Kriti Sanon feels actors evolve with every film

She also opines that having a celebrity status takes one's privacy away.


Actress Kriti Sanon says her films Raabta and Bareilly Ki Barfi 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," Sanon told IANS.

Sanon walked the ramp for designer Arpita Mehta on the last day of Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/ Festive 2017.

Though Raabta failed to garner good business at the box office, Sanon'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 said.

Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, the film also stars Rajkummar Rao and Ayushmann Khurrana.

Talking about coming back on the ramp, Sanon said that her modelling experience has helped her a lot too. "It helped a lot as 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 added.

Asked what she thinks about models complaining that showstoppers, who are called from the Hindi film fraternity, are stealing their job, Sanon said: "I am not stealing their job any ways. I was a model so I never felt that way. I think firstly they are stunning and they know their job well."

Sanon ventured into Hindi films in 2014 with Heropanti and since then has managed to create a space for herself in Hindi cinema.

The actress, however, feels that having a celebrity status takes one's privacy away, "Its 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," she said.
