Here’s how ‘Raabta’ happened to Kriti Sanon
After ‘Heropanti‘ and ‘Dilwale’, actress Kriti Sanon is all set with her next Bollywood release ‘Raabta‘. Ever since the trailer and songs of this film have been released, the sparkling onscreen chemistry between Kriti and her co-star Sushant Singh Rajput is generating a lot of buzz and curiosity among the audiences. Recently, the actress, who has kickstarted the promotions of ‘Raabta’ gave an interview where she talked about how she got the opportunity to work in this film.
While talking to a leading tabloid, the actress was asked about how ‘Raabta’ happened to her, to which she replied saying, “It’s funny, but I share a great relationship with Dinu [director Dinesh Vijan]. We have often discussed scripts which we never worked on. I met him for something else, but we ended up discussing the script for ‘Raabta’. At that time, he wasn’t sure whether he was making the film. I really wanted to do it, as it replicated two different worlds, that were connected to each other. He then called me again to his office and Sushant was also there; he was already on board. Dinu gave both of us a scene [to enact] and he liked our chemistry. He got up and said, ‘chalo, yeh film banate hai‘.” (Also Read: It’s completely baseless, says Kriti Sanon on link-up rumours with Sushant Singh Rajput)
Further, she also chose to spoke about her character Saira in the film and were there any difficulties to switch between the two characters (the other one being the flashback portion).
Kriti said, “Saira is a contemporary girl who stays Alone in Budapest and owns a chocolate shop. I had enough time to portray the different layers to the character. But the flashback portion was a little difficult as it is for about 20-30 minutes; it takes you to a completely different world. I play a warrior in the flashback, I had to convince everyone that I was one. The body language had to be stronger. There were Chase sequences that we shot in the jungles of Mauritius. That was difficult.” [sic]
‘Raabta’ is a love story drama that also carries the subject of reincarnation. It marks the debut of famous producer of films like ‘Love Aaj Kal’, ‘Cocktail‘ and ‘Badlapur’, Dinesh Vijan as a director.
