From a horror-comedy to an out-and-out entertainer and an action film, Kriti has a variety of movies lined up. What makes it interesting is that in these films, she reunites with some of her previous co-stars. The actress will be seen with Akshay Kumar in Bachchan Pandey, opposite Varun Dhawan in Bhediya and with Tiger Shroff in Ganapath and the sequel to their debut film, Heropanti (2014).
Elaborating on working with Akshay again, Kriti says, “The first time I worked with Akshay sir was in Housefull 4 (2019). He is someone who’s always fun to be with on the set. This time around, the entire team was in Jaisalmer, shooting together for 45 days. With him at work, you tend to have lunches, dinners, basically all meals together. It’s like a lot of people on one table. It became like one big family. During breaks, we used to play games like housie and ludo.”
Kriti also got together again with Varun, with whom she worked in Dilwale (2015). “It’s been six years since we worked together. I think both of us have grown as actors and individuals. He is married now, but he is still the same, only a little more mature than before (laughs!). Bhediya, which is a monster-comedy, is drastically different from what we did in our last project, so it is great fun.”
The actress, who made her Bollywood debut in 2014 with Heropanti along with Tiger Shroff, cannot contain her excitement as she teams up with him again in Ganapath. What’s interesting about this project is that, this is the first time Kriti will flaunt her action avatar on screen.
“I have always wanted to do an action film, and who better to do it with than Tiger? For this film, I will have to get the hang of riding a dirt bike. Also, action as a genre is new for me, so I will be spending a lot of time prepping up when it comes to technicalities and stunts. I’ve wanted to do the kind of roles Uma Thurman has done. I always felt like I could make better use of my height and long legs, and here I am getting a chance to do that,” she signs off.
