When Kriti was asked if people had ever told her that the film industry wasn’t for her, she told Pinkvilla, “Of course bola hai. Not only because of where I come from. I don’t think that was always the thing. But ye duniya ka perception hi bohot alag tha. Alag as in, bohot positive perception nahi tha. Like glamorous hai, aachi duniya nahi hai, aache log nahi hai, actors banne ke baad shaadi nahi hoti hai.”
She further added that a few people of her age group had also told her, ‘no one wants to marry an actress’. Though she laughed it off, Kriti was shocked and amazed to witness that people from her generation can also have such perception of the film industry.
Her parents were also very protective and thought that she was not meant for the industry because she is shy and an emotional person who also doesn’t believe in socializing. “So my mother always said ‘I don’t think this place is meant for you. The people, the girls that come here are so confident and you know they ooze just a different kind of confidence, and you have to be thick-skinned,’” Kriti said.
She further added, “I am a very emotional person, so for her, it was like, ‘you are shy and you are not big on socializing, you have a limited few friends. You are also extremely emotional. You start crying when someone scolds you in one go’.”
On the work front, Kriti will be next seen in Om Raut’s upcoming directorial Adipurush alongside Prabhas. She also had Ganapath with Tiger Shroff in her kitty.
