The uncrowned queen of the Bollywood industry Katrina Kaif will be seen sizzling on the big screen along with her ex-flame Salman Khan on August 15 in Kabir Khan’s much-anticipated upcoming film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and in a recent interview with TOI, the actress has shared her thoughts over her nine-year long B’town journey.
The 28-year-old started her career in 2003 with ‘Boob’ and today she stands next the leading ladies of the industry.
One distributor recently called Katrina the fourth Khan in the industry due to her box office average but Kat believes no one can really reach the level of Aamir, Salman or Shah Rukh.
She told TOI, “As for the Khans — I don’t think anyone can be them. Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman are a phenomenon. To achieve that magnitude of popularity and remain heartthrobs for over two decades is not an easy feat.”
Kareena Kapoor is considered as the ultimate diva of Bollywood industry at this point in time and Khans are the main reason behind her success. She gave industry blockbuster hits like ‘Bodyguard’, ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘Ra.One’ but basically the movies were liked because of Khans.
However, this time it is Katrina who has three Khan movies in her kitty and she is really happy because she thinks her roles also have the credibility in the films.
She said, “I’m grateful to my makers that I’m not just an ornament in a Khan film. My roles have substance. This can be a tricky situation. One can be tempted to sign a project because you want to work with an actor whom you admire but it is also equally important to have a credible role in such a project.”
“I have been asked whether I’m just going to be an ornament in any of my Khan films. Well I can say that — Salman is holding the fort; but my role has credibility. Kabir will never write a candy floss role for his heroine.”
Well, all said and done, let’s see how many records ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ break at the box office.
