Kriti Kharbanda refuses to indulge in woman-centric film


Having featured in the Bollywood film Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana opposite Rajkummar Rao, actress Kriti Kharbanda doesn’t wish to be a part of a women oriented films at present. Speaking to IANS, Kriti said, “Honestly, I do not want to indulge in a woman-centric film just now. I am not as famous as I wish to be and therefore, I do not have the ability to pull the crowd to the theatre. Yes, if you are asking as an artiste, with a good story, it is a lucrative thing to act in a woman-centric film. Having said that, I cannot let my producer suffer because of my creative satisfaction. I think in the south I can do it, especially in the Kannada film industry. I am popular enough to do a woman-centric film there.”

Kriti’s journey to film industry started during her modeling days wherein she debuted in a Telugu film. The actress got her ticket to Bollywood with Guest In London. Her next release Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana starring opposite National Award winner actor Rajkummar Rao is slated to release today.

“I think I have learnt how to be a good co-actor because he is really the one. I heard people saying how in a Rajkummar Rao film, people only watch him in the frame and he could overshadow others. But I must say, he is such a good co-actor who always lets you act your best, because acting also has a lot depending on reacting,” said Kriti.

When asked about which actors and directors she would like to collaborate, she said, “I want to work with Sriram Raghavan, Imtiaz Ali, Karan Johar and of course any other director who is offering a great role to play in a film. And when it comes to heroes, whether it is Varun Dhawan, Ranveer Singh or Ranbir Kapoor — everyone is different and working with each of them, I will get a chance to embrace some of their qualities. So I would love to work with all of them.”
