I want to be known as a Pan-India artist: Kiara Advani
Kiara Advani says as an actor she does not limit herself to a medium or language as she hopes to establish herself as a Pan-India artiste. After getting her Bollywood breakthrough MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, the 26-year-old actor went on to feature in films opposite Telugu stars Mahesh Babu (Bharat Ane Nenu) and Ram Charan (Vinaya Vidheya Rama).
"Today there are so many options available to show your skills, be it in films of your own language or doing regional cinema or being part of the web world. "One has to look at every avenue because there is so much work out there - regional films, web. Language is not a barrier anymore. And I want to be known as a Pan-India artiste," Kiara told PTI in an interview.
The actor said after success, she has become a bit careful about choosing projects. "I feel you can't keep waiting. You have to be patient but at the same time you have to choose the right offer because if you are not picking up good content, someone else will. "There is so much incoming (content) for the audience. You have to be seen and capture their minds and hearts. You never know what work is reaching whom and who is liking what." Kiara made her debut with Akshay Kumar-produced Fugly, that bombed at the box office.
