Actor Kiara Advani defined her ‘complicated’ household historical past to Ashish Chachlani and Janice Sequiera on the present Social Media Star. Kiara is expounded to veteran actors Saaed Jaffrey and Ashok Kumar. However, the connection just isn’t completely easy.
Kiara mentioned, “Basically, my grandfather got married and my nani–who he got remarried to, is the daughter of Ashok Kumar. So by marriage, I am related to Ashok Kumar. My grandfather’s brother is Saeed Jaffrey. But the sad part is, I have never met either of them. I got to know more about them, once I started telling my parents that I wanted to get into films.”
Kiara revealed that she by no means heard any movie trade tales when she was rising up. “My parents are childhood friends with a couple of actors, I had never even met… except for Juhi aunty (Juhi Chawla), who is my father’s childhood friend.” At this level, Janice mentioned, “You just called her Juhi aunty!” Kiara responded, “I don’t think she will kill me. She was the only person I met. She is very grounded. I never felt that she was a huge film star, and she was just like my parent’s friends. We would meet at birthday parties. I would be dancing and choreographing dances with her kids. I was one of those kids. All of them would be my backup dancers. That would be the extent of the filminess.”
During the course of the dialog, Kiara requested Ashish what would he do if Zoya Akhtar supplied him a job much like Ranveer Singh, and she or he, a job like Priyanka Chopra. “It’s such a big dream for me.” Ashish responded, “For that, we have to do a Bajirao Mastani.” Kiara began laughing and mentioned, “Kam bol, comments mein gaali padegi!”
Kiara Advani was final seen in Shershaah with Sidharth Malhotra, which emerged as one of many huge successes in 2021. She would subsequent be seen in Jug Jugg Jeeyo with Varun Dhawan.
