In Bollywood, often the success of a film gets attributed only to the male leads of the film and the female actors are given less due for their work. This conversation sparked off with a recent release starring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon, Luka Chuppi. In the film, Kartik and Kriti were playing a couple who wanted to live together before getting married. The film surely is one of the hit ones of 2019. However, a debate came in when the success of the film was only attributed to Kartik Aaryan and not Kriti. 

In a recent chat with Bombay Times, Kriti spoke about the same and mentioned that Kartik and she have had this conversation time and again. The Arjun Patiala actress revealed that it was Taapsee Pannu who brought up the issue and later Arjun Kapoor, her Panipat co-star, also joined in. Kriti mentioned that it is a common practice in Bollywood where a romantic film is only associated with a male actor and not with the female. But, she also mentioned that things are changing now.

Kriti said, “The conversation started after a headline stating ‘Mr. Bachchan’s Badla and Kartik Aryan’s Luka Chuppi do well at the box office’, surfaced. Taapsee pointed it out and tweeted that female actors have also worked in these films. Though it happens at times, I think most people are scared nowadays about not mentioning the work of female actors; they fear that we might tweet about it. Once the conversation started, Arjun (Kapoor) and I also tweeted because a similar incident happened when they started talking about the clash of Panipat (which features Kriti and Arjun) and Pati Patni Aur Woh (Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar, Ananya Panday). There are times when actresses are not given as much importance as the actors, even when it comes to mentioning them in the headline. You don’t call a romantic film a girl’s movie. Some people have a tendency to write in detail about the male lead’s performance and just two lines describing the leading lady’s work. That, too, they focus more on how pretty she looked. Now, that’s upsetting.”

Later, the Luka Chuppi actress added that she doesn’t focus on negativity as it spoils the happy moments for her. Kriti mentioned that she always treated Luka Chuppi as her film and will continue to do so. Meanwhile, the actress is all set to be seen in Arjun Patiala with Varun Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh which is a romantic comedy. The music is doing well and the audience loved the trailer. Arjun Patiala is slated to release on July 26, 2019. Kriti will also be seen in Ashutosh Gowariker's Panipat with Arjun Kapoor which is slated to release in December 2019. Other than that, Kriti will also be a part of the multi-starrer film, Housefull 4.
