Notably, Kiara was named Alia at birth. However, she changed her name to Kiara when she started working in the film industry in 2014 as actor Alia Bhatt with the same name had already established herself. The actor didn't want to use the name Alia and cause confusion in the industry.

Kiara revealed in an interview that the Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra film Anjana Anjani was the source of inspiration for her name.

Kiara Advani made her Bollywood debut with Ashvini Yardi-produced comedy Fugly. After that, she appeared in a number of popular movies, including the sports biography M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, but it was her part as Preeti in Kabir Singh that brought her fame. Kiara Advani will next appear in Satyaprem Ki Katha and Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat.
