‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ actress Kriti Sanon makes a strong statement on girls’ smoking habit


Bareilly Ki Barfi actress Kriti Sanon has recently expressed a strong opinion on girls being stereotyped in society. Well, Kriti is essaying the role of a small-town girl who fully enjoys her life. In the film, Kriti breaks her stereotypical cute image and does the bindaas role of Bitty, who is like today’s young generation girls who always love to enjoy their life.

As we have seen in the trailer, Kriti has smoked in the film. However, in an interview with a leading news portal, Kriti became vocal about society’s stereotypical mentality towards girls. She said, “Smoking is not good for health and should be avoided. I am a non-smoker, but the point we want to make is that girls who smoke, who are fond of body art or break into a jig are not characterless. Our society has a very small bracket for `good girls’. That bracket needs to broaden up or change.”

She further added, “When a guy is moophat or smokes, he is not considered characterless, but you judge girls too fast. This is seen more in smaller towns. In an arranged marriage too, only a girl is asked all kinds of questions. I really want this to change.”

Well, it seems like Kriti has become much confident and vocal. Her upcoming ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ also stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao in the leading roles.

Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, the film is slated to release on August 18.
