Model-turned- actor Kriti Kharbanda is a popular actress in Sandalwood and Tollywood, who was born in
New Delhi and brought up in Bangalore. She took active part in dramas and other cultural activities when she was in college, which gave her space in acting and even modeling. Even in her college days, she did take up assignments in advertisements. Her much popular advertisement in Fair & lovely caught the attention of an NRI director. Director Raj Pippala was in Chennai in search of a new face for his film “
Boni”( Telugu film in 2009) and happened to see her face on the billboard. He contacted her through a mediator in Bengaluru and she had to go to an audition for the film. As many as 150 new faces had to contest for the heroine role, but luckily she was selected. The film “Boni” did not do well at the box office, despite the fact that it had a star like Sumanth. After completing the Telugu flick Boni, she did a Kannada film ‘Chiru’, which was a moderate hit. Along with Chiru, she appeared in Teen Maar with
Pawan Kalyan (2012) which was also an average grosser. During this period, she did not make any difference with Telugu and Kannada film offers. In 2012, she had two Telugu and two Kannada films. Her release of romantic comedy ‘’Googly’’ was the highest grosser in 2013 which made her a busy actress in Sandalwood. Modeling still interests her a lot. She also hopes to become a jewelry designer in future when she stops acting in films.
Having won many hearts in Sandalwood, this beautiful actress looks very promising now. She is raising the bar with a line up films in Kannada (“Naa Mechida Huduga”, “ Belli”, “Sanju Weds Geetha 2” and “Dalapathy”), which will speak a lot of her acting capabilities. She wants to make her own mark in the industry by doing better movies. Her film
Bruce Lee (Telugu) with
Ram Charan is also eagerly awaited. Whether it is Sandalwood or Tollywood, this actress had got all the right opportunities and she seems to be utilizing them well. She has the luck and even acting skills which have made her a unique star now.
