However, she said it, in fact, wasn’t easy for her, as she faced the kinds of criticism perhaps unique to her.

“There were some low phases in my life; there were films offered by big banners, but they were not the best debut projects.

“There were days when I was annoyed and irritated. On some days, I used to cry, because there was nothing to keep me busy.” She went on to say she was actually rejected for being too good looking to play an onscreen character: “There were also times when I met a few people who told me that something was not right about me — someone told me, ‘You’re too good-looking. There has to be some sort of imperfection in you to look real on screen.’ I think I did feel low, but at the same time, I did have people who believed in me a lot. That’s what you need. I think that gave me a little more confidence.” said the 27-year-old actress. Also Read - Rhea Chakraborty Has a Message For All, Wears Sweatshirt That Says ‘Man Up’ - Check Pics

The actress who last appeared in Raabta which released earlier in June has been rumoured to be dating her Raabta co-star Sushant Singh Rajput. Neither of them has publicly agreed to these rumours, however, Kriti says negative stories do affect her. “I think I’ve made peace with all these rumours, but I’m also human and anything written about me does affect me. Though I know that the news is not true, being written in a negative way does make me feel bad. But it’s more important to move on from such things and focus on something exciting and positive.”

The actress will next be seen opposite Ayushmaan Khurrana in Bareilly Ki Barfi.
