‘We don’t get to try new looks’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - An­juri Na­yar Singh

Ac­tors such as Amitabh Bachchan, and Rajkummar Rao were given much praise for their changed phys­i­cal ap­pear­ances in their films, Paa (2009) and Raabta. How­ever, Kriti Sanon, (right) who dressed up like a war­rior princess in Raabta, doesn’t think that ac­tors get many op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­per­i­ment with their looks in films, un­less the script asks for it.

“It is su­per ex­cit­ing to do some­thing like that. We keep do­ing so many films, but don’t get to change the way we look,” says Kriti, who made her de­but with Heropanti in 2014. “I just feel that as ac­tors, you can’t ex­per­i­ment much with your looks. So there is only so much that you can do to your­self to make the au­di­ence feel that you are a dif­fer­ent char­ac­ter,” she says.

How­ever, the ac­tor adds that a changed phys­i­cal ap­pear­ance has a strong im­pact on the au­di­ence. “It’s just a mat­ter of some­one writ­ing a role like that. You don’t do it, un­less the script de­mands it,” she says.
