Katrina Kaif born on July 16th, 1984 in Hong Kong was brought up in Hawaii and London. Born to a Kashmiri father and an English mother, Katrina Kaif is half-British and half-Indian. She grew up into a sensuous teen with sharp features and soon got noticed by the bigwigs in the showbiz world and subsequently landed number of modeling assignments at the tender age of fourteen.
She did ad campaigns for Lakme, Veet, Kodak, Cola, LG, Pantene, Fevicol, L?Oreal, Slice and several others products. Her beautiful face was chosen as the Face of the Year at Lakme India Fashion Week 2005.
Katrinas filmy career began with Kaizad Gustads “Boom” (2003), in which she played the principal character, a model caught in the web of underworld complexities. Though the film failed at the box office, she got widespread attention for her innocent looks and contrasting provocative body. Added to her beauty her cool acting abilities too were well received by critics and cine-goers.
Having discovered her “Boom”ing histrionic talents, Katrina Kaif shifted her base to Mumbai. In spite of having trouble speaking Hindi and other Indian languages, she soon got movie offers. She acted in a couple of Telugu movies, “Malliswari” (2004) and “Allari Pidugu” (2005). After the success of these two movies, she began her Bollywood journey with “Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya” (2005), “Sarkar” (2005) starring along side Amitabh and Abhiskeh Bachchan and directed by Ram Gopal Varma. Then this unstoppable actress went on to act in several movies.
Her seriousness to climb to the top position in Bollywood is seen in the very fact that she took her Hindi classes and dancing lessons very seriously. She quickly learnt the art of dubbing and finally rendered her own lines with ease in “Namaste London” (2007) in which she acted opposite Akshay Kumar.
The promising actress is banking on her yet to be released movies, “Welcome”, “Nanhe”, “Race”, and “Main Yuvraj” hoping that these movies will
Do well at the Box Office and take her career to new heights.
Displaying thorough professionalism, Katrina drew a line separating her personal life from that of professional life, wherein she flatly refused to speak to the media about her romance with co-star Salman Khan.
Katrina is the hottest actress in Bollywood movie industry and with her gorgeous looks and a sexy body many believe that this girl will surely go places in years to come.
