In one of the sections, the actress was asked about her dating life, and without batting an eyelid, Kiara shared some interesting details. When Neha quizzed her about the same, she had a befitting reply! “So, I really like the status that says, ‘I am single till I’m married’. So, I’m not married, that’s why I’m single.”
Kiara Advani further added, “I’m just trying to think how much I’ve dated before I was famous and compare the two. You know what, it’s only that you end up meeting people in your line of work much more than you would meet people otherwise. I mean, if I was dating or getting married to an actor, I don’t think the profession would matter so much.”On the professional front, Kiara will be next seen in Laxmmi Bomb and Indoo Ki Jawani. Helmed by Bengali filmmaker Abir Sengupta, the female-centric film is touted to be a modern age love story based on the current trend of dating through online applications. The film will depict the story of Indoo Gupta, a feisty girl from Ghaziabad, whose left swipes and right swipes with dating app results in hilarious chaos.
Indoo Ki Jawani is being bankrolled by Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani with Nikkhil Advani and co-produced by Niranjan Iyengar and Ryan Stephen. On the other hand, Laxmmi Bomb has Akshay Kumar as the protagonist. The film revolves around the life of a man who is possessed by not one or two but as many as three spirits. What will be interesting to see is how much of the narrative has been tweaked by the makers.
Apart from this horror-comedy, Kumar is also gearing up for films like Sooryavanshi, Prithviraj, Bachchan Pandey, Atrangi Re, Bell Bottom, and Raksha Bandhan. Advani will give her fans films like Indoo Ki Jawani, Shershaah, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, and a film with Anil Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, and Varun Dhawan.
‘Laxmmi Bomb is super, super, entertaining’
‘As fun and funny as it is shooting, it’s as scary when you watch it.’
Kiara Advani went through her share of struggle before she landed the biggest hit in her career so far, Kabir Singh.
“I would go for auditions, things would not work out. I would push my managers to get me certain meetings, they would not work out. It was what some of us call the struggle side of it, but it’s all a part of the journey,” Kiara reveals to Neha Dhupia on the chat show, No Filter with Neha.
On being blessed with a healthy metabolism and her weird food combinations
I am blessed with putting on and losing (weight) equally fast.
So I know I can go back to my old weight.
My dinner is still bhindi, kaddu and salmon.
It’s not like I do it to be fit, I genuinely like it.
I love home food. I love sabzi.
From all the proteins, my favourite is fish.
I think it’s a very odd mix; I don’t think anybody eats bhindi with salmon, even my mum is like what is this meal you’re eating.
On hunger management
My only vice in life is this that I have this thing where if I have planned to eat at a particular time, or if I want to eat a particular thing -- and it’s very simple things -- if I can’t get it, something else happens.
My dad always tells me, please carry a box of nuts or something because you need to keep munching on something because it’s probably because your BP drops and you don’t know who you become but we don’t like this version.
My mom is like, your true colours comes out when you haven’t eaten and she’s like a person will know your colours if you show them only when you haven’t eaten.
On her biggest phobia
I have a major bird phobia.
