Kriti Sanon is gearing up for her upcoming Bollywood film with Akshay Kumar

Kriti Sanon is looking forward to her upcoming Bollywood film with Akshay Kumar. In this project, she plays a dance teacher.

“We’re in the preparation stage and shooting starts in January,” says the actress, adding, “I’ll have a few action sequences with him and am currently getting into shape for that. I’m training in kickboxing and martial arts… it’s so exciting. I feel that learning some form of self-defence is vital for women; it makes you confident.”

The actress is also learning Western dance. “I can’t reveal more about it now,” says the Heropanti actress, who has trained in Kathak during her childhood. “But it will be different from the regular dances you see in Bollywood.” An electronics engineering graduate, Kriti wrote her GMAT entrance test before she entered films.

“I got a good score too…but that was only for my parents! Even while preparing for the exams, I knew that I wanted to act in films. I didn’t want to end up sitting at a desk and cribbing that I didn’t follow my dreams,” she says. Kriti has already done a Telugu film and is working on her next now.

Is she interested in Kollywood? “If I get a really good script with an interesting role, why not? The Tamil industry is one of the biggest in the country. As for me, it’s more about role and script; language really doesn’t matter. Ultimately, you’re telling a story.”
