This year, Kriti completed five long years in Bollywood. However, her journey into the world of glam and glitz was not at all planned but a by chance hit. The actress was studying in electronics and communication at Noida's Jaypee Institute of Information Technology when a modelling assignment suddenly came her way and then she got her big break opposite Tiger Shroff in Heropanti. The diva proved to us that she is here to stay for a long-long time.
Recently, Kriti and her mother, Geeta were invited on the Firstpost show, Familly Matters, wherein, the actress' mother opened up on her opinion about Kriti being in a live-in relationship. When the interviewer asked her whether it was okay for Kriti to be in a Luka Chuppi situation, Geeta ji replied, "No. Actually, I have seen that live-in relationships do not end in a marriage."

While Kriti's mother perfectly explained her stance on live-in relationships, Kriti too put her point across and asked her where has she seen it. To which her mother said "Look around yourself. This happens. After some time you get bored with each other and you have an option [to get out of the relationship]." At this point, Kriti recalled an interview from her Luka Chuppi days, when her mom was okay with her being in a live-in and questioned her mom why has she changed her stance now and asked her mother, "What if I tell you I'll be living with a guy for a year to see if I'm compatible or not. And then if I feel I'm compatible I'll get married. Are you okay with that?" To this, her mother replied, "I don't know, when the situation comes, then only I will know."
In the same interview, Kriti's mother revealed that she never believed in her daughter's dream, and stated, "I never believed in her because she was a shy child. I used to tell her ki tum mein itna confidence nahin hain but it was she who believed in herself." Kriti explained her statement further, and said, "I had stage fright, I was very nervous to do anything. During my exams, I used to stop eating the night before. I was someone who used to take a lot of stress."
Kriti also shared that her father was the one, who was scared when she talked about her acting dream, "When I wanted to act, my father was very scared of a lot of things and that was probably one of the reasons why he did not want to sign that contract. He was protective. After that he is equally or maybe more excited to see me on screen but she (my mother) was like, ‘There’s a lot that I wanted to learn, to do, a lot that I dreamt of but never got a chance to fulfill it. So if you dream of something you should go for it.’ That is maybe the advice that has changed my life.”
Coming back to her acting journey, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, she had shared that she still cannot believe how time flew. She had stated, "I feel a lot more comfortable, a lot more at home now. Feels like these five years just flew by quickly. At times, I still feel like a newcomer. It’s my good fortune that I got the right kind of opportunities, met the right people and reached where I am today."
Kriti was further asked that who she thinks is behind her successful journey, to this, she had replied, "My hard work, of course. But more than that, my audience. It’s because of their unconditional love and support, not just on social media but also in real life, that made me work harder, gave me this standing. I couldn’t imagine this journey being so great without them in my life."
In another interview, Kriti had revealed that she used to get a lot of negative comments in her struggling days, "There were days when I was annoyed and irritated. On some days, I used to cry, because there was nothing to keep me busy. There were also times when I met a few people who told me that something was not right about me — someone told me, ‘You’re too good-looking. There has to be some sort of imperfection in you to look real on screen.’ I think I did feel low, but at the same time, I did have people who believed in me a lot. That’s what you need. I think that gave me a little more confidence." (Don't Miss: Sameera Reddy's Son Hans Brings His Newborn Sister Home Cuddled In His Arms, It Is A Sight To Behold)
