2019 turned out to be a good year for actress Kriti Sanon. On one hand, her comic-caper Housefull 4 inflamed the box-office and went on to emerge as one of the most commercially successful movies of the year. On the other hand, she received unanimous praises for the subtle portrayal of Parvati Bai in filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker’s ambitious historical drama Panipat.
