Moreover, she mentioned that ‘certain people’ being a brand themselves, do not think of giving their clothes to anybody, but to exactly established personalities. In her words:
“At the end of the day, this is a business. I do feel that certain people who’ve reached great heights in their fields, they don’t have to live up to this social norm… So, there’s this thing like, Let’s be exclusive as a brand, let’s not give everyone, because even as actors, you don’t want to wear what everybody is wearing. Now it’s become international stuff, all that nonsense goes on.”

Further, she applauded ace fashion designer, Manish Malhotra for not treating her like other people. Kiara stated:
“At that point, there was this thing, and Manish is one of those people who never looked at it like that. He never looked at it like, ‘I’ll give somebody something because they’re successful’. Even Karan. I know he gets so much hate for nepotism and all of that, but he took me when I was a nobody, and nobody told him to.”
Kiara went on to an acting agency that had spoken for her at that time but did not help her to be cast in Karan Johar’s movie. Although she had chanced with Karan at a party, the next day, she had got a call from the director for the short film, Lust Stories. She said: “These are people who are supremely successful, but they didn’t have that apprehension, they didn’t come to me only because I was successful.”
