By all means, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana would stay on to be one of the career defining films for Kriti Kharbanda. Though she had done quite a few films in Hindi as well as South languages over the years, it was the romantic drama with Rajkummar Rao that saw quite some recognition coming the way of the young actress. By playing the character of Aarti Shukla, Kriti pretty much ensured that the film would be remembered for years to come.
Now she is set to gain something similar coming out of Taish as well which has her playing the part of a Pakistani doctor Arfa.
“While Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana was a film about a couple which goes through a roller coaster ride en route their marriage, Taish is more of an ensemble affair. However, this too is centered on a wedding and what goes wrong subsequently. There are quite a few characters who come together in the series of events that follow. Whether it is Kriti and Sanjeeda Sheikh, the leading ladies of the film, or Pulkit Samrat, Harshvardhan Rane or Jim Sarbh, a lot changes in everyone’s life,” informs our source.
Kriti, who has always stayed on to be graceful as ever in all her films, be it horror [Raaz Reboot], comedies [Guest Iin London, Housefull 4 or Pagalpanti] or romance [Veerey Ki Wedding], Taish is turning out to be a film which requires a performance oriented approach from her.
“From Aarti to Arfa, it has been quite a journey for Kriti,” a close associate adds, “She has done around 20 films already down south and has gained experience over the years. She is continuing to be very cautious of what she signs and when a film like Taish came her way which required her to surrender to the vision of director Bejoy Nambiar, she was game for it.”
With Taish releasing in the film as well as the web series version on ZEE5, one can catch Kriti Kharbanda in action as Arfa.
