From featuring in supporting roles to playing the lead in her next, ‘Indu Sarkar’, Kirti Kulhari has come a long way and the actor says she is confident of carrying a film on her shoulders.

Kirti, who has appeared in multi-starrer films like ‘Shaitan’, ‘Jal’ and ‘Pink’ among others, is excited about her first film as a lead, directed by Madhur Bhandarkar.

“I have always been very confident about myself as an actor. To carry a film on your shoulder, you either have to be a star or a very good actor. I was confident about myself but post ‘Pink’, people felt I could carry a film on my shoulder... it was a huge responsibility. When I started ‘Indu Sarkar’, I was more than confident of doing the film,” Kirti said.

Kirti received rave reviews for her incredible performance in the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer, which released last year. Post one of the screenings of ‘Pink’, which recently bagged a National Award, Bhandarkar offered her ‘Indu Sarkar’ and she accepted the offer immediately.

“‘Indu Sarkar’ is set in the time of Emergency, I love period dramas and I love this space and the other reason for me to say yes to the film was that it is a title role,” she adds.
