Kiara Advani says the positive response to her performance in Lust Stories has made her more driven.
She made her acting debut with Fugly in 2014 and was later seen in M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story and Machine , but it was her part in filmmaker Karan Johar's story in the Lust Stories anthology that brought her wider visibility.
"I feel more responsible with my choices now. I am more driven than ever and determined to work harder and to deliver. I want to make all those people proud who have put in so much faith in me," Advani said.
Lust Stories comprised four short film segments directed by four directors: Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Johar.
Advani portrayed a dissatisfied wife who gets caught in an awkward situation due to it.
The 26-year-old actress feels topics like women's desire should be spoken about.
"I think cinema is a reflection of the society and whatever is being shown is because of the climate we're living in. It is relevant, topical and surely somewhere it's impacting people who can relate to these circumstances," she said.
Since her acting debut in 2014, Advani has only featured in five films. She said it was a conscious decision to take it slow.
"But that's also because I wasn't being offered every exciting film at that time. Today things are different and so I will work harder to keep that up now," she said.
Advani has now bagged two films -- Akshay Kumar film Good News and Karan Johar's Kalank , featuring Sanjay Dutt.
"I think the most important thing in life is to be happy. If you're happy, it will show in everything that you do. What I've realised is that I'm happiest when I'm at work as I am always preparing myself for when the opportunity arises," the actress said.
"I don't stress about the outcome because I know the only thing I have control over is my own hard work. So long as I'm being honest about that and striving to be the best version of myself, I'm happy."
