The actress will soon be seen in the medical thriller Human
Disney+ Hotstar’s upcoming Hotstar Specials Human has been creating quite a buzz since the trailer of the series dropped. A medical thriller based on human drug trials in India, the series boasts of a stellar cast headlined by National award-winning actor Shefali Shah and the versatile actor Kirti Kulhari along with Vishal Jethwa, Ram Kapoor, Seema Biswas, Aditya Srivastava and Mohan Agashe, amongst others.
Kirti Kulhari plays the role of a doctor in this thriller. When asked about her choice of projects and her inclination towards drama, she shares, “There is so much more drama in drama as a genre, the characters are more complex and layered. I personally feel I like playing with complexity as a person hence portraying them on screen as well. It is a very challenging process as an actor and I truly enjoy that challenge. Also, I am an actor who likes to talk about different subjects when I touch a script. There is so much to talk about. It involves people, the drama has to be there. It’s just something I love to do. It’s far tougher to get a good script in terms of comedy and others as compared to drama. I happen to be doing well with drama, and if it’s categorized as serious stuff, sure, I would like to take every opportunity as an actor to take things that matter to me. ”
Human unravels unexpected secrets of the world of medicines and its effect on people with a gripping tale of murder, mystery, lust, and manupilation. Directed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah and Mozez Singh, the Disney+ Hotstar Specials series has been penned by Mozez Singh, and Ishani Banerjee.
