New delhi: Kriti Sanon plays a fiercely independent tomboy in her upcoming flick ‘Barielly Ki Barfi’ and feels the ‘role is completely opposite to who I am.’
Kriti’s character is totally of a de-glamourised tomboy who wears denims, kurtas, half jackets and loose pullovers.
Talking about the role, Kriti said, “Rohit Choudhury, who is also in the film and from Lucknow taught us all the intonations, pauses and how to pitch the dialogues.”
“It’s something I have never done before and I get attracted to quirky characters. My role is completely opposite to who I am,” added the ‘Heropanti’ actress.
‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ is a quirky romantic comedy rooted in the sub culture of the north Indian town Bareilly.
Besides Kriti, the film will feature Ayushman as the owner of a printing press, Rajkummar as an author. The trio will be seen working on screen together for the first time.
Directed by Ashwini Iyer Tiwari and produced by Junglee Pictures and BR Studios the film releases on July 21, 2017.
