Kiara Advani recently marked one year of ‘Lust Stories’, which is the online film which changed the course of her career. Talking about this, the actress also addressed how much choice there is for actors these days.
“Today there are so many options available to show your skills, be it in films of your own language or doing regional cinema or being part of the web world. One has to look at every avenue because there is so much work out there – regional films, web. Language is not a barrier anymore. And I want to be known as a Pan-India artiste”, said Advani, talking to PTI.
She also went on to say she’s happy with the way her career has shaped up so far, “My first film did not do well so people were not sure to work with me, even when I would approach some directors that I wanted to work. And now the same directors are working with me. Tables turn like that. “MS Dhoni was a changing point as a lot of people took notice. Then my next film Machine did not do well commercially but the recreated song Cheez Badi grabbed eyeballs. My south films really got me back into action. In Bollywood, it was Lust Stories that gave me an opportunity to act”.
Advani will begin shooting for the Vikram Batra biopic soon. Her next release is ‘Kabir Singh’ which releases this week.
