IBNS-CMEDIA: Actress Kriti Sanon, who has delivered several Box Office hits in her career, recently admitted that she felt frustrated when she saw star kids getting better opportunities than her.

Kriti said she felt restless at one point of time in her career since she was not getting the proper opportunity to showcase her talent.

“I wanted something where I could just show my potential as an actor way more. I always say this that as an actor ‘Aapko jitna ghada milega, utna hi aap bhar sakte ho. Agar aapko chota vessel diya jayega toh usme aap utna hi paani bhar sakte ho. Agar aapko bada diya jayega toh aap aur bhar sakte ho (You can only fill a vessel with as much as it holds. If it’s small, you can only pour in so much water. If it’s big, you can pour in more.) So I was looking for that bada vessel for a very long time.”

“I was getting frustrated because I was like, I know I can do it; I know I can kill it, but I don’t have it in front of me. At that point, I was also seeing some new faces, some of them belonging to the film background, coming in having not done anything and getting opportunities that I was like, how?” she said looking back at her career which started with the release of Heropanti in 2014.

Speaking on Mimi, the movie which helped her bag the National Award, she said: “So I did have that phase where I was like, I need something more. Then Mimi happened. Somewhere, I believe that everything happens for a reason and at the right time. For me I think maybe Mimi happened when I was actually ready to take up that role and do justice to that character. Maybe it didn’t happen before for the same reason.”

Kriti starred in Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya and Crew this year so far.

Kriti has worked in several popular Bollywood movies which include Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) and Luka Chuppi (2019), Dilwale (2015) and Housefull 4 (2019).
