Kriti Sanon made big headlines when she appeared on Karan Johar’s popular celebrity-chat show Koffee With Karan. She graced the show with her debut co-star Tiger Shroff. In the interaction, she talked about missing the opportunity to do Lust Stories.
The Mimi actress revealed that her mother stopped her from doing the project as it was all about the orgasm. The actress had stated, “My mom said no to your (Karan Johar) role because she was not comfortable with the nature of the script, given the focus of it was only on sensual scenes. That is why she said better not to do it. I come from a middle-class family and for them, controversial themes like these can be a little shocking. But I don’t always ask my mother.”
And now, the actress’ mother has finally broken silence on the same. Kriti Sanon and her mother Geeta Sanon recently appeared in an India Today interview.
In the conversation about Netflix’s Lust Stories and rejecting it, Kriti Sanon said, “It was a short film, not a full-fledged film, so my mother said it was a 20-minute thing about only a female orgasm. ‘If you doing a 20-minute thing in a full-fledged film, that would make sense’. That was the whole discussion, so I felt like maybe, I shouldn’t.”
Kriti Sanon’s statement was followed by her mother Geeta Sanon, who said, “I thought we would not be comfortable seeing her doing such a scene at the beginning of her career. It’s about orgasm, only.”
Kriti Sanon also went on to add, “I think her problem was more that it was a short film. I don’t think there’s anything wrong, but how it will be made, how it will look, maybe like Karan said, if he had talked to my mother, it would have been alright.”
The show; Lust Stories was then offered to Kiara Advani who garnered massive popularity after it became a big hit. She was paired with Vicky Kaushal who too got appreciation for such a bold choice of role.
Moreover, on the work front, Kriti Sanon has some amazing projects in her kitty including the soon-to-release Bhediya with Varun Dhawan, Ganapath, Adipurush, and Shehzada.
