Kirti Kulhari has been confirmed to play the female lead opposite Emraan Hashmi in Netflix series ‘Bard of Blood’.
The actress , who is currently seen in Amazon Prime Video series ‘Four More Shots Please!’, also featured in the recent hit ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’. Kulhari was cited in The Asian Age saying, “I am playing a Baluchi girl in the series. I am Emraan’s love interest in the series.”
Kulhari has regularly been seen in a number of female centric films including ‘Pink’, ‘Indu Sarkar’ and the upcoming film ‘Mission Mangal’. Upon being called the “torchbearer” of women empowerment, she said, “I think torchbearer is too big a word. I am just a medium to the kind of cinema that is being made. It is right that I have been part of Pink, Four More Shots Please! and now Mission Mangal where most of the crew in the team of Mangalyaan were women. There are men too in the film, but the majority is women.”
She added, “The response for Four More Shots Please! has been amazing. Amazon was also thrilled. I went off social media three months back but I am told that the response on social media has been amazing,” says Kirti about the series that seems to be a younger version of the Sex And The City.
“The vibe of the show is very Sex and the City. It is not wrong to be influenced by something like that. But yes, the vibe is very much like that. We are very far behind when it comes to discussing sex and other relationship and we brush it under the carpet. While we are a little late than some other countries. It is never too late.”
Kulhari also confirmed that second season of ‘Four More Shots Please’ is also in the pipeline.
