Kiara Advani found herself moving from one film set to another as soon as the lockdown rules freed post the pandemic. Advani, who was last seen in Indoo Ki Jawani, talks about how her personal and professional life was hampered during the onset of 2020. "It was a very interesting year, unexpected in many ways, but it gave me the time to reflect on things I have been doing so far. When we got to know about the pandemic, we were shooting for Bhool Bhulaiyya 2, and we had to take that decision to continue to work or to wrap up. We came back just before the national lockdown was implemented."
Adding further, Kiara said, "No one knew it would go on for so long. One had not been with their family like this in a very long time. During the first few weeks of the lockdown, I watched a lot of content, attended masterclasses, did some diction and dance courses and some fun shoots with my parents at home. That time spent at home just amplified the gratitude I feel for the simple joys of life. The number one priority was to stay safe. When things opened up, and we all slowly started returning to our sets, I saw how closely the safety rules were being followed. The passion for what you do does not let you stay away from it. I love being on my film’s set and that is what I felt so grateful for when we went back into reboot mode."
Talking about taking risks in her career, Kiara added, "love to take a risk. Some of it pays off and some of it leaves you more educated about your line of work. Either you just learn or you learn and soar. I feel that there is a long way to go before I reach where I want to be. Yes, the tag of being a star brings a certain kind of pressure, but I will always be an actor in my head. I try not to base my decisions on the position that I am at in my career. I am sure that I want to continue being the person I was when I started my career. My instinct and my passion for my work are the same.
