3. From where did you learn acting? Also, according to you – self- learning or Learning from an expert. Which one has more impact?
Kriti – I didn’t go to a drama school to learn acting. So, I wouldn’t know how it is and what one can learn in a drama school. However, it’s always great to learn, experiment, and explore more, and there are so many people out there who are so willing to contribute whatever their learning has been. So. One should always have an open mind.
Also, there are a few things which I want to learn. So maybe an expert can help me with that.
4. What do you feel about the emerging trend of web series?
Kriti – I did my first web series ‘Baked’ which released on scoop whoop. Also, I remember when the Writer/Director said that we are doing a web series, and we were all like what a web series is? We have absolutely no idea, and this was about Four or Five years back, so we all come a long way and I feel it is only getting better.
So this industry is growing. Also, it has so many possibilities, and people are doing some good work as well.
5. Which is favorite show, video or series in which you have acted?
Kriti – It is always nice to say my favorite thing is yet to come, but I feel very close to ‘Baked’ because I think it was my first show and people loved this show and liked my character. Honestly, I have excellent experience and opportunities to work with good people in all the shows I have done. However, I do have a soft corner for Baked.
6. Do you have any dream role?
Kriti – I don’t have a dream role in my mind. However, I want to see myself playing different characters and also to work with different types of people. So according to me, a dream role is made by a dream team.
7. Do you ever think of writing or directing videos, web series or movies?
Kriti – No. because I am already an Interior designer, and that is my second profession. Is Like sometimes I am the interior designer, and sometimes I am an actor, and I liked this combination because both the professions are different from each other.
I haven’t yet thought of directing or writing a film, but one should never say never, so who knows maybe one day I will write or direct something.
8. What was the first reaction of your family when you told them that you want to choose acting as your profession?
Kriti – My family has been very supportive. When I first told them that I want to do this, they were as excited as I was. Also, I don’t look at this as my career because career is a big word. So, I feel scared when I use a word like a profession or career.
9. To whom you look up to? Any role model?
Kriti – So many people inspire me. I don’t have one particular role model. So it’s tough to answer this question.
10. What is your biggest dream?
Kriti – My dream is to keep acting because sometimes what happens is that an actor/actress has finished one project and then they have to wait for another project. So some people get very disappointed because they have to wait for work. So my dream is not to get disappointed in the low phase and always stay positive.
11. What are your upcoming projects?
Kriti – Baked is coming up with the new film. They have made a film instead of season 3. What The Folks is also coming up with season 3. Also, I have done another shoot for Voot.

Nowadays, people are also more accepting of experimental things. So if you are a beginner, then you should get together with your friends or people who are interested in this field, make the team with them and start writing, acting and direction. Just start doing it.
