Quick 6 with Kriti:
What’s the best thing about your profession?
I get to play dress up every day. And I always get the guy in the film, it’s amazing! Lol
If not an actor, you would be?
A photographer, jewellery designer or a housewife with 3 kids.
We heard you studied jewellery designing, what’s your favourite kind?
I love wearing uncut diamonds. I think polki is something I really like wearing and it’s a complete value for money.
A trend you wish made a comeback.
I think it already has but it is not really out there bell bottoms. I would love to wear them and not be judged.
The last thing you do before you leave your house.
I just bought a mirror which I put at the entrance of my home. I make sure I look at myself and give a big smile before I leave.
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what are the 3 things you’d like with you?
A massage chair, Satish dada and my phone.
