Bollywood actress Kriti Sanon is all set to play diverse characters in upcoming films such as ‘Bhediya’, ‘Mimi’, and ‘Adipurush’. Kriti feels now she is in a position to try something different and challenging and credited her 2019 film ‘Lukka Chuppi’ for giving a much-needed boost.
Kriti said, “When you establish yourself a bit and people are liking you and the film is doing the numbers that you want to do, it gives you confidence to take up something challenging. I feel as an actor you also get bored repeating yourself and the audience also gets bored seeing you in same kinds of films. Yes, there is a deliberate attempt to try do something different and not repeat yourself.”
“Bareilly (Ki Barfi) was a milestone because someone believed in me and that was (director) Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, (co-writer) Nitesh (Tiwari) sir, and Dinesh (Vijan) who was the producer. They believed that I could play Bittu in the film. I feel that you have to have belief in an actor rather than the characters, or how I look at the red carpet. They had that belief and I am glad that they did. That film was so out of the box from what I had done. It gave me the opportunity of coming away from hair, make-up, and songs, to getting into something that was de-glam and I just enjoyed the characters. After that 99 percent characters I have been offered were from small towns,” Kriti said.
