Nenokkadine girl Kriti Sanon is making her Bollywood debut with upcoming film Heropanti, opposite Tiger Shroff, son of Jackie Shroff. Kriti says she always wanted to make her acting debut with Bollywood, but since a Telugu film with Mahesh Babu came her way. she accepted it. However, she says that experience helped her as an actress.

Kriti signed her Hindi two weeks after she signed Mahesh’s film. She said she would’ve definitely signed Heropanti first had she got it before Nenokkadine. But she has no regrets because whatever she has learnt as actress is on her Telugu film with Mahesh and Sukumar. She credits Sukumar for drawing the actress out of her and proving to the world that she can act as well. Kriti is also thankful to Mahesh for being a supportive co-star and helped her wherever required.

She said she learnt a lot about culture from her experience in Nenokkadine. Because of which, she understood the importance filmmakers give to culture and value in the south.
