Pink actor Kirti Kulhari talks about her first unreleased film and upcoming projects Raita, Indu Sarkar


What made her pursue acting? She was also unaware of her acting skills. Many times it happens that actors get a lot of appreciation from critics, fraternity members and the audience, and then go through ‘no work for a long time’ phase. “I was expecting this change. She didn’t expect appreciation from so many people as well as box office success from just one film. Box office success matters to me because that is the sign of how my film is reaching out to a wider audience. The next year, she featured in crime thriller Shaitan and went on to do films like Sooper Se Ooper and Jal. “So, instead of signing random films…while waiting for the good scripts to come my way, I started doing a lot of theatre. Kirti told IANS here: “As a kid, I did not grow up watching a lot of films. During my college days when I worked on a film Dharini for the National Film Development Corporation of India (NFDC), I started enjoying the process of acting.”
“The whole experience was fascinating. “I think this is the right time in Indian cinema for people like us who are trying to strike the balance. That did not pan out well. But I am sure at times, I will do films knowing that they are for the niche yet artistic enough for my soul,” said Kirti. Plays always help me as an actor to grow as a performer,” said Kirti, who has finished shooting for Indu Sarkar and is now gearing up for Delhi Belly fame director Abhinay Deo’s upcoming movie Raita.
