I was told I need some imperfection: Kriti Sanon
Although actor Kriti Sanon is just three films old, she has been directed by top filmmakers and co-starred with actors such as Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. However, she faced some bizarre criticism in the aspiring actor phase. “There were some low phases in my life; there were films offered by big banners, but they were not the best debut projects. So, I had to tell myself that I should be patient and good things will happen to me,” says Kriti, who was born and brought up in Delhi and shifted to Mumbai to try her luck in Bollywood.
The actor, who turned 27 on Thursday, adds, “There were days when I was annoyed. On some days, I’d cry, because there was nothing to keep me busy. I met a few people who told me that something was not right about me — someone told me, ‘You’re too goodlooking. There has to be some sort of imperfection in you to look real on screen.’ I think I did feel low, but at the same time, I did have people who believed in me a lot. That gave me a little more confidence.”
Kriti made her debut with Tiger Shroff in Heropanti (2014), and starred in Dilwale (2015) and this year’s Raabta. Her personal life made headlines when she was linked up with her Raabta co-star Sushant Singh Rajput. “I’m human and anything written about me does affect me. But it’s important to move on and focus on what’s exciting and positive,” says Kriti, whose next film is Bareilly Ki Barfi.
