Kirti Kulhari on Shaadisthan: Limited budget, but our heart was in right place

It’s hard for Kirti Kulhari to pinpoint the reason that made her choose Shaadisthan — it could well be the character, the central theme or the lure of a road-trip film. “My character Sasha is sorted and empowered. She came across as a person I am hoping to become some day,” begins the actor. The Raj Singh Chaudhary-directed venture revolves around four free-spirited musicians, including Sasha, whose lives collide with that of a small-town couple and their daughter as they travel together from Mumbai to Rajasthan. “I knew it was a small film, but I gravitated towards it because it’s the kind of movie that has to be made. The budgets and resources were limited, but our heart was in the right place.”

Since Pink (2016), Kulhari has portrayed emotionally strong characters that leave her viewers inspired. Be it Anjana Menon in Four More Shots Please! or Sasha in the upcoming Disney+Hotstar film, the actor says she has consciously picked these roles. “Life is no longer happening to me; I am making it happen. I am choosing my work carefully. It’s not about playing an empowered woman all the time. The reason I did Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors was to explore the other side of the spectrum, where she was a victim. That said, I want viewers to take something back with them, through my subjects. I could play a victim, and yet the subject of the series will stay with people. As artistes, we are always in a position to choose. As an actor, I want to leave people with a fresh perspective.”
