Kiara Advani Early life and background

Advani was born to Jagdeep Advani, a Sindhi Hindu businessman and Genevieve Jaffrey, a teacher whose father was a Muslim from Lucknow and whose mother was a Christian of Scottish, Irish, Portuguese, and Spanish ancestry; and had a Bengali godmother. Born as Alia Advani, she changed her first name to Kiara prior to the release of her first film, Fugly, in 2014. She has stated that it was Salman Khan’s suggestion to change her name from Alia to Kiara, as Alia Bhatt was her contemporary.

Kiara Advani Career

Hindi and Telugu career beginnings (2014–2018)

Advani debuted into Bollywood with Kabir Sadanand’s 2014 comedy Fugly, that also had an ensemble cast of Mohit Marwah, Arfi Lamba, Vijender Singh, and Jimmy Sheirgill. Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama said: “Kiara Advani catches you completely unaware” and has the “combination of looks and talent”.

Establishment (2019–present)

Boyapati Srinu’s Telugu action drama Vinaya Vidheya Rama was Advani’s first release of 2019. In a scathing review for The Hindu, Sangeetha Devi Dundoo wrote, “It isn’t Kiara Advani’s fault that she looks lost in the melee.” Advani returned to Hindi cinema with a special appearance in Abhishek Varman’s period drama Kalank. Her next appearance was in Sandeep Vanga’s romantic drama Kabir Singh alongside Shahid Kapoor. An adaptation of Vanga’s 2017 Telugu movie Arjun Reddy, it is about the titular character, played by Kapoor, who goes on a self-destructive path and becomes an alcoholic surgeon after his lover, played by Advani, marries someone else.

Upcoming projects

Dharma Productions’s next production, the 2021 action war film Shershaah, based on the life of army officer Vikram Batra (played by Sidharth Malhotra) and featuring Advani as his fianceé, is fully completed. She has also committed to essay the female lead opposite Kartik Aaryan in Anees Bazmee’s standalone sequel of the 2007 iconic supernatural comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa.
