'Manikarnika' was shot in Rajasthan and he got a chance to live the era.

The actor said, "It was a great experience while working on those forts. I’ve read about those in history and I got a chance to live in such an era through the film. It was a wonderful experience working with Ankita Lokhande, Kangana Ranaut and others."

Vaibhav mentioned that the song Dankila in Manikarnika was his first-ever Hindi dance number. He had performed in many Marathi songs earlier but this one with Ankita was a learning experience for him.

Vaibhav on working on Tribhanga's women-centric set 

Vaibhav Tatwawaadi shared that as male actors, many actors are hesitant on signing women-centric films. "For me, it’s more about the intuition than the equation on the sets. While reading a script there is an inner voice that tells you that you should go for it and it’s something that hits you hard," he added. While reading Tribhanga's script, he realised that the story is about a dysfunctional family and he found the characters relatable.

He received a call from director Renuka Shahane's team who mentioned that she really wanted him to do the role of Robindro. He added, "And after hearing that Stalwarts like Tanvi Azmi ma’am and Kajol Ma’am are a part of this project I couldn’t deny. It gave me yet another reason to say yes." He mentioned that he always admired Renuka Shahane and working with her and the entire team was a whole new experience for him.
