niche for herself in the industry. She has become known for her ability to seamlessly transition between different genres, from intense dramas to light-hearted comedies, and has earned accolades for her performances. By overcoming the challenge of being reduced to just a “pretty face,” Kriti has not only proven her critics wrong but has also paved the way for a more diverse representation in the entertainment industry with films like Bareilly Ki Barfi, Mimi among others.
Kriti Sanon shares she could do more, but did not have the kind of opportunities she wanted on her table; says, “Every film has taught me something”
Kriti admitted that her primary obstacle in the early stages of her career was to overcome the perception of being solely defined as a “pretty face.” She said, “When you do not come from a film background, it anyway takes time for people to even know your name. So, I wanted them to know my name, and that name to resonate with talent. I always craved for validation as an actor. That started happening with Bareilly Ki Barfi, then Luka Chuppi did really well. I was taking baby steps in the right direction. Of course, after Mimi, there has been a huge shift; I got my first set of best actor awards. It took eight years for it to happen.”
The actress believed that she had more to offer as an actress but struggled to find filmmakers willing to give her a chance. Sanon expressed that during that time, she experienced a sense of frustration. She said, “There were a lot of moments of that... knowing I could do more, but not having the kind of opportunities I wanted on my table. When you come from the outside, you don’t know people, they don’t know you, it takes a while to make an impact, and for people to associate with you. You end up doing the best you can from what you are offered. It may not necessarily be the best thing in the world, but every film has taught me something.”
Talking about her upcoming project Om Raut’s Adipurush, Kriti said, “There are a lot of sentiments and emotions associated with Ramayan and Sita ji. I have tried to give it my 100 percent and do whatever is the best I could. She was a very pure soul, most loving heart and a very strong mind- these three qualities coming together are a rarity.”
Apart from Adipurush, the actress will be next seen in Ganapath with Tiger Shroff, The Crew alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan and Tabu, and an untitled next with Shahid Kapoor.
