This British Indian babe, started her career in a spicy avatar in Boom in 2003. Though Boom didn’t work, and was a dud, Katrina Kaif, grabbed eyeballs. Soon she was flooded with modeling assignments and she started bagging endorsements. In 2004, she did a Telugu film called Malliswari, which was a commercial success. After that, Katrina managed to impress a few by her role in Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar.
Post Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2005) things started to change for Katrina. She was getting noticed not only for her charming looks, but also improving diction and performances. She worked with Akshay in “Humko Deewana Kar Gaye”, which was a flop too. She did a few more films in the Southern Film Industry and then post, Namaste London (2007), Kat got her much awaited success.
Following which, Katrina became Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar’s onscreen muse. She signed various projects with both Superstars and the films garnered quite some moolahs and were commercial successes. Though it even earned Kat the tag of arm-candy!
Among her superhits, Partner, Welcome, Singh is King, Race, Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani, Rajneeti, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara, Ek Tha Tiger, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and now Bang Bang, have grossed widely at the Box Office; some even being the massive 100 crore entrants.
