Kriti Sanon Shares When She Got The Germ Of The Idea Of Turning A Producer

In an exclusive Pinkvilla Masterclass with Himesh Mankad, when Kriti Sanon was asked about when she decided to embark on the journey of becoming a producer, she said, "It was in my head at some point, that I would want to produce. I would also want to back the content that I love. And, I'm also a creative person. I've always been excited about the entire script.;Everything that's happening in the scene and not just my part."

She continued, "When I was shooting for Mimi, I just got so passionate about that script; the whole process of preparation, of discussing with Laxman sir, of adding little nuances, little moments; It was just so close to my heart that I was like whenever I produce something, I have to feel this, what I am feeling. It has to come from my heart. It has to say something. It has to feel warm and something that moves you; And says something to the audiences."



Kriti Sanon Describes How Writer Kanika Dhillon Got On Board, On Do Patti

I was looking for the right time. And I think after Mimi, I was trying to look for something deeper, a layered character for a very long time. And there were none coming across. People were not writing good stuff. I don't know what it was. And I was like I need to do something. And then I met Kanika Dhillon, who's a writer, and also a co-producer of Do Patti. I've always loved her writing. She does some quirky stuff. Her characters are always very layered. And I told her, 'Kanika, I want to start producing. So do you have anything that you are working on?'. She had an idea. She asked me, 'Is there something you feel for?'. I had a subject I felt for and told her. After a month or so, she came back marrying the two; My subject and her idea, which just connected with me immediately."

This is the first film that I have been involved in, from the germ of the idea, turning into a story, turning into a first draft and turning into many drafts, seeing it come on screen, come alive with actors, working on the music with music composers; It has been very satisfying for me. I think it's more for my creative satisfaction as a producer."

Kriti Sanon Believes In Creating Opportunities When She Doesn't Get Them

Talking about how Do Patti came to her at a time when she wasn't getting the kind of scripts that she was looking for, Kriti said, "I've loved the whole process. There's a lot of learning. I like being a newcomer every time. We all can get like, 'Mujhe aata hai (I know)', but I like changing the gear every now and then, becoming a newcomer in some field, learning everything from scratch, whether it is production or being an entrepreneur; These are not things that I planned on day 1. I don't plan. It has to come from within. It has to feel like, 'Abhi kuch aur karte hai (Let's do something different)'. This is that. And sometimes I also feel that sometimes if you don't find opportunities that you really want, you should create one. This is one opportunity that I created."


We can't wait any longer for Do Patti that co-stars Kajol. You can watch the entire conversation featuring Kriti Sanon on Pinkvilla's YouTube channel.
