From Lust Stories to Satyaprem Ki Katha: Kiara Advani’s Film Journey of Empowering Women


MUMBAI: Kiara Advani has carved a niche for herself in the Indian film industry, not just for her captivating screen presence but also for her willingness to defy stereotypes and challenge societal expectations with the roles she chooses. She recently made India proud by attending the prestigious Red Sea International Film Festival's (RSIFF) Women in Cinema Gala Dinner, hosted by Vanity Fair at Cannes. On the second day of her trip, she was at the Variety panel with her fellow honorees, sharing insights on the growing landscape for women in cinema. Let's explore how her recent films, including the one discussed at the Women in Cinema Panel, "Satyaprem Ki Katha," redefine female characters on screen.

Lust Stories (2018): This anthology film features four short stories, and Kiara shines in Karan Johar's segment. She portrays Megha, a young wife trapped in a sexually unfulfilling marriage. Megha's journey of self-discovery and exploration of her sexuality is a bold and honest portrayal of a woman taking charge of her desires.

Guilty (2020): This courtroom drama highlights the complexities of consent and the burden of proof. Kiara portrays Nanki, a songwriter caught in the middle of a sexual assault case on campus. The film showcases the emotional turmoil and societal pressures Nanki faces, sparking conversations about victim-blaming and the importance of believing survivors.

JugJugg Jeeyo (2022): This family comedy tackles the often-stigmatized topic of infidelity and second marriages. Kiara plays Nainaa, a young woman stuck in a loveless marriage, navigating the complexities of relationships and societal expectations. Nainaa isn't afraid to voice her desires and navigate the challenges of seeking a divorce. The film celebrates female agency as both Nainaa and her mother-in-law, Geeta, played by Neetu Kapoor, make choices that prioritize their own happiness.

Satyaprem Ki Katha (2023): This romantic drama delves into the challenges of a troubled marriage. Kiara portrays Katha, a woman struggling with emotional neglect and seeking fulfillment. The film is a love story that showcases Katha's strength and resilience in tackling the sensitive issue of sexual abuse, ultimately making a decision that prioritizes her well-being.

These films showcase Kiara Advani's ability to portray characters who are far from perfect. They are flawed, complex women who make their own choices, challenge the status quo, and ultimately find their own paths to empowerment. Her characters are relatable and strong, making her a true role model for young women who want to see themselves reflected on screen.
