I have the capacity to carry a film on my shoulder: Kirti Kulhari

Kirti is now raring to go with Indu Sarkar, which is about a stammering poetess who rebels against the system and is set in the ’70s. This film is very close to his heart, he has invested a lot of time and effort into it.” It is just that I wasn’t given that opportunity earlier,” Kirti told PTI. Her performance in Pink has not only earned her acclaim but also landed her the protagonist role in Madhur Bhandarkar’s next and Kirti Kulhari says she is confident that she can carry a film all by herself. “It was also good in a way because I have also developed in the last few years. Madhur is known for doing women-centric films and I have been wanting to do a film with him for the longest time. I am glad to be a part of the film and it is the right time for me to do such a film.” Indu Sarkar is about the 21-month Emergency imposed in the country in 1975-77 and Kirti says it is a very important story which needs to be told and she is very proud to be chosen for this role. “I am very glad to be associated with a film like this. “It is indeed long over due for me to play a protagonist. The actress made her Bollywood debut with Khichdi: The Movie in 2010 but it was Shaitan which gave a glimpse of her acting skills. It feels great to be given a protagonist role. I do feel that I have the capacity to carry a full film on my shoulder. However, her career did not scale the heights she had hoped and the actress had to wait till Pink, which released in September this year, to taste success. By: PTI | New Delhi |
