"I had gotten married in 2016 and I must say here that my ex-husband, Saahil, really supported me in this. He was not a guy who was insecure, who would be like, ‘No you can’t kiss on-screen or have an intimate scene’, which is quite rampant in our industry. I find it very regressive."

However, after patiently waiting for years, Kirti explained that she finally went for the crew haircut and described her experience as empowering. An excerpt from her long note could be read as:
"I have no time to not do what I want to do… and each time I have done something which is not #thenorm, I have felt empowered and nothing short of it . Here I am , making another such choice and living my life #myway. P.S - no it’s for not any role. It’s FOR ME."
