Kiara Advani recalls David Beckham’s words as Karan Johar calls her ‘lucky mascot’

On Koffee with Karan season 8, Karan Johar talked about Kiara Advani’s back-to-back successful films, and called her a ‘hit machine’. He lauded her for coming a long way in her acting journey. He talked about her being called a 'lucky mascot' for the mainstream. This is when Kiara shared what David Beckham told her, and how it resonated with her.

She said, "It feels great that the films have done so well. But I must share this. Because you said lucky.” She then recalled what David Beckham told her while he was seated next to her at the India vs New Zealand World Cup 2023 semi-final match. Kiara said that someone around them was talking about how team India was on a lucky streak with the way they were playing. However, David Beckham didn't agree and had a differing opinion. 


"He (David Beckham) said to me, ‘It's not luck. It's someone's hard work.' And, it hit me. I really resonated with that. Because it's never just a fluke. It's never just like a stroke of luck. It is always a team, in our case, of course. And many people's hard work. It's talent, skill, hard work. If you don't have that, no matter if the stars are in your favour, not everyone hits it out,” said Kiara Advani.
