Kiara Advani is one of those actresses in Bollywood who has tried characters of different shades since the beginning of her career. Kiara is always willing to walk that extra mile for her roles. She will be seen in a deglam avatar in her upcoming film Kabir Singh; the Hindi remake of the Telugu hit film, Arjun Reddy. Kiara is playing an introvert and shy college belle – Preeti in the film, and those who have seen the original film will agree that it is an extremely challenging role. Being a method actor, Kiara has pushed the envelope in more ways than one, so as to completely immerse herself in her character.
Do you want to know what Kiara did to prep for this challenging role? Kiara’s character in the film stays in the college hostel. In reality, Kiara has never experienced the hostel life so, in order to understand how students stay in a hostel, she actually stayed in the hostel for one whole week.
Recalling her hostel experience, Kiara said, “Since I’m from Mumbai and also went to college in Mumbai I had never stayed in a hostel before but my character Preeti stays in one. I really wanted to understand how life in a hostel is for young students and so I decided to stay in one for a few days. The experience was absolutely enriching and it helped me while I interacted with the students.”
In Kabir Singh, Kiara is playing Shahid Kapoor’s love interest. The movie is releasing on June 21.
