Kriti Sanon interestingly pursued an engineering degree from the Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, after which she briefly worked as a model. After making her debut in Telugu cinema with the psychological thriller 1: Nenokkadine (2014), Sanon won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut for her performance in Sabbir Khan's action comedy Heropanti (2014), which marked her first Bollywood release.
Sanon has since starred in three commercially successful films, the action romance Dilwale (2015), which ranks as her highest-grossing release, and the romantic comedies Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) and Luka Chuppi (2019).
The actress, who was last seen in Arjun Patiala, has a couple of interesting films coming up including: Housefull 4 and Panipat. And now, according to some reports, she is all set to add another first to her list — a Bollywood thriller. Rumours have it that, Kriti will play an RJ in the film, which revolves around medical scams.
The yet-untitled movie, which will be directed by Rahul Dholakia, is scheduled to hit the floors by the end of August. Kriti is reportedly thrilled about the film. While the story revolves around an important issue, the character also offers a lot of scope to perform, she added.
In a recent interview, the actress talked about her small-town girl avatars winning her more popularity. She said, “In real life, I am a simple, middle-class girl and I connect with middle-class values. So, I find such characters extremely relatable. Having said that, small-town girls are often bolder than their urban counterparts. The success of Bareilly Ki Barfi changed things for me, because earlier, people couldn’t envision me in that world and even I did not see myself belonging there. I was pleasantly surprised that people accepted me as Bitti and then, I was inundated with offers of small-town characters. That’s what happens in this industry, it takes just one character to break an image.”
