Actress Kriti Sanon is doing an amazing job in the film industry and the credit goes to her alone! The actress said at an event she never faced the casting couch, neither does she have a godfather in the film industry. Kriti shared about her experience in Bollywood as an outsider and spoke about body shaming and the casting couch at an event in New Delhi.
Kriti said, “I am an engineer, so it was a huge shift for me. I was a little lost. It seemed like a dream which was too big. I think that such things (casting couch) do exist, but not only in Bollywood. But in other places too. But fortunately, I have not faced the casting couch. I was signed by an agency and thankfully nothing of this sort happened to me.”
Kirti Sanon made her debut with Heropanti with Tiger Shroff in 2014. “It was my first Bollywood film so I was really excited. Back then, I was taking baby steps. I was fascinated by everything on the sets and I started to respect this field and everything related to it. Whistle Baja was my first Bollywood song, and I have always been a dancer at heart, so it was a high for me. Don’t be scared of failure. Failures make you stronger. Don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot make it. When you read reviews, whether the girl has a substantial role or not, people talk about (the) hero and (the) villain, and not write much about the heroine. So that is changing. People are believing in stories where a female is the main protagonist. And I hope it starts to get better from here,” She added.
Kriti’s movie Bareilly Ki Barfi was appreciated by the critics and did quite well at the box office too. The actress played the role of Bitti, a fervent fan of Madhuri Dixit. Kriti said, “Bitti’s character was very different from anything that I had done and it was challenging for me. People had seen me in glamorous roles, and it is easy to get typecast in Bollywood. It was great learning the dialect. I used to dance to Ankhiyaan Milau.” Kriti Sanon has already made a mark in the industry and will be seen next in Raj & DK’s Farzi.
