Mumbai: Designer-turned-actress Kriti Malhotra, who makes her debut opposite Aamir Khan in `Dhobi Ghat`, was first reluctant to be part of the Kiran Rao-directed film as she was unsure of her acting skills. "I have been doing costume designing for films for three-and-half years. One day I got a call from a friend asking me to come for screen test for Kiran Rao`s film as they were looking for new faces, basically a non-actor. I completely dismissed it as I never thought of acting," she told reporters. Besides Aamir, `Dhobi Ghat`, Kiran`s directorial debut which is scheduled for release on January 21, stars Prateik Babbar, Monica Dogra and Kriti in pivotal roles.
