Kriti Kharbanda completes 12 years in film industry, Pulkit Samrat calls her an ‘inspiration’
In a post, Kriti reflected on her career in the movies so far
Actor Kriti Kharbanda has completed 12 years in the Indian film industry.
Kriti made her debut in the 2009 Telugu action film, Boni. After a number of appearances in the south, she got her first Bollywood break in Raaz: Reboot in 2016. She has since been in the Hindi films Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana, Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se, Housefull 4, Taish and others.
On Instagram, Kriti reflected on her journey in films so far.
"12 years ago, on the 12th of June, I began a journey. As a teenager, I took my first steps into this industry, that has ultimately shaped me into the person I am today," she wrote.
"In my time as an actor, I've met so many people who I'm grateful for. I've learned lessons, and so much about myself. I found my calling, it became my identity. I've had the privilege of working with some of the best people in the industry. So, to everybody associated with my career- be it for a minute, a day, or the last 12 years, I have nothing but gratitude for you."
"From Pragati, to Dr. Swathi, to Aarti Shukla to Rajkumari Meena, and now Aditi, somewhere along the line I grew up. I went from being an immature teenager who was timid to an adult who is strong and bold. I was kid who loved playing dress up and dancing to the kickass numbers of the 90's and now I get to do that for a living. I cannot imagine a bigger blessing. Today I watch a full generation and more perform to my numbers, recreating things that I have done, and the feeling is surreal," Kriti shared.
Actor Pulkit Samrat, who is reportedly dating Kriti, wished her on the new milestone.
He wrote, “I am grateful for a lot of things in life, and one of them is getting to know @kriti.kharbanda. Her journey as an actor is an inspiration, but even more so, her journey as a person is remarkable. Right from the time I got to know her as a co-star to where we are today, she has been an absolute joy to be with. Her way of looking at life has taught me new perspectives.”
He continued, “There is so much beneath all that glamour and all the jazz. A compassionate human who finds joy in the littlest of things. A pragmatic head who knows how to adult while still keeping the inner child alive. It has been an absolute privilege getting to know you KK. Congratulations on your 12 years in the industry and here’s to several more of such 12 to come!”
