Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari talked about how she got the Bitti out in Kriti Sanon, “I told her one thing, just be yourself, and just be as you are at home. How you stay, how you live, how you eat, the little things.” She further added how she got Bitti to be a simple girl, ” We hardly made her hair. We told her if you have to go out and you just have to tie a pony tail, how would you do it. She showed how I said that’s exactly what you need to do in the film as well.”
Talking about the character, Kriti Sanon further added, “The only problem in Bitti’s life is, she isn’t getting married. That’s not her problem, that’s her mother’s problem. She (Bitti) doesn’t want to just get married to anybody. She wants that one person who loves her the way she is.”
Revealing what exactly ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ is, the book, as well as the character, the actress, said, ” While she’s reading that book, that author is talking about a girl who is exactly like her. But he’s talking in a very good manner, in a very positive manner so she feels there’s at least somebody who feels that how ever she is, she is good and that’s how the chase starts and the story unfolds.”
