Kriti Sanon’s big small-town con­nect

HT Cafe - - Front Page - — Prashant Singh

It’s a known fact that Bareilly Ki Barfi (BKB) has turned out to be a sleeper hit of 2017. And that has, of course, come with loads of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the film’s ac­tors, Kriti Sanon, Ayush­mann Khur­rana and Ra­jkum­mar Rao. Now, ap­par­ently, Kriti — who played a small-town girl — has been in­un­dated with sev­eral small-town girl roles.

“Kriti’s char­ac­ter (Bitti) has been the most rooted char­ac­ter that the ac­tor has played on screen till date. So, over the past few weeks, many film-mak­ers have been of­fer­ing her per­for­mance­ori­ented roles, wherein she is sup­posed to play a small town girl,” says an in­sider.

In an ear­lier in­ter­view with HT Café, Kriti spoke about how she picked up small nu­ances from small-town girls, in­clud­ing their body lan­guage and ac­cent for her role of a UP girl. “Now, her ‘rooted’ out­ing has caught the at­ten­tion of film-mak­ers, whose films re­quire pow­er­ful per­for­mances,” says the in­sider.

Clearly, it’s a dras­tic change from her glam­orous diva im­age that Kriti has al­ways been as­so­ci­ated with. “It was an in­ter­est­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for Kriti to get out of her com­fort zone and she is look­ing for­ward to play­ing many such in­ter­est­ing parts in the fu­ture too,” says the in­sider.

When con­tacted, Kriti says, “I am happy that peo­ple have liked me in BKB as it was a very dif­fer­ent world for me. It only gives me more con­fi­dence to ex­per­i­ment fur­ther and take up dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters. Now, the kinds of op­por­tu­ni­ties that are com­ing my way are way more ex­cit­ing and var­ied, which is great for me.”
