Kriti reveals how she transformed into Bitti for ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’

If you’ve seen the trailer and songs of the soon-to-release movie ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, you would have noticed Kriti Sanon‘s bindaas and outspoken character of Bitti, a girl from Bareilly. It’s the first time that the actress is essaying a role like this, so of course we were keen to know what went into the making of this character.

So, in a recent interaction, the actress was quizzed how she prepared herself for the part and how she got the dialect of a girl from UP. “I think it was interesting for me as I have not done this before. I have never been to UP or lived with someone who is from UP so I didn’t know the lingo. I went a week before we started shooting, to Lucknow. Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari (director) was sending us pictures of locations when she was on recce there. She was like, ‘See Bitti this is your house, this is your balcony and this is your galli.’ So, I went there a week before, I saw my house, I saw the galli and all,” Kriti quipped.

She further said, “Then, I spoke to a lot of girls. I went to one college and the principal was very sweet to let 15-20 girls talk to me for about 1-2 hours. I was just chatting with them normally like a friend. Then, I told them that I’m recording their conversation and they were okay with it. They started talking about their boyfriends, what they do, where they are from, how they came, a lot of them were living in PGs. And agar koi ladka chhedta hai toh kaise react karte hai, toh woh dheere dheere kaafi open up ho gayi thi. Then, when I came back, I was just listening to that conversation for the rest of the week because I feel, you know sometimes, when you spend too much time with one friend, you start talking like the friend, you pick up a few things from people around you. So, I just didn’t know the process and I followed this and felt that this might be a good way to get the hang of their language and the way they talk, where they take pauses and all.”

So, this is how Kriti transformed herself into the feisty Bitti who breakdances and reads English novels. ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, it is directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, written by Nitesh Tiwari and will be releasing on August 18, 2017.
