Career

The film received mixed reviews from critics. A reviewer for The Times of India wrote that Sanon "looks pretty" and "acts well". while a reviewer for Sify.com stated that she "looks gorgeous" and considered her performance to be "okay" for a newcomer. Later that year, Sanon entered Hindi cinema through Sabbir Khan's action romance Heropanti, also featuring debutante Tiger Shroff. Despite a mixed reception, it emerged as a commercial success. Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama wrote that she "looks gorgeous and handles her part with certainty and confidence" and that she "has the trappings of a star", whereas Rajeev Masand said she "looks lovely and makes an impression despite her harebrained role". Conversely, Srijana Das of The Times of India criticised her emoting, calling it "more cheesy than sharp." Sanon won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut.Sanon's second Telugu film was Sudheer Varma's crime film Dohchay, co-starring Naga Chaitanya. She then signed Rohit Shetty's action comedy Dilwale alongside Varun Dhawan, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, which received mixed reviews from critics though it emerged as one of the highest-grossing Indian films of all time, grossing more than ₹3.72 billion (US$52 million) worldwide. Anupama Chopra disliked the film and wrote that Sanon and Dhawan "work as bait, meant to bring in the critical youth segment". In 2017, Sanon's first appearance was in Dinesh Vijan's directorial debut Raabta, in which she and Sushant Singh Rajput portrayed star-crossed lovers who are reincarnated. In a scathing review, Sukanya Verma of Rediff.com labelled the film "embarrassingly daft" but took note of Sanon's "statuesque, spirited presence". It was not financially successful. Her next release, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's romantic comedy Bareilly Ki Barfi, was better received, and also featured Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao; she played a headstrong woman in rural India who aspires to a better life. Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV noted that "the burden of making Bareilly Ki Barfi work rests upon Kriti Sanon and she doesn't put a foot wrong", but Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express thought that despite Sanon's effort, her performance lacked naturalism. It earned over ₹548 million (US$7.7 million) against its ₹200 million (US$2.8 million) budget. In 2019, Sanon starred opposite Kartik Aaryan in cinematographer Laxman Utekar's Hindi directorial debut Luka Chuppi, a romantic comedy about a couple in a live-in relationship. Devesh Sharma of Filmfare wrote, "Sanon is spontaneous throughout and seems to be finding her feet in comedy, having a gala time of it all in the process." Successful commercially, Luka Chuppi accumulated ₹1.29 billion (US$18 million) worldwide. Her next two films of the year were the comedies Arjun Patiala and Housefull 4. The latter emerged as a major commercial success despite unfavourable reviews. For her final appearance that year, she portrayed Parvatibai opposite Arjun Kapoor's Sadashivrao Bhau in Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama Panipat, based on the Third Battle of Panipat. It ended up as a box-office bomb. That year, Sanon appeared in Forbes India's Celebrity 100 list, ranking 38th with an estimated annual income of ₹80.9 million (US$1.1 million).Sanon has finished work on Utekar's drama Mimi, featuring her as a surrogate mother, and Abhishek Jain's Hum Do Hamare Do opposite Rajkummar Rao, both produced by Vijan.
