Kriti’s own space

Kriti Sanon says that after spending four years in the industry and starring in Dilwale and Barielly Ki Barfi, she has improved a lot as a performer. The 27-year-old actress, who hails from Delhi, said that to create her own space in films without any support system “feels great”. 

“The fact that I had never thought of becoming an actor in the first place when I was doing BTech... then coming to a completely new city, where I knew no one and now to having done four films and have been able to (have) space of myself on my own, it does feel great,” the actress, who was recently holidaying with rumoured boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput and some friends in the snow-clad mountains of the Alps, told PTI. “With every film I feel I have grown as a person and as an actor. I learnt a lot on my job as I had no real training of being an actor. When I look back at my films and roles and the approach towards work it is different now then what it was earlier. For me growth is more important.” 
The actress said she is open to taking risks if the role interests her. “Whatever opportunities I get I should like it. I am not restricting myself as an actor, I want to play different kinds of characters.” 

Although Raabta in which she starred with Patna boy Sushant did not do well at the box office, Bareilly Ki Barfi was widely appreciated. “I take it all as an experience, whether it is Raabta or Bareilly Ki Barfi, both films have been special to me as an actor. I believed in both the films… When your work gets appreciated, you feel more confident to take up roles that you have not done before, do something that you have not done before.”
