Actress happy with success, but says it’s tough to feel completely ‘secure’ in showbiz
Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma wished birthday girl Katrina Kaif, their Zero co-star, this Monday with a release of the actress’s intense first look in the December release. SRK wrote: “There are so many lovely pictures of her, but this one speaks to me beyond my friends beauty....hope u all also give it love. @katrinakaif”.
In spite of such glowing words and superhit films Raajneeti, Ek Tha Tiger, Dhoom 3 and Tiger Zinda Hai to her credit, Katrina says it is tough to feel completely “secure” in the movie business.
The actress believes that the industry is changing rapidly and to stay relevant, one needs to explore new arenas.
“I don’t think you can ever feel 100 per cent accomplished and secure in your career because it is a rapidly changing industry. Things are changing so quickly. But now I do feel comfortable and confident here,” Katrina told PTI in the run-up to her birthday that she celebrated in London.
“I have had a career that has been successful. Going ahead, you have to put in that much hard work, keep performing and keep doing films in new spaces that are not only challenging but also interesting to audience,” she said over the phone.
Katrina’s last release Tiger Zinda Hai, opposite Salman Khan, was a blockbuster and earned over Rs 545 crore worldwide.
Her next two — Zero and Thugs of Hindostan — are with old co-stars Shah Rukh and Aamir Khan, respectively.
Looking back at the year, she said it has been “fulfilling and gratifying for me”. “This year has been really good for me, Tiger Zinda Hai did very well and it was a new film for the audience and people appreciated it. It feels great that the Tiger franchise continues to be a success.
“Aanand L. Rai’s Zero is something on which I had a very fulfilling experience.
He really helps you. It was a good learning experience. And then I have Thugs of Hindostan with Aamir… There is a definite possibility that both the films will step up... be the next level (in visual effects),” she added.
There have been rumours that Katrina will be seen in Raajneeti 2, Krrish 4, Aditya Dhar’s film with Akshay Kumar, but according to her, she has not been approached for any of the projects.
“The only film I will be working on next is the dance film by Remo D’Souza and there are few ongoing discussions but things are not finalised,” she said.
The dance drama also stars Varun Dhawan and the duo will soon start preparing for the project.
“It is a film on dance so the preparation and the kind of dance forms that we are planning to achieve it is not going to be easy. There will be lot of training. We will start training in the next few months and the shooting would begun by the end of the year,” she added.
