It’s been seven years since Kriti Sanon made his Bollywood acting debut with the film Heropanti. Over the years, she has worked on improving her art with each film. Today, Kriti has an interesting lineup of films including Mimi, Bachchan Pandey, Bhediya and Ganapath. In a recent discussion with Bollywood Hungama, Kriti Sanon spoke about films that have helped her evolve as an actor.
Asked about the films that helped her form as an actor, she named two films that were released back to back. “I would say in fact a combination of Raabta and Bareilly Ki Barfi. I received a lot of praise for my performance in Bareilly and that sort of thing was a milestone in my career where people woke up with me and saw me as an actor. But I realize that I could do what I could do in Bareilly because I was coming from a movie that I gave a lot in terms of preparation which is Raabta. Bareilly was shot in one schedule in 45 days. I gave Raabta about a year. I never prepared for any movie as much as I did for this movie. Even though the film didn’t work, I think I gained a lot from it. I think it opened up something in me and I kind of became more uninhibited and it helped me Bareilly Ki Barfi,” she said.
Both Bareilly Ki Barfi and Raabta was released in 2017. Directed by Dinesh Vijan, Raabta also played the lead role of the late Sushant Singh Rajput, while Bareilly Ki Barfi directed by Ashwini Iyer Tiwari also played Rajkummar Rao and Ayushmann Khurrana.
“But if I had to count the movie that didn’t come out, then it would definitely be Mimi because the experience I had Mimi has been so satisfying as an actor. It gave me the platform to sort of explore scenes and emotions that I’ve never experienced in my life. This whole process of being a mother and the journey you are going through is something you only know when you have done it. The child in your body, all the transformations of your body during childbirth. These are all experiences that I haven’t had. It’s just something you can borrow from something you’ve heard, read, seen, and then believe you experience. I think Mimi gave me a lot to explore as an actor. I think Laxman (Utekar) sir really believed in me which pushed me beyond what I thought I could do, ”she added.
Mimi was completed a year ago. However, the directors have yet to decide on a release date despite the announcement by several filmmakers of the release dates for their films. Asked about its release, Kriti said, “So far from what the producers told me, it’s theatrical. We hope movies start to work and people start going to the movies. The date has not been announced because a movie like Mimi needs a good release date to get what it deserves. It’s not like a massive movie like let’s say one Sooryavanshi and 83 which are more of those bigger massy movies. It’s a very content-driven movie. I think he needs his breath. Once the theaters start operating for real, I think they will probably announce it. “
