In an interview with a leading daily, she was asked that as a newcomer she doesn’t get a film a year and does that put her on the back-foot. Replying to this, she said, “I never felt that way because I was constantly shooting. I really had no time. I had two long schedules for Raabta, in Budapest and Mauritius. Then, a 50-day schedule for Bareilly Ki Barfi. I was constantly doing something or the other. Yes, the releases have been spaced quite apart, considering my last film Dilwale released in December 2015. But I don’t have a control in these matters. Raabta was supposed to release in February, but it got pushed.”

Talking about Raabta, she said, “After Raabta, I got to perform a lot and for the first time, I was really excited about a film because of the story. I was thinking so much, there’s so much prep… I was trying to figure out the character with the director. When you do a film like that, you feel different. My heart is with all the films I have done, but Raabta is special. People say I have become choosy with scripts and all. Truth is, I’m not liking any.”

After doing underwater scenes and sword-fighting in Raabta, is Kriti ready for an action film? Her answer to this question was, “I would love to do a film like that. I feel inspired when I see Angelina Jolie do action scenes in Salt. The kind of hard work that goes such films is insane. I have seen her training videos. Whatever little we did in Raabta, it was very difficult. But once you do it, you feel really strong. Something inside you sort of changes. If a good script comes, I would take it up for that reason and not because no one else has done it.”

Are you excited to see the film?
