Kangana Ranaut's movie 'Dhaakad' and Kiara Advani’s ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ were released on May 20 and both actors maintained there was competition but no enmity. Recently Kiara advocated actresses standing up for each other or being friends in the film industry.
Kiara has said, “Whenever I watch the film of a contemporary, and if I really like it, I’ll get her number to tell her how good she was, even if I do not know her. That’s happened with me as well, when other actresses have reached out to me, even those I do not know, to tell me how much they enjoyed my work. It is so motivating to receive this kind of support. All of us inspire each other. When I watch someone performing incredibly, it only makes me want to up my game...to do better, take risks, try new genres.”
The actor added that it is important for women to support each other in professional environments. She said, “There is nothing better than women supporting women. It uplifts one’s morale. We understand each other because we go through or have gone through similar experiences. And if we don’t root for each other, who will?”
Kiara is set to be seen in 'Jugjugg Jeeyo' next. The comedy also stars Varun Dhawan, Anil Kapoor, and Neetu Kapoor. Directed by Raj Mehta, the film releases in theatres on June 24.
