After her web film MIMI, Kriti Sanon has been flying high. She’s been seen receiving coveted awards and being flooded with compliments and bouquets of praise. At the ABP Network’s “Ideas of India” Summit 2023, Kriti was felicitated under “The New Superstar, On Her Own Steam” segment.

Kriti gave her strong opinions on various subjects – from nepotism to being an entrepreneur, to her parents thinking a career in Bollywood was not secure to preparing for MIMI. Read on…

 Starting with, “I don’t like the word serious actor, it is boring.” Kriti gives her take on: “Nepotism is everywhere but in Bollywood, it has been given huge importance. It is not wrong, it is only about having equal opportunity for people, who don’t belong to the film family. I feel opportunities are more when you are connected to a film family.”

She also commented: “Every actor needs a platform to shine.” and that “The harder you work, the luckier you get.” She added, “I failed many times and got disappointed and my mother took a promise from me to clear the G-MAT exam because she felt Bollywood unstable and wanted me to have a safer option.”

On becoming an entrepreneur, Kriti said “Sometimes you need to see bigger dreams and if you wouldn’t believe your dreams, you wouldn’t be able to grow. I can do multiple things, which I have interest in but whatever we do should come out of passion.”

She added, “The Tribe started from MIMI, I gained 15 Kilogram waiting for MIMI and that’s when I started feeling unfit. After this, I met a trainer and I started working out virtually. Before that, I never felt like working out and it was a boring thing. I got this energy from my co-founders of ‘The Tribe’.” Kriti further added, “I want to take fitness everywhere in the world.”

Speaking at the second edition of the “Ideas of India” Summit, Kriti said, “A role like MIMI is required to get the talent out and the roles which don’t have depth can’t have many experiments. Every actor needs a platform to shine.”
