Guilty, a Netflix film produced by Dharmatic, the digital arm of Dharma Productions, is about a songwriter whose boyfriend is accused of rape. Speaking about her role in Guilty, Kiara had told IANS, “I play a character called Nanki in Guilty. She is an extremely layered and complex character. She is constantly wearing a mask. She is very far from who I am as a person. It was very interesting to understand the different shades of this character and get inside the skin of it.”

Speaking further about doing a Netflix film and if the digital platforms provide better opportunities to actors, Kiara had said, “I think today the lines are blurring. I remember after watching Sanju, I liked Vicky’s (Kaushal) character as much as I liked the character of Sanju. The role which you are playing should excite you as an actor. Even the platforms are blurring. A mainstream actor like me is also doing a feature film on a platform like Netflix. I think that’s a great thing. A change is happening.”
Directed by Ruchi Narain, Guilty stars Kiara, Akansha, Gurfateh and Taher Shabbir. The film releases on Netflix on March 6.
