New Delhi: They are yet to begin shooting for filmmaker Dinesh Vijan's next, but actress Kriti Sanon already feels her chemistry with Sushant Singh Rajput is special.
The duo will be seen sharing screen space in the yet-untitled project for the first time. The "Dilwale" actress said after enacting a scene from the upcoming film with Sushant, she felt they had an instant spark.

"Dinesh asked us to do a scene from the movie. We were sitting on the sofa and did it impromptu. There was something special, something you can't describe in words. There was a connect, a spark, some chemistry between me and Sushant even though that was the first time we met."
"So, that kind of thing coming out in the first meeting was very different and unique for all of us. The film has a beautiful script. It is something which we three are very passionate about and there is some great energy between three of us," Kriti told PTI.
Without divulging details about the film, the 25-year-old actress said it will present a different side of her to the audience. "It is about love, dreams, destiny... I feel it will show a different side of me to the audience. It is different from what I have already done. I will be starting Feb end-March beginning. Sushant would be done with 'Dhoni...' by then."
"After that we will go into a little prep and then begin shooting. I remember the first time I met Dinesh a few months ago, it was for something else and while talking, he narrated me this script. Sushant was already involved with it. I went back home and it stayed with me for days and after some time I met Dinesh and told him that I would love to do the film."
She is just two-film-old and though aware of the competition around, Kriti is in no hurry to sign films. "I consider everyone a competition. I don't keep a tab on their work but there is a good, healthy competition. Whether it is Alia, Shraddha or Parineeti everyone is doing so well. They have done so many films. Technically, I am the newest of all. Everyone is being picky and choosy," she said.
While Kriti comes from a non-film background, many of her contemporaries are star kids, who enjoy backing from the industry. The actress, however, thinks the filmy association helps an actor only for the initial part of the career and beyond that it is one's hardwork that does the talking.
"When you belong to a filmy family, you can get an advantage in the first few opportunities. I totally believe that beyond a certain number of films, it is only your talent that can take you ahead. I don't think just belonging to a film background; you can survive in the industry. I have gotten used to the place now..."
