Actress Kirti Kulhari talked out about getting dropped from a South film while she was at the lowest point in her life a few years ago. When she was abruptly replaced, she stated she felt like it was the end of the world. With Khichdi: The Movie, Kirti Kulhari made her Bollywood debut in 2010. Shaitan, Pink, Mission Mangal, and Uri: The Surgical Strike are among her credits.
“There was one occasion that I specifically recall where I was just losing everything,” Kirti told RJ Siddharth Kannan. It was around the year 2009. I had landed a role in a south Indian film, and it just so happened that I was going through the worst period of my life. I was depressed at the time. When that happened and I got this film, I went for a walk.
“I had to be replaced. I didn’t realise it at the time. I’m not sure if I looked like s**t, but I was clearly out of my environment, as evidenced by the fact that people could see it. Overnight, I was replaced. That, combined with what I was going through personally, really shook me up… It made me feel as if it was the end of the world at first. Like, there’s no way out of this, so I’m going to stay here, and this is what my life is going to be. It was that scary,” she mentioned.
Kirti stated that she began to see light after her mental health began to improve. She went on to say that the encounter led her down a path of self-discovery and spirituality. In the meantime, Kirti has been in two OTT films this year: The Girl on the Train, which was released on Netflix, and Shaadisthan, which was released on Disney+ Hotstar.
