EXCLUSIVE: Nupur Sanon FINALLY responds to comparisons being made with sister Kriti Sanon
Actress Kriti Sanon has already established her name in the industry. Now with the warm response to Mimi, she has cemented her position further into the industry. Kriti’s sister Nupur Sanon started her career with the music video Filhaal and recently the song’s sequel Filhaal 2 Mohabbat has received a great response. While chatting with Bollywood Bubble exclusively, Nupur has shared her thoughts on being known as Kriti’s sister and the kind of responses she has experienced in the industry.
Nupur also shared how Kriti felt when she was offered Filhaal. She says,“ The first reaction of Kriti was a bit skeptical as Filhaal was a music video. Kriti is a kind of sister that always wants better for her sibling. The beauty of Kriti Sanon is whatever she has gotten, she will always expect more for me. The reason we both agreed on doing Filhaal because of my inclination towards music.”
On the comparison Nupur adds, “The label of Kriti Sanon’s sister is there and whatever I do it will be there. But I am happy that when I read comments now as people have complimented me for Filhaal2 more than Filhaal. They must have noticed the maturity in me as an actor. There has been some great critic comments for me, there are comments where people have praised me and then commented that I have got this only because I’m Kriti Sanon’s sister. I feel that’s typical India, with good thing something bad they will say. So as an individual I thought what is the point after all this, because no one is going to see what I am doing. Then Kriti told me it’s your job, take your journey on your own. Make it more personal. Yes maybe Kriti Sanon would have never done a music video to start with but for me it was a perfect blend of music and acting. And I am close to music also. What better I would want to start with. And I am happy that I have taken my own decision and make this my own journey. I can’t stop people from thinking, I can only prove it by my actions. And I won’t deny there are so many good things attached to me because of being Kriti’s sister.”
