Career   Film debut and rise to prominence ( 2014-2015)   Kriti Sanon received her first film offer from the Telugu film industry through Sukumar’s directorial psychological thriller flick 1: Nenokkadine which had her pairing opposite Mahesh Babu in the lead. The movie which narrated the story of a schizophrenic rock musician who hallucinates three people who he thinks killed his parents at his young age and the subsequent entry of a nosy female journalist to the picture who helps him crackhis illness and the mystery behind his parent’s death. Sanon brought much believability and conviction to the table amidst the surreal like unwinding of events and was seen getting to the mix of things in a jiffy. Although the movie garnered only moderate reviews, she went on to fetch much fame with her impressive debut though a portion panned her for being too blank at places.   Kriti later the same year in 2014 was called upon to make her Hindi film debut with Sabbir Khan’s action drama flick Heropanthi along with Tiger Shroff in the lead.

The movie had nothing spectacular for her in store and she was pretty much limited to the usual clichéd heroine parts in action oriented mass entertainer productions where her main job is to just look good on screen and play second fiddle to the lead hero.   Kriti had a huge turnaround in the latter part of 2015 when she was picked to play the love interest of Varun Dhawan in Shah Rukh Khan starrer romantic action flick Dilwale which also had Kajol playing the central female lead with SRK. The Rohit Shetty directorial which had polarizing responses was a huge revelation for Sanon as she gained just the right amount of exposure with the grandeur of the project. The blockbuster hit movie made her an overnight star of Hindi cinema although she practically just had to a hero centric entertainer by being the ever so gorgeous and charming lady along with Kajol.  Her portions with Shah Rukh Khan and Varun Dhawan all proved to be a huge ignition point for her career prospects in Bollywood which is to come in the near future.   Upcoming films ( 2017)   Kriti Sanon’s next project is the Sushant Singh Rajput starrer flick Raabta helmed by Dinesh Vijayan.
