While the 26-year old actress is still at an early stage in her career, she has managed to share screen space with big stars like Akshay and Kareena. In a recent interview, Kiara spoke about Kareena Kapoor Khan and how she has been an inspiration. She revealed how she had grown up watching Kareena and how the K3G actress was one of the main reasons that Kiara had wanted to pursue an acting career.
“I’ve grown up watching her films. Kareena has been working for so many years and she has evolved as an artiste with every passing film; she’s like wine that just gets better,” Kiara said, also sharing that whenever she used to observe Kareena rehearse on the sets, she used to recall Bebo’s iconic scene from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (K3G) where she says. ‘How dare you? Tumhein koi haq nahi ki tum itni khoobsurat lago….’ Kiara said that Kareena’s character, Poo in K3G, and these dialogues were really meant for her, adding, “She is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen in my life. In fact, she is one of the reasons I became an actress.”
