I’ve always been critical about my performance and I’m never satisfied: Kriti Sanon

Kriti Sanon started her career in 2014, and over the years has delivered her best with the roles she has played. We saw her last in Bareilly Ki Barfi, the film which changed her perception among the audience. The actress will now be seen opposite Bollywood's new heartthrob, Kartik Aaryan, in Maddock Films' film Lukka Chuppi.

In a conversation with the media, Kriti shared the experience of working in the film, her satisfaction with the career so far and a lot more. On being asked about her new film and the experience, Kriti said, "The journey of working in this film has been great, and this is the fastest film for me. Everything was quite quick with the film. I’m always instinctive with the film and Lukka Chuppi has an interesting subject. The story here is different, hilarious and has a lot of elements, which is quite different from the other stories and scripts. The characters, especially Rashmi, are fresh, relatable and modern, despite the deep roots in Mathura."

Kriti started her career with Tiger Shroff in Heropanti and with every project she has tried to deliver a new side of her skill. Sharing a thought on the same thereby telling us about her satisfaction since her film, Kriti said, "I really want to grow with every film and it is very important. I’m critical about my performance and I’m never satisfied. I have learnt on every set, especially with Heropanti, where we learnt the technicalities and understood the fundamentals of film making. Raabta opened me up as an actor where I had a lot to do, for the first time. It was layered and complicated. I was pushed in a nice way to approach the scene differently – where I had prepped for the role for the first time. Bareilly made me grow a lot, as I had worked with the new set of actors. The ensemble was brilliant and the energy was completely different. I found the process of picking up different nuances – be it the dialect, body language, mannerisms etc. Over the years, I have tried to find my process, thereby figure what works for me and what doesn’t."

In a conversation with Karan Johar on a TV show, she mentioned about her struggle and how she worked her way into the industry by focusing only on her career. On being asked if the scenario today has changed for outsiders, she told Mumbai Live, "The industry has definitely become more open than it was before. Performance and talent matters in today’s time, but having said this, I somewhere still feel it is very difficult even today to break and step into mainstream cinema. People are welcoming more new faces, however, it is very challenging for an outsider even today. Having said that, today when we see many outsiders doing good work here, it is motivating and gives confidence to people, directors, and filmmakers to give a chance to them."

For the first time, she will be seen opposite Kartik Aaryan in the film. Talking about her experience of sharing the screen space with the beloved 'Sonu,' she said "Kartik is a fantastic actor. He is apt for the film. I got this film before he was onboard, but the dates did not match. He came on board later, and I joined the team after that. We connect as actors and as characters in this film."

Lukka Chuppi is Kriti's first release of 2019, and she will be seen as Rashmi in the film produced by Maddock films and directed by Laxman Utekar. This year, she will also be seen in Housefull 4, Arjun Patiala and Tanaji.
