Following the success of her last release, Bareilly Ki Barfi, it looks like Kriti is in high demand for many movie offers. 

A filmmaker who is keen to work with the actress is Vishal Bhardwaj. Initially, Kriti was to star alongside Nawazuddin Siddique in Bhardwaj's Padeeu but things did not work out then. However, now the director has roped in Kriti for another movie titled Churiya, according to a leading tabloid. Churiya is about sibling rivalry and Kriti will be seen as the younger sister.

A source informed a tabloid, "The film is set in a small town of Rajasthan, where fights between two sisters can get ugly, and physically and verbally abusive. The word, Churiya can have two meanings; here it refers to girls who can be as sharp as knives. Vishal and Kriti have been meeting regularly for the past few weeks. Kriti has also started taking workshops to up her act. She has almost been finalised for the part of the younger sister."

When it comes to the elder sister, Bollywood actresses Sonakshi Sinha and Vaani Kapoor are on the top of the list. The source continued, "Vishal approached many actors, including Parineeti Chopra, Bhumi Pednekar, Sonakshi Sinha and Shraddha Kapoor, for the part of the older sister. He even made them deliver screen tests. He is yet to arrive at a name."

Are you excited to see Kriti in Bhardwaj's Churiya? Let us know in the comments below.

Given Rangoon's debacle at the box office; stepping aside from his Shakespeareque movies, looks like Vishal is heading towards the family relationship route instead!

I could see sona workings out but vaani? unless she's playing an evil sister, iher face is horrible on screen post surgeries

no vaani

Go for Diana & Kriti. Problem with an Anushka or parineeti would be they would get Kriti's role edited or minimized due to their star power, Diana on the other hand is as tall or even taller than kriti has similar build and face structure. Though Diana is not that popular either.

Seriously Vishal Vaani really? Anyways Sonakshi and Vaani don't look like they could look like Kriti's sister from any angle. And Vaani is unwatchable post her surgery. Sorry but truth is truth. Even Rajeev Masand pointed that out in his scathing review of Befikre. Anushka is the best choice as Kriti's older sister and both are tall and look like they could pass off as sisters. It would be interesting to see them together and the dynamics between them and I am sure Vishal will be able to extract amazing performances out of both of them plus his female characters in all his movies have been strong and fleshed out. My sibling rivalry between the two sisters is not over something clichéd like a man or common love interest and their issues and troubles are as real as it gets.

All are really terrible actresses.

He should hire you. You've got bashing behind the back and putting down someone right.
