Actress Kirti Kulhari, who will be seen as one of the four unabashed protagonists in upcoming series Four More Shots Please!, says it is a good time to be in Indian cinema.

Kirti, who played a memorable lead in the game-changing women’s movie Pink, says she is overwhelmed by the love that is coming her way. “I am receiving as much love for Four Shots More Please! as I got for Pink, if not more. It’s heart-warming. This year I’ve four to five things in my kitty... All different and interesting stuff. This is a good time to be an actor in Indian cinema,” Kirti said.

She added, “There is so much happening in so many formats and platforms. Things are slow but surely the work that excites me and people who like watching me, are coming my way. I just want to do what I know and want to keep learning and growing.”

The 33-year-old actress is happy with her cameo in the latest release Uri: The Surgical Strike, although many felt her role was too brief. She defends her abbreviated appearance in the film and said “I had a guest appearance. But even people who were not doing special appearances, apart from the male lead Vicky Kaushal, everyone had a very limited and small role .”

Audiences noticed a romantic vibe between Kirti and actor Vicky Kaushal’s character in Uri: The Surgical Strike.

To which, Kirti said, “Well, I always felt it. But we never worked on it. This romantic vibe was there on paper so I guess it has kind of come across on screen. I don’t know if it’s necessarily romantic but there is a connect which is quite visible.

“I really feel me and Vicky should do a film together. We would be good together, both of us being the same kind of actors.”
