In a chat with Zoom, Kriti said that both of them (she and Alia) winning the National Award together was sort of an answer to everything.
She further added that if you’re given good opportunities, no matter where you come from, if you have the talent, you’re going to make it. So, it’s all about getting the opportunities and great opportunities like Mimi andGangubai don’t come every day.

Earlier, when quizzed about the same on the show, Karan asked Kriti if Alia inspires her to do better. She said, “Of course, it drives me, it inspires me to do better. When you see great work, you also feel that ‘I would love to have an opportunity like that. When Mimi as an opportunity came to me, it gave me the confidence to put in so much.”
Earlier, speaking about her National Award win, Kriti had told Bombay Times, “This award is the highest form of validation that any actor can receive in this country. It is something that all actors dream of. You don’t think of getting a National Award because you don’t get it easily. It’s a big one. I had not even received any best actress award before Mimi. So I thought a National Award is far away, but I still wrote it in my diary in 2020. To receive it within a decade of being in this industry is a huge deal. The kind of pride that I saw in my parents’ eyes when the award was announced, how overwhelmed they were, was special. When I told my father about it, he jumped up and hugged me. He had tears in his eyes, which is extremely rare for him. It took my mother a few seconds to believe it was true. She thought somebody was playing a prank on me. She rushed back from the salon, where she was, and hugged me. It was such a sweet moment.”
