It’s been a slow start: KritiSanon on acting


Actress KritiSanon, who has only done three films — “Heropanti”, “Dilwale” and “Raabta” since venturing into Bollywood in 2014, says it has been a slow start for her, but it’s not something done purposely.

Asked if she feels it’s a slow start for her in Bollywood, Kritisaid: “It’s not something done purposely. I think sometimes certain films demand more time. ‘Raabta’ demanded this much time. I had signed ‘Raabta’ before ‘Dilwale’ released, but I had to prepare for two months before I started shooting for it. Then, there had to be a gap between both the schedules.”

The 27-year-old says she had to learn “swimming, scuba diving and horse riding” for “Raabta”.

“I never want to do a film just for the heck of it, rather do it right. That could be one of the reasons that I had to give so much time to certain films… I had signed a film called ‘Farzi’ and blocked the dates, but it didn’t happen…So it has been a slow start,” she added.

After “Raabta”, Kriti is now looking forward to “Bareilly Ki Barfi”, which has been directed by AshwinyIyer Tiwari.

“In this one year, I have shot for ‘Raabta’ and completed ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, so it is a back to back release,” she said.

“Bareilly Ki Barfi”, which is slated to release on July 21, is a romantic comedy rooted in the subculture of the north Indian city Bareilly. The film also stars AyushmannKhurrana and Rajkummar Rao.

The film will feature Ayushmann as the owner of a printing press. Rajkummar will be seen as an author and Kriti as a straightforward girl.
