Kriti Sanon has been scaling great heights and the actress has worked hard to carve a space for herself. Having won a slew of accolades, Kriti made waves in 2023 as she won the National Film Award for Best Actress for her role in the comedy-drama Mimi. However, she had to share the award with Gangubai Kathiawadi actress Alia Bhatt. Following which many reports that surfaced the internet suggested that Kriti was jealous of Alia.
Now, in a recent interview, the Raabta actress finally turned candid to the question of whether she is jealous of her contemporaries.
In the last season of Koffee With Karan, Kriti Sanon graced the couch with Tiger Shroff. During the chat, Karan Johar asked her about envy, jealousy, and competition with her contemporaries like Alia Bhatt who is being named among the best actors in the industry.
In a recent interview with Zoom, the host revisited the old video and asked Kriti to share her views on the matter. Responding to the same, the Heropanti actress said, “Honestly, both of us winning the National Award together was sort of an answer to everything. If you’re given good opportunities, no matter where you come from, if you have the talent, you’re going to make it. So, it’s all about getting the opportunities and great opportunities like Mimi and Gangubai don’t come every day. So, I hope people write more stuff like that.”
Karan asked Kriti if watching her contemporaries reach new heights is driving her to reach the same level. To this, the actress replied, “Of course, it drives me, it inspires me to do better. When you see great work, you also feel that ‘I would love to have an opportunity like that’. When Mimi as an opportunity came to me, it gave me the confidence to put in so much.”
Meanwhile, on the professional front, Kriti Sanon started the year with Shehzada opposite Kartik Aaryan and was then seen in the movie Adipurush with Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan. Recently she was also seen in Ganpath alongside Tiger Shroff and Amitabh Bachchan. The actress has a slew of interesting projects lined up for 2024 and some of which are The Crew and Do Patti, which she is also producing.
