Actress Kriti Sanon made her Bollywood debut five years ago with “Heropanti”, and since then has never looked back. Last year, she featured in the multistarrer biggie “Housefull 4” with Akshay Kumar, and also starred in the multiplex superhit “Lukka Chuppi” opposite Kartik Aaryan. Her other two films last year, “Panipat” and “Arjun Patiala”, may have fared below expectations but her performance in these films were applauded.


Kriti feels she is evolving as an actor.

“I have definitely evolved as an actor over the years. I had no training in any filmmaking course, and I don’t have a film background. Whatever I have learned is on the job. My acting process is very organic and spontaneous but it does require a bit of homework. There’s no fixed formula. One should be able to understand his or her craft better, and figure out what’s working and what’s not. Or, one needs to work by hit and trial or think of how else you can surprise the audience. All these things keep me growing,” she told IANS.

Kriti also believes in analysing her work. “When it comes to my performance I am very much critical about it. I analyse my performances and see what went wrong or right. I feel the day I really get happy or satisfied then my mind will become stagnant. That’s what I don’t want.

“I have learned from mistakes and by doing this, I feel I have broadened my horizon. Now I look at things from different perspective,” she added.

Not only this, the 29-year-old is now open to do more risky and challenging roles. And this realisation came to her a little more after portraying the role of Parvati Bai in Ashutosh Gowariker’s “Panipat”.

“Roles like Parvati Bai encourage you and give you the confidence of doing something different. It was not easy for me to essay that character because it was based on a real person who is an important figure of our history. I am fortunate that I got the chance to do that role and I feel I am more confident to take risks now and surprise people, and myself too.”

In 2020, Kriti is all set to woo her fans with the roles she has never done before on screen. She will be seen playing a surrogate mother in “Mimi”, and is also a part of Akshay Kumar’s “Bachchan Pandey”.

“I am very much excited for ‘Mimi’ because it is the first film that weighs completely on my shoulders. The topic of the film is very important and not many films have properly been made on the subject of surrogacy. I am very happy to work with people who have managed to create such an important movie,” Kriti emphasised. (IANS)

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.
