Kriti Sanon goes deglam for Bareilly Ki Barfi: Kriti Sanon will be seen in her upcoming film Bareilly Ki Barfi which is directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari. The actress will be seen playing a role of a young, free spirited girl named Bitti.
Speaking about the film, the actress said, “For me, it’s the script. It’s the character that excites me. And that’s how I choose my films. I always wanted to explore new things as an actor.”
She added, “I am playing a small town girl for the first time. I am playing a girl from Uttar Pradesh for the first time. I am picking up a dialect for the first time. A de-glam role for the first time.”
The film is based on a French novel called Ingredients of Love. Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari picked up the book at Delhi airport and couldn’t put it down. “I was tired, but I couldn’t put the book down. I even made Nitesh read it and he agreed that the basic story could become the theme for a film,” she added. She further stated she told her producers, Abhay Chopra and Juno Chopra (late filmmaker BR Chopra’s grandsons) about the story immediately. “They put in a lot of effort to contact the publishers in France and procure the rights to the book,” she revealed.
Bareilly Ki Barfi also stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao in the leads. It is slated to release this week on August 18, 2017.
