While speaking to radio host Siddharth Kannan about her beginning days in the film industry, she said, “For me, it was right after my first film. The film didn’t work and from there, I was like, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do with my life, I don’t know if I’ll get a second chance, another opportunity.’ Of course, I was much younger and I felt that it’s not going to happen. I just started feeling very low. I didn’t want to go out, I didn’t want to meet people and all of that.”
Later in the interview, the actress also told how she never let her first film’s failure affect her career. “But then, I just felt like, the one thing I have confidence in is that I can act and no matter what happens, I was like, ‘This is what I want to do.’ Just because my first film didn’t do well doesn’t mean I stop and don’t try again. So I got myself together. I went back, enrolled in other acting classes, dance classes, whatever to fill my day and prepare myself. I just decided that I am not going to stop, I am going to keep going and believe in myself. That was my moment of courage,” said, Kiara Advani.
Currently, the actress is preparing for her upcoming movie, Shershaah, a true story of the Kargil war hero Captain Vikram Batra.
