In an interview with PTI, Kiara believes that male actors get the majority of the laughs and punchlines in comedy. The actor believed that comedies offer more opportunities for actors. She said, “It’s very rare that a female protagonist adds a punch. I am still craving to do that. I’m part of these films, they all have had an interesting arc to the characters. But if I’ve to compare it to what your male protagonist is doing, then you just can’t compare.” She added,  “Unfourtunately, sometimes that’s how (the script) is written. It definitely does disappoint. Maybe now’s when you start speaking up and telling your director that you want more. Maybe now I will start doing that going forward.”
