Actress Kirti Kulhari of "Pink" fame didn't grow up watching numerous films. She was also unaware of her acting skills. She says that it was only after her first unreleased film that she realised how much she loved acting. Best known for giving a powerful performance in the 2016 National Film Award-winning film "Pink", Kirti will soon be seen in Madhur Bhandarker's "Indu Sarkar".
What made her pursue acting?
Kirti says "As a kid, I did not grow up watching a lot of films. I was not even sure that I wanted to be an actor. 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. The film did not release, but that shooting made me realise that I love acting and I want to continue as an actor."
She started her career in showbiz with modelling and ad films then she made her Bollywood acting debut with ‘Khichdi: The Movie’ in 2010. The next year, she featured in crime thriller "Shaitan" and went on to do films like ‘Sooper Se Ooper’ and ‘Jal’. But it was only the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer ‘Pink’ that brought her fame. "There was a phase of hits and misses in my career,” she adds.
