Kriti Sanon hates getting typecast
The actress is elated about the postive response to her latest release Bareilly Ki Barfi
Actress Kriti Sanon said her films Bareilly Ki Barfi and Raabta have helped her evolve both as an actor and as a person. "I personally feel that you need to grow with every film. You have to find a new way, a different way, a new process to do what you do. You have to look at things differently and these two films have immensely helped me grow as an actor as well as a person," she says.
Though Raabta failed to garner good business at the box-office, Kriti's latest release Bareilly Ki Barfi is receiving positive response and she feels overwhelmed. "I am very overwhelmed that it is getting such a great response from critics as well as the audience. The janta's (audience) reaction is amazing. I have been reading all the tweets. It's a family entertainer," she says.
Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, the film also stars Rajkummar Rao amd Ayushmann Khurrana. Talking about her work on the runway, Kriti says that her modelling experience has helped her a lot. "I don't need as many rehearsals. I know what to do on the ramp. I know bits of technicalities with respect to drapes and trails and how to handle them," she says.
Asked what she thinks about models complaining of having a Bollywood showstopper stealing their job, Kriti says, "I am not stealing their job anyways. I was a model so I never felt that way. I think firstly they are stunning and they know their job well." The Dilwale star praised the models and said that they "carry any garment because of their body type and their walk. And everything looks good on them," she adds.
Kriti ventured into Hindi filmdom in 2014 with Heropanti and since then she has managed to have a strong fan base. The actress currently has 1.39 million fans on Twitter.
But does she feel any complications due to her celebrity status? "It's just that your privacy goes away. Fame actually works for you as you want that appreciation and love for audience. Yes, you can't have golgappas and you can't walk around in your pyjamas or go to the mall."
