Six Kirti Kulhari Performances That Enraptured Us
The Mumbai girl, Kirti Kulhari has been winning our hearts with her excellent choice of characters and the bold portrayals on-screen. Theatre and TV commercials marked the beginning of her career and she has now made her place in the entertainment industry. Kulhari’s character Anjana in Amazon Prime Original, Four More Shots Please! won the hearts of the millennials with her feisty role. Now, that the show is back with another season, the audiences can’t wait to watch yet another fearless performance by the actress.
Kulhari was first noticed for her roles in commercials such as ICICI Bank, Everyouth Face Wash, Close-Up, Taj Mahal Tea, Whirpool Refrigerators and she took the viewers by surprise with her back-to-back notable performances in Pink, Uri and Mission Mangal. Be it Bollywood or online streaming services, there’s nothing Kirti hasn’t tried and the best part is, her honest prowess has fetched her success and fandom she deserves.
Here are the most noteworthy performances by Kirti Kulhari that will stay with us forever.
The courtroom drama that emphasized the importance of ‘consent’ in a sexual relationship, showed exemplary acting skills by Kirti as Falak Ali. Although she had done a few films before this, Pink got her recognition like no other. Her acting looked so genuine that the thin line between reality and screen was blurred. She proved that she has the ability to breathe life into a character. The scene where she breaks down in the court gave us goosebumps.
Uri: The Surgical Strike
The movie, an ode to the soldiers on our country’s borders, boasted of yet another stellar performance by Kirti Kulhari as a flight lieutenant, Seerat Kaur. The movie ranks among the highest-grossing Indian films and did portray women playing key roles in the defence forces through the characters of Yami Gautam and Kulhari. Seerat is trying to prove her patriotism to her martyred husband and Kirti sure did justice to the character. From her poise to not-so-loud expressions she beautifully depicted the grief that is hidden in the heart of a woman who lost her husband on the borders.
The story of scientists and how they juggle their personal lives and passion was much appreciated by the viewers. Kulhari’s Neha Siddique received the praise she deserved. As a Muslim girl struggling to even find a house she looked as real as is possible on the screen. The character is wonderfully shown as an ardent woman, devoted to science.
Four More Shots Please!
The spirited and gutsy single mother, Anjana Menon broke the stereotypes and made her mark in the Prime Original series that showed the friendship of four girls struggling in their personal and professional lives. Her unapologetic nature made an impact on the audiences. She garnered claps in every sequence, be it the arrest for a drink and drive or the struggle to move on from a relationship that had ended.
Bard of Blood
Bard of Blood is a Netflix original spy thriller series based on Bilal Siddiqi’s novel of the same name. Here she plays the role of Jannat, a Baluchi girl, entirely different from all that she had done before this. A calm demeanour combined with a beautiful dialogue delivery by Kirti remarkably manifested her as an art enthusiast working for the rights of underprivileged children.
Probably one of the few films that cast Kulhari as the only leading lady, the 2017 film had us all in the fierce poster itself. From the timid woman who wished to be a “good wife” to a fearless lady who fights against the powerful political leaders for the country. Although the movie could not please the critics, her incredible talent is quite visible in the transformation from a meek stuttering individual to a firebrand fighter.
