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.
