Kriti Sannon: Kathak - The svelte figured actress is making waves with her choices of films she is doing in Bollywood. She is touted to be one of the toughest competitions to many other actresses of her age. Her latest film Bareilly Ki Barfi showed her in a very different avatar which the audience loved it. In the film she was seen breaking into break dance which looked very cute, but not many are aware she is a trained Kathak dancer. So far the audience has seen her performing to Bollywood dance numbers in the film, but it would be delight to see her in a dance form that excels.
