    Kirti Kulhari On Being Homosexual in Human

    Kirti Kulhari, is super impressed with her being part of  Human web series, it is like being part of a “deep” substance and a “well-written storyline.” “I believe that the subject of a human drug trial has never been done before.

    ” It’s a world I didn’t know much about before I joined the crew. “I was like, ‘Oh, I didn’t know about this, and people out there should know about this,'” the actor adds of her Disney Hotstar show, in which Shefali Shah also appears.

    Kirti Kulhari and Shefali Shah play doctors in their new Disney+ Hotstar show Human. They also share a kiss in the show. Talking about it, Kirti has said in an interview with Hindustan Times that it was strange for her to think of trying to create that chemistry with a woman.

    Talking about it, Kirti Kulhari said, “There are times our (Shefali and Kirti’s) hands touch (in the show), and we also have a kissing scene. I mean, of course, I am an actor, of course, I am up for it; but it is still strange for me. I have never done this before. It is still strange for me to create that chemistry for a woman, to really give the expressions I would, falling for a guy. It is different.”

    Human is medical thriller, wherein Kirti the role of Dr Saira Sabharwal, a sophisticated character with some deep dark secrets. It is a character that Kirti had fun playing as “it was a complicated role and there was so much to do as an actor here” but the show did take its toll on her.

    Describing the most fascinating aspect of Dr Saira, she said, “My character is well-layered. She is crazy in a way as most of us are. As much clear she is on her professional front, she is as flustered on the personal front. All these aspects put together makes her an interesting character.”

    She added, “I did go from one point to another. I knew no preparation could prepare me for it, it is in that moment. I had to wire myself in a way to go beyond the idea of genders and that is when I realised it is not about whether it is a man or a woman in front of me but about the feeling, it is about what I am feeling for the person.”

    Talking about shooting the kissing scene in Human, the actor said, “I think the most nervous person for the kissing scene was my director Mozez Singh. I was only (thinking) ‘what if I kiss her and feel something, what if I get turned on?’ That will be something, I will then have to sit back and think if I am also looking at women.

    That is the only thing I had she says. We did not rehearse. My director made us do some 8-10 takes for getting different angles of the kiss. We did it the first time, and we were like ‘ok,’ I was relieved thinking ‘thank God koi feeling nahi aya (there was no feeling)’. Then Mozez came back and asked us to give more takes.”

    “After the first couple of takes, we went at it like robots Kirti noted. That is what it is, sex on screen, or kissing on screen. People wonder about it but it is the most boring thing. You have 100 people around and there is no privacy. You are at the mercy of your director saying ‘action-cut, action-cut.’ You do not have the time for feeling, trust me.” Kirti also said that Shefali told her after the scene, “I lost my onscreen virginity to you, I have never kissed onscreen.”

    Human, which digs deep into the world of pharmaceuticals and drug testing on humans, is releasing at a time when the world is grappling with a pandemic. So, is it the right time to present such a thriller? Kirti thinks there’s no right time for the truth to come out.

    Kirti made her big-screen debut in 2010 with Khichdi: The Movie, a film adaptation of the popular television show. She was also a part of Bejoy Nambiar’s dystopian drama Shaitaan (2011), but it is her role as Falak in Pink that got her much-deserved attention.

    But just when her career was flourishing, Covid-19 brought the entertainment industry to a halt. Though she is still grateful to the OTT platforms that her work is reaching its right audience through them, she agrees, “there is nothing more experiential than watching something on the big screen and watching yourself on the big screen is another level of high. That experience is incomparable.”
