The Housefull 4 actress was diagnosed with Malaria last November. It was advised strict bed rest by her doctor which clashed with the shoot schedule of her upcoming movie, 14 Phere.
“I was detected with malaria in November, and was advised complete bed rest for three weeks. However, I didn’t want the schedule of 14 Phere to go helter-skelter because of me. So I insisted that we start the shoot as per schedule. I was barely 10 days into malaria when I started shooting. Moreover, we were in Lucknow, shooting for nearly 18 hours a day.” says the starlet.
Hours of makeup and prep before each shoot as she essays the role of a bride in the film. In the midst of Malaria, could not have been easy for Kriti but she powered through.
“I lost six kilos, and the stress was showing on my skin and body. I am just happy that I was able to finish the schedule. It wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the entire team.” she says.
Speaking on 14 Phere, Kriti has quite some interesting advise for all the to-be weds out uthere.
With most of the film, 14 Phere being wrapped up. Kriti shares an insight into her rapport with co-star Vikrant Massey and claims,
“If you have a lot of things in common with your co-star. Then it helps to build a rapport and work becomes easier despite all odds. Vikrant is not just a fantastic actor, but a great co-star as well. We bonded over our love for food, comedy and cinema. I am a bit of a moofat, but he gets that, and he doesn’t take offence, so that helped us get along. We spent a lot of time together on set, we even played cricket and cards in our free time.”
