I am an engineer, movies a huge change for me but I never faced casting couch: Kriti Sanon BY SAEED NASIR

Bollywood professional Kriti Sanon, who supplied popular with Bareilly Ki Barfi says she possessed no ‘godfather’ in Bollywood but didn’t face the problem of casting sofa.

Bollywood actor Kriti Sanon says that though she does not have a ‘godfather’ in the film industry, she never encountered casting couch.

The Dilwale acting professional was present here on Saturday during the India Today Brain Rocks Children Summit. She shared her experience of as an outsider in Bollywood and spoke about the casting couch and body shaming at a duration.

“I am an engineer, so it was a huge shift for me personally. I was just a little lost…It appeared like a dream that was too big. I feel that such things (casting sofa) do exist, but not only in Bollywood. But in other places too. But thankfully, I have not encountered the casting sofa. I was signed by an agency and thankfully nothing of this variety happened certainly to me.”

Reminiscing about her first film, Kriti said: “It had been my first Bollywood film therefore i was really excited. In the past, it was taking baby steps. I used to be fascinated by everything on the pieces and I started to respect this field and everything related to it. ‘Whistle Baja’ was my first Bollywood melody, and I’ve been a dancer at heart, so that it was a high for me.”

Debuting other Tiger Shroff with the film Heropanti, the acting professional dealt with criticism quite gracefully whether it is on body shamming or behaving.

She said: “Avoid being scared of failure. Failures make you stronger. Don’t allow anyone let you know that you cannot make it. After you read reviews, whether the girl has a considerable role or not, people discuss hero and villain, and not write much about the heroine. So that is changing. People are believing in stories where a feminine is the primary protagonist. And I hope it starts to progress from here.”

As her last release Bareilly Ki Barfi is still in theatres, talking about playing a supporter of Madhuri Dixit, she said: “Bitti’s persona was very different from whatever I had fashioned done and it was challenging for me personally. People acquired seen me in attractive assignments, and it is simple to get typecast in Bollywood. It was great learning the dialect.”

Being truly a die-heart fan of Madhuri and Shah Rukh Khan, she said: “I used to dance to Ankhiyaan Milau. Talking about celebrities, Shah Rukh sir is my favorite. I have been his admirer since child years. I am a huge Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge admirer.”
