"people are always trying to find something negative."
Kriti Sanon stated that she loves her job as an actress, however, there are some aspects that she finds difficult to understand, especially the “judgement” public figures have to face.
She said that people have become more judgemental, especially over the past year.
Kriti elaborated: “I think people judge too much.
“This one year, I just felt people have no tolerance and are judging others left, right and centre on anything and everything.
“There’s no patience, and people are always trying to find something negative.
“I understand that the times we are in can frustrate us, as everyone’s going through issues in their personal and professional lives.”
She added that the difficult times should make people “want to be kinder to each other”.
The constant scrutiny has now made Kriti become more conscious of what she says or writes on social media.
She admitted: “I used to be a lot freer about what I said earlier, but the environment has kind of made me feel I should not speak if I don’t need.
“I’ve become a lot more conscious of what I speak.”
While Kriti Sanon likes to voice her opinion, she says:
“People need to realise that when people actors speak, their opinion is theirs, it doesn’t have to match anyone else’s. I feel we need to be a lot more open-minded and not so judgmental.
“In today’s world, free speech and hate speech have become similar, which it should not.”
On the work front, Kriti Sanon has around five films that are in various stages of production.
Mimi was set to release in 2020, post-production has been delayed due to the pandemic.
Bachchan Pandey and Bhediya are now set to release during the first half of 2022.
While the Covid-19 crisis has affected various industries, Kriti revealed that the situation has made her realise how passionate she is about acting.
She explained: “The one thing I realised in the past year when we were all at home and not working (amid the pandemic) is that I really crave to be on set.
“It makes me happy. I love what I do. I get a lot alive in front of the camera and literally forget everything.”
Kriti is now set to work on the mythological film, Adipurush.
On another note, she said that her parents sometimes complain that “I don’t talk to them, because I genuinely just belong to the place I am in”.
