Mini Biography
Born in Hong Kong on July 16, 1984 Katrina Kaif is one of eight siblings, all girls, from a mother who is a Caucasian of British Nationality, and a father who was formerly from Kashmir, India, but who has since acquired British citizenship. Her mother is now re-settled in Chennai (formerly known as Madras), the Capital of the state of Tamil Nadu in India.
She spent subsequent years in Hawaii, and then in London, Britain, She started modeling accidentally when she was in Hawaii at the tender age of 14, when she was approached for a jewelry campaign. Thereafter she continued modeling in London.
Continuing to model was the reason she got her break in a Bollywood movie ‘Boom’ offered by none other than film-maker Kaizad Gustad.

She was flooded with modeling assignments the minute she set her foot on Indian soil, especially with her innocent expressive face, hour-glass figure, and drop-dead gorgeous looks.
Professionally she started off as a model with photographer Atul Kasbekar, and upon being accepted, she received offers from LG, Cola, Fevicol, Lakme, & Veet. It was the Lakme commercial that got her noticed. She retained Matrix as her Manager to accept work on her behalf and at the price she deserved.
Moving to different culture and country was not much of a culture shock for her, as she states that no matter where you come from, the bottom line is that everyone wants to be loved, respected, and cared for.

Despite of her positive attitude, she had been stereotyped as “Indian” by extreme right-wingers in Britain who made it clear that she did not quite fit-in with their “Blonde” Caucasian culture; while on the other hand in India itself she had been ranked as an ‘outsider’ very much like Sonia Gandhi.
Unlike other artistes from foreign lands, Katrina did not experience any difficulties in getting a visa nor of getting it extended in India.
Although linguistically challenged, Katrina puts on a bold face and states that other Bollywood artistes like Sridevi, who did not know Hindi, did get offers from Bollywood film-makers, and she is no different. She has taken Hindi and dancing lessons to fit in with the Bollywood culture. She likes to display a picture of her learning Kathak dancing where she used to dance 7 hours a day non-stop.

Adorned with soft gorgeous looks, she is not easily intimidated, but admits that she is very emotional, sensitive, and concerned about her privacy, Almost an incurable romantic, she prefers to wear comfortable non-revealing clothes when at home, hates to do her hair, and above all dislikes make-up. Admitting to being lonely in the beginning, but now has several friends who she can hang out with.
Although her first movie ‘Boom’ was panned by the critics and shunned by the audiences, two other Telugu movies ‘Malliswari’ and ‘Pidugu’ did get her noticed. She grossed 70 Lakh Rupees for ‘Malliswari’ – making her top the list of the highest paid actresses during a South Indian movie Debut.

Not done with South Indian movies, she has been signed in a Tamil movie ‘Bheema’ opposite National Award Winner Vikram.
She has received decent reviews for her part in “Maine Pyar Kyon Kiya”, as well as a brief appearance in ‘Sarkar’.
Katrina had made Mumbai her base, didn’t mind singing and dancing around trees and as a result is now one of the biggest mega-stars, perhaps one of the highest paid female-lead actresses in Bollywood, and a crowd-puller whenever she makes an appearance for a live song and dance number.

Personal Quotes
It’s not my style to either wear minimum clothes, to strip or to even be comfortable with a sex-symbol label. I just want to do good work instead of sporting such meaningless tags. Sex sells, but to a small extent, not always. And this is what filmmakers have to accept. The exposure has to be relevant to the film and its characters and not forced for the sake of titillation. On the contrary, some of the greatest Indian films have been devoid of all these sexual trappings. I know my comfort zone in today’s Indian culture and society.
Her thoughts on Bollywood accepting her, being an outsider British girl, into Indian cinema: “I have no complaints. I think I’m especially lucky. As you said, I’ve come from outside and I’m not even anywhere closely connected. But I have absolutely no problem here. People have been more than welcoming, even before I was ready. There was a time when I felt that I need to take time to understand more about the industry, the workings of it. I was doing my modeling, which I really wanted to do at the time. So that’s why even my entry into films was later than people expected.” (Stardust magazine, July 2006)
“I’ve been very blessed, I think, or what do you call it… mmm… lucky to get at this stage what I have. It’s not like I’ve come from acting school and done work at an academy or something. I feel I’ve been given a very huge chance and opportunity.” (Stardust magazine, July 2006)
My Hindi was bad about three years ago. I wanted to achieve a certain status in modeling. Through that I got confidence to get into movies. Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2005) came at the right time. I had done kathak training which apart from teaching you about dancing also teaches you about emotions. After that experience, I feel this year will be a much better year for me.

I think I have been very lucky so far. I have done a lot of ads and also some films down south. People have liked me. I guess I have found a balance.
Wait and watch. Jee Karda should be on air later this month. We shot at 4am every day to capture the light and it was scorching. To keep cool we would stay in shades and sip fruit juice or mint tea.
Egypt is among the most beautiful countries I have visited – the pyramids, the temples and the landscape are absolutely exotic. I even enjoyed the barbecue dinner on a boat on the Nile. We shot in a number of places and I’ve come back with fond memories of my trip.
I unwind myself by taking off the costume and make-up as soon as the shoot is over! And get a spa treatment. It is extremely relaxing. Unfortunately, the kind of lifestyle and schedule we have, we hardly get time. Not only actors, but I have seen a lot of directors and journalists with skin problems and believe me, all that can be cured by a spa treatment.
Salman Khan did not help me get movie offers. What rubbish! Will any producer take a risk of millions of rupees at the instance of any person? Everyone knows that the film industry is highly competitive, and one gets a job on one’s talent only and not on any recommendation.
My relationship with Salman Khan is too personal to talk about. I take my work like any other regular job and what I do in my personal life is no one’s business. I’d rather let my work do all the talking.
Every one has her own love life. Every one has a dream to get a perfect life partner. But this is not so easy in real life. In fact, one doesn’t love, it happens. As far as I am concerned, I love a boy who is linked with the film industry. However, I shall not name him. You never know what may happen in future.

Ali Zafar To Sing World Cup 2011 Song


Pakistani singer cum actor who has now joined the league of Bollywood celebs has finally been declared the official singer to sing the Cricket World Cup 2011 song. The most interesting thing to note is that a few days back, media was busy announcing Atif Aslam, as the singer for the World Cup , a piece of news of which even Aslam was unaware!
We never know if by tomorrow the World Cup Authorities change their mind but till now it is the Pakistani Prince of Pop, Ali Zafar who has been chosen as the official singer for the World Cup. Zafar was rated as one of the 10 Sexiest Asian Men recently, though it was Ranbir Kapoor who topped the list but Zafar was able to leave several Bollywood Stars behind!
Zafar seems really happy to be chosen as the official singer of the World Cup this year. He has to write, compose, and sing the song. Really lots of work!! “Shooting till late. Now Recording trumpet now for the world cup song”, tweeted Zafar.
Even though Ali has lots of work to do, really great amount of work after all, cricket is the biggest event both for Pakistani and Indian audiences, but even then he has not abandoned his fans on Twitter as he is busy tweeting his current schedule, plans, and point of view.
Recently he has been busy tweeting and re-tweeting others tweets related to Veena Malik who has been under constant criticism of Pakistani media and critics after her participation in Bigg Boss- season 4. It appears that Ali has the qualities of a perfect unbiased judge; this is what his tweets and re-tweets related to Veena suggest!
In one of his tweets, he writes, “I won’t give my view but will only reflect your all to others by retweeting so that we are aware of where collective consciousness is headed.”
He even seems to be a little philosophical from his tweets! Or perhaps equalitarian, or liberal revolutionary!! Well, this is what one of his tweets suggest, “They say that women r insecure creatures. I say a man who dictates his woman is more insecure.”
