She began her career as a model, and today is nicknamed the “Golden Girl of Bollywood”. Beauty and hard work have made Katrina one of the highest-paid actresses in Indian cinema.
Katrina Kaif Childhood and adolescence
The actress was born in Hong Kong in the family of Indian Muhammed Kaif & Englishwoman Suzanne Turcott. My father ran his own business, my mother worked as a lawyer, while devoting time to charity. The family is large by today’s standards – Katrina has six sisters and a brother.
When the girl was still a child, her parents decided to separate. Dad left for America and hardly participated in the upbringing of heirs. In an interview, the actress admits that as a child she was often jealous of those peers who have fathers.
Over time, my mother became more and more addicted to social work, and with her children she traveled to different countries, living in Japan and China, France and England, Switzerland, and even Hawaii. And these are only those states where the family stayed longer than a year. In many countries, they stayed for a couple of months. Because of this way of life, the children learned the basics of high school at home.
From an early age, the girl was especially dreamy, she came up with a scattering of incredible stories that she told her sisters and brothers. Her interests included music – she watched musicals with admiration. She loved wonderful fairy tales, transferred to the screen by directors and animators, revised dozens of times “Mary Poppins” and “Beauty and the Beast”.
Katrina Kaif Model
Tall beauty Katrina Kaif began her career with the work of a model. The girl was only 14 years old when she won the Hawaiian beauty contest.
The jewelry company signed a contract with the promising model, and a little later she moved to the British capital and went to conquer the catwalks on a professional level. The girl was invited on a regular basis to demonstrate the work of famous designers at London Fashion Week.
Katrina Kaif Movies
Filmmaker Kaizad Gustad noticed a charming half-breed at one of the fashion shows. The girl received a tempting offer to star in a feature film, which the British launched together with the Indians. Katrina, of course, gladly agreed and went to India, where the filming took place.
In 2003, the erotic film “Boom” was released, where yesterday’s model, and today a novice actress met with the stars of Indian cinema Jackie Shroff and Amitabh Bachchan. However, the debut was not appreciated by critics and viewers.
However, the colorful girl attracted the attention of other directors and decided to stay in India, where she combined acting with modeling – she decorated the advertising campaigns of major global brands. 2005 was a breakthrough for Katrina Kaif in her film career. The girl played in three pictures at once, among them “As I fell in love”, which became a hit. The actress was named “Opening of the Year”, awarded the Max Stardust Award, and invited to Bollywood.
The directors showered the young lady with suggestions. 2007 was a successful year when Katrina shone in four bands. The comedy “Partner” brought unimaginable collections, on the set of which Salman Khan, Govinda, Lara Dutta gathered. In this production, Kaif got the role of the boss, reincarnated in her, the girl filled the film with lightness and freshness. It is noteworthy that “Partner” is a remake of the Hollywood comedy “Rules of Removal: The Hitch Method”, but the Indians’ work surpassed the original.
Katrina Kaif quickly replenished her personal piggy bank with the best roles and pictures. In 2008, the creative baggage adorned the image of the secretary and mistress of two brothers in the film “Race”, where she worked with Saif Ali Khan and Akshay Khanna. After that, she starred in “King Singh”, which was called Katrina’s sixth successful film.
A year later, Kaif transformed into a student Maya – the bride of a terrorist in “New York”.
For this film, Katrina was nominated for the first major Indian Filmfare Award. She ended the year with another successful film “The Amazing Story of Strange Love” – the audience was delighted with the performance of her favorite actress paired with Ranbir Kapoor.
The directors adored Katrina for her perseverance in achieving her goals. The girl was duplicated for a long time by colleagues in the shop because she did not speak Hindi. But soon she spoke, and at the same time began to perform national dances in the frame. So, in 2012 she performed brilliantly with a dance number in the movie “The Way of Fire”.
In the following years, the actress did not reincarnate. Katrina played a Pakistani intelligence agent (“There Was a Tiger”), a circus star (“Bikers 3”), a bank employee who stole a diamond (“That Day”). In Abhishek Kapoor’s production of Obsession, he even had to dye his hair bright red.
One day the girl was lucky enough to star in Yasha Chopra, who is called the king of romance in Bollywood. The director is able to present the heroine in a favorable light. Katrina Kaif dreamed of working with Chopra, and such a chance came – she, along with Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma, appeared in his film “While I’m Alive”, which earned three tens of millions of dollars in the box office, becoming an undisputed hit.
2017 did not bring satisfaction to the actress, although viewers received two films starring Katrina. The action movie “Tiger is Alive” and “Detective Jagga” failed to recoup the money spent on filming.
Katrina Kaif Personal life
Of course, the personal life of Bollywood beauty is under close scrutiny by the press. In 2003, journalists enthusiastically told readers about Katrina’s novel with movie and TV star Salman Khan.
The girl later admitted that for the first time in her life she has serious feelings for the man and is grateful for the great support from him. The experienced artist encouraged the novice star professionally: when it became difficult, he persuaded to rise and overcome the difficulties of the chosen field.
Fans rejoiced for seven years. It was almost a wedding, at least Salman offered his lover a hand and a heart. But the actress refused, citing the fact that so far a career is more important than family life.
A few months before the official separation, the actress starred in the film “The Amazing Story of Strange Love” and during her work was fascinated by Ranbir Kapoor. But fans did not know about the couple’s warm relationship until 2013. Then photos taken by the paparazzi during the joint vacation of the actors appeared in the press. Rumors spread that the young men were engaged.
Three years later, the star couple broke the hearts of fans, announcing their separation, although for a year they divided their lives in two. So far, the girl has not been seen in another romantic relationship.
