Sharing a still of Kiara from the garba song Sun Sajni on his Instagram Stories, Sidharth wrote, “A love story with a relevant social message, filled with great performances from the entire cast but Katha you have my Heart. @kiaraaliaadvani so happy that you chose to play this character. Such an impactful and nuanced performance. Kudos to you and the entire team @kartikaaryan @nadiadwalagrandson #SatyaPremKiKatha.”
Kiara reacted to his post on her Instagram Stories and wrote, “Thank you my love” with several hearts, kiss and emotional face emojis.
Sidharth had emerged as a cheerleader for Kiara a day before as they arrived at the film screening in matching white outfits and held hands. Kiara wore an anarkali suit while Sidharth was in a white t-shirt paired with a white shirt and white denims.
The Hindustan Times review of Satyaprem Ki Katha also had a mention of Kiara’s performance. It read: “Kiara is a show-stealer by all means. After Jugjugg Jeeyo, she once again gets to showcase a variety of emotions and layers in her character. From a strong-headed girl who dreams big to someone who breaks down so easily, she emotes so well onscreen and looks stunning in each frame.”
Satyaprem Ki Katha released on the Eid-al-Adha holiday on Thursday amid positive reviews. It collected around ₹9 crore. Supriya Pathak Kapur, Gajraj Rao, Siddharth Randheria, Anooradha Patel, Rajpal Yadav, Nirrmite Saawaant and Shikha Talsania also play pivotal roles in the film. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by Sameer Vidwans, it reunites Kartik and Kiara after their 2022 hit Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2.
Kiara will next be seen in director Shankar’s next, Game Changer, opposite Ram Charan. The official release date of the film is still awaited. Sidharth has his debut web series Indian Police Force and a film titled Yodha in pipeline.
