Starting with Fugly in 2014 to Lust Stories in 2018, Kiara Advani has had a progressive career graph. After essaying the role of MSD’s wife, Sakshi successfully in his biopic, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, Kiara quickly shifted to the South Indian industry with Bharat Ane Nenu opposite Mahesh Babu which was also a massive hit. But with her latest Netflix outing, Lust Stories, Kiara has just climbed one more ladder of success. In a casual conversation, Gayathri Menon curates the tech side of the new Mast Mast girl.
“ I think the most important of it all being your phone. For me, I can’t live without my phone. It’s the first thing I check when I wake up and also the last thing I see before I sleep. So my phone is really important. Also, my iPad is also really important because I need a relatively larger screen when I am travelling. So yeah, my iPhone and my iPad are the two techs I cannot live without. And headphones that have a very good sound system. ”
Exhibit: To begin with, congratulations on the success of Lust Stories. It has received great reviews. Is there any story behind this role?
I feel really lucky to get the opportunity to work with Karan sir that too at the beginning of my career. It is known fact that he directs very few films now and it is a dream come true to be a part of such a project. Like millions, I am also a die-hard fan of Karan Johar movies, I have grown up watching his films. I even remember every dialogue of every film. So when that call came, I was in shock and asked if somebody could pinch me or don’t wake me up if it is a dream! But thankfully, this dream was a reality and I’ll always be grateful to him.
Exhibit: Was acting always your ambition?
Absolutely!! I always wanted to be a Bollywood actress. I knew this since I was about 2 or 3 years old. Acting is the only thing in my life that I was so sure although I didn’t know how to go ahead with this. It was probably the songs and dances in films that had a great impact on me. So that made me interested and I aspired to see myself there on the big screen doing just that. […]
