Kriti Sanon will breakdance in Bareilly Ki Barfi

The actress will be seen playing a "tomboyish character" in the upcoming film directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari.


Actress Kriti Sanon, who will be seen playing a "tomboyish character" in the upcoming film Bareilly Ki Barfi, says it was a very fresh for her to play a character from Uttar Pradesh.

Talking about the role in Bareilly Ki Barfi, Sanon said, "It's a very tomboyish character. She is a girl living in Bareilly but doing things on her own terms. She is someone who is quite bratty and who questions the basic norms."

The 26-year-old actress says her character does breakdance in the film, and has traits which make her different from other girls in Bareilly.

"What I really like about the film is also the fact that every relationship is shown very nicely... Also, for me to play a UP girl was very fresh," she added.

Bareilly Ki Barfi is directed by Nil Battey Sannata fame director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari. Slated to be released on 21 July next year, it is a romantic comedy rooted in the subculture of the north Indian city Bareilly.

The film also stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao.

Meanwhile, the Dilwale actress is currently promoting her forthcoming film Raabta directed by Dinesh Vijan.
