Kiara Advani: Arjun Reddy worked because it had mass appeal


It had that mass appeal because everyone could identify with these people. She’s got all those qualities which I may have sometimes, but most of the time I am more expressive. I think today you never know what works. It may be a film, a short film, an ad or even a picture on Instagram which makes you a star. Have you faced anything of that sort in real life? I cannot wait to share that film with you all. And then to play someone who isn’t that responsive. All three people you named are such fine actors. So somewhere to some extent, we know that you have been in that place in your life. We have problems, differences, issues and we deal with it differently. When you perform with somebody who is such a fine actor, then it only betters your performance. Also, I feel today films represent society so whatever’s happening in society and in the world today the film is only mirroring that. And that’s how you overcome that. It’s such a simple, beautiful character. In an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com, Kiara gets candid about Kabir Singh, which is a remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, and her new found fame. Here are excerpts from the conversation:
Has Kiara Advani arrived in Bollywood? I just said it so different from me. Otherwise, Preeti is a lot simpler and calm. Popular Photos

There are some people who think that Kabir Singh shows a lot of aggressive love. Everyone has layers and has their strengths and weaknesses. I believe when the film releases and that comes up, then we can talk about it. I am so happy it is coming in December. It is in December. Let’s see what I can do with it. It is amazing on paper, and it is a full family film. The date is announced. So these are things which happen. Advertising

It is so early. I think the beauty was to play someone who is simple from the outside but really strong from the inside. People don’t know yet what they will be seeing in it because they have probably read or heard about it from the original. We have all been in love. We have all been through heartbreak. For me, being an actor is the most important thing and what I got from Lust Stories was people finally accepting me as an actor. It is a social comedy-drama and such a topical film. So as an actor, it has only made me better working with such fabulous actors. They all realised this has happened in my life. 0
Comment(s) So if I ever end up with someone, I’ll prioritise it. These are two characters who are flawed in their own ways. I don’t think so. But why do you say this? Nobody is black or white. Advertising

Kiara, who was also seen in Telugu hit film Bharat Ane Nenu, was last seen in Karan Johar’s Kalank. In Kabir Singh, she plays medical student Preeti. Kabir Singh shows intense romance. But till it doesn’t release, it’s all presumptions. I am very animated in my conversations. So you think that reflects the audience preferences and the changing trends in Bollywood?

Then there is Good News also with such a fabulous star cast. I am an all or nothing person. Kiara Advani and Shahid Kapoor in a still from Kabir Singh. I think the way Preeti is loyal in love, I would say I am loyal. I think I have a very long way to go. How did the inspiration come for your character? Advertising

An anthology film (Lust Stories) did for you more than any Bollywood film did. No love story is perfect. Yes, it is a remake. What have your co-stars like Shahid Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and Sushant Singh Rajput contributed to you as an actor or your talent? So yeah, I think it is a film that I would forever be grateful for. So it was a huge turning point in my career. What can you share about it? So those were the challenging bits but that’s what excited me when I took up this role. I would not have so many dialogues to express what I am thinking but I still have to express what I am thinking. I am happy with the response and the love, but I feel I have a long way to go to say that I have arrived. More Explained
