadakne Do, where her character gorges herself on a cake as tears roll down her face. To this Shefali said, “Feel it, don’t act.”


Shefali also spoke about the movie roles she was given, but she rejected them. She mentioned Kapoor & Sons and Neerja in the list of roles she skipped. Although she has not confirmed, one can imagine that Shah must be referring to the role of Ratna Pathak Shah in Kapoor & Sons and the role of Shabana Azmi in Neerja.
