In another episode of Koffee With Karan, Karan had revealed how he had first offered the role played by Kiara Advani in the Netflix film, Lust Stories, to Kriti. However, Kriti had turned down the role saying that her mother wasn’t comfortable with her character in the film.

In Lust Stories, Kiara’s character was seen masturbating using a vibrator in one scene.

On work front, Kriti was last seen in Akshay Kumar-starrer Bachchhan Paandey, which did not do well at the box office. However, her other film, Mimi, earned her plenty of plaudits for her acting prowess.

Her future projects include Adipurush, also featuring Saif Ali Khan and Prabhas among others, Bhedia opposite Varun Dhawan and Ganapath with Tiger Shroff.
