Actress Kriti Sanon has been enjoying success at the box office with her comedy films like Luka Chuppi and Bareilly Ki Barfi, where she played the female lead. In Luka Chuppi, Kriti Sanon played a politician’s daughter, who wants to have a live-in relationship with a television reporter played by Kartik Aaryan. She wants to do this despite her family and the society’s conservative views on the subject of cohabitation.

The film, directed by Laxman Utekar, earned INR 1.289 billion at the box office. However, the success of the film has largely been attributed to Kartik. Speaking about this to Bombay Times, Kriti said that though this happens at times, most people are scared about not mentioning the contribution of female actors.
"They fear that we might tweet about it. Once the conversation started, Arjun (Kapoor) and I also tweeted because a similar incident happened when they started talking about the clash of Panipat and Pati Patni Aur Woh. There are times when actresses are not given as much importance as the actors, even when it comes to mentioning them in the headline. You don’t call a romantic film a girl’s movie," she said.
The actress, who will next be seen in Arjun Patiala, added, "Some people have a tendency to write in detail about the male lead’s performance and just two lines describing the leading lady’s work. That, too, they focus more on how pretty she looked. Now, that’s upsetting. Even if you didn’t like my performance or want to criticise me, please write about it. I would love that feedback. Having said that, not everyone does it. The scenario is changing and it will probably get better with more people addressing the issue. I always treated Luka Chuppi as my film and am glad that it did well. I avoid paying attention to negativity, as it spoils my happy moments."
