Actor Kirti Kulhari , who will be seen next in Shaadistan , says she wants to play more dark characters

Kirti kulhari has established a name for herself through acting in films such as Pink, Uri: The Surgical Strike, and Girl On The Train, as well as the online series Four More Shots Please!

From playing a lawyer who is also a single mother in Four More Shots Please! to a survivor of abuse in Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors, actor Kirti Kulhari says she wants to explore different levels of complexity through her on-screen characters.

The 36-year-old actor, on the other hand, is not opposed to playing a “white role” if it is well-written.

“I want to play as complex characters as possible. I want to play dark, grey characters. I am bored of playing white characters. But if a script comes up where a white character is written with a lot of depth and layers, I would like to play that (too),” Kulhari told PTI in a Zoom interview.

“Every (role) I played is not simple to play. Human beings are not simple and to tap into so many aspects is not easy,” she added.

The star is excited for the debut of her new film, Shaadistan. Kulhari plays Sasha, a singer in the film who she describes as “a tigress when it comes to taking care of her life.”

Shaadistan, directed by Raj Singh Chaudhary, follows four young free-spirited musicians, a small-town couple, and their little daughter as they travel from Mumbai to a small town in Rajasthan in a camper van.

“To me, Sasha represents freedom, which is misunderstood by people in terms of freedom to do this or to do sex or whatever. When you say freedom, it means choosing your own life and how you want to live your life and who you want to be. Sasha doesn’t seek validation for anything in her life.”

The actor, who will play a doctor in the upcoming web series Human, expressed her desire to continue reinventing herself.

“I don’t care what image I make but I want to tell a story or play a character that will touch you and make a difference. As an actor, I am given an opportunity to make a difference in the world I live in and this is my way of doing it,” she continued.

From Friday, Shaadistan will be available on Disney Hotstar VIP.
