Kiara Advani, lead of Kabir Singh with Shahid Kapoor has just arrived at the silver screen, is now up for another launch. She will play the female lead in ‘Guilty’ produced by Karan Johar and directed by Ruchi Narain. And it will be released digitally later this year.
Much before Kiara landed a role in Kabir Singh, she made her B-town debut with Karan Johar’s short film: Lust Stories from where she never looked back. Kiara considers Karan as her mentor and during an interaction with India Today, she shared,
“He cast me after Machine. He saw me before anybody else did for which I will always be grateful. I look to him as a mentor. I seek his advice on the littlest of things whether it is film scripts or clothes. He’s so helpful and so approachable. I know he has my best interests at heart. I feel fortunate that I have him as part of my life. There’s so much to learn from him.”
Coming back to her upcoming Guilty, it will be produced by Karan Johar’s Dharmatic, Dharma Productions’ Digital Content Arm. Talking about its plot, Guilty explores the different versions of truth that emerge when a small-town girl accuses the college heartthrob of rape. Seen through the eyes of his musician girlfriend, this story makes us question who is truly “guilty” in such circumstances.
Karan too is elated by his upcoming project with Kiara and took to his Instagram page and shared her first looks from the Digital Movie. In the shared photo, Kiara can be seen in a never-seen-before avatar, donning grey hair streaks and giving an intense look.
He captioned the pic with a heartfelt note. Below have a look at the pic for yourself:
