Sheila Ki Jawaani – an item number from Farah Khan’s upcoming Bollywood film, [intlink id="1911" type="post"]Tees Maar Khan[/intlink] is today ruling the airwaves of Bollywood and TV screens. With her super hot performance in this item song, Katrina Kaif has proven that not only does she have an amazingly gorgeous and super sexy body – but behind all the beauty and glamour, she is also talented. Katrina has shown her capability of doing the sensual jhatkas and matkas (which Madhuri Dixit had patented eons ago) and blow away our minds!
Life has not been easy for this young woman. She has had to learn Hindi, learn to speak English with an Indian accent, take acting lessons and above all learn how to perform the inevitable dance moves which are a staple of every Bollywood film. She has done all this with flair and without getting entangled in gossip and rumours. And she has arrived on the center stage to take your breath away! Read on as we tell you the story of how Katrina Kaif, a demure supermodel from London made it to the echelons of Bollywood’s top actresses, beating the likes of Aishwarya Rai and Kareena Kapoor in grabbing roles and endorsements.

How Katrina Kaif Began Her Bollywood Journey
Initially, when Katrina had first entered the Bollywood film industry in 2003 with ‘Boom‘, directed by Kaizad Gustad, no one had expected her to last too long. After all:
- Katrina was a young woman fresh out of London who could not speak Hindi at all.
- She knew little about Indian culture and was a total outsider.
- Born out of the union of an English mother and a Kashmiri father, she had spent most of her young life living in England.
- Not only that, she also knew little about the nuances of acting and even less about Bollywood films.
So basically, she knew absolutely nothing about films and acting, about the movie culture in India. No dancing skills, no knowledge of Hindi – who could have fathomed that seven years later, she would be ruling Bollywood. Agreed looks can take you places in the film and fashion industry but eventually, its your talent and character which takes you the top.
It is a tribute to the determination and will-power behind these soft looks that we have seen her go as far as she has done today. Not only is Katrina Kaif counted as one of the top actresses, but she also has innumerable endorsements in the advertising field. Above all has been given a variety of roles where she has proven her mettle.
And How She Moved On to Stardom
In her first super hit film, Namastey London, she played the role of a British girl opposite Akshay Kumar. Light and bubbly, it was the staple romance of rural boy meets foreign girl. The film was widely lauded as one of Katrina’s best performances and she even bagged a couple of awards for it. Incidentally, Namastey was Akshay Kumar’s last critically acclaimed film after which he has delivered some really mind numbing movies!
This was followed by many other hits such as Welcome, Apne and Partner. In Race, Katrina played a villainous girl, and managed to hold her own among stars such as Akshay Khanna, Saif Ali Khan and Bipasha Basu.
Her first big hit in 2010 was Rajneeti which further endorsed her acting abilities. A performance that Prakash Jha seems to have been modelled on Sonia Gandhi, she portrayed the role of a politician’s wife thrust into the limelight with consummate ease. This will be followed by Tees Maar Khan, due for release in December, where if the promos are anything to go by, she is the most gorgeous woman in all of B-town.

Katrina’s Link Ups and Break Ups
Katrina Kaif was once the girlfriend of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan. However, something did not work out fine between the two and they separated. Katrina has often been linked with Akshay Kumar too because they have worked in a number of films together. Currently, the media is busy cooking up stories of Katrina’s alleged affair with Ranbir Kapoor, which I think is a total media masala soup for some measly TRPs.
So What Does Katrina Kaif have That Others Don’t?
Apart from her delicate beauty, sharp features and a super hot body (she is size zero now to top it all!), it’s probably her dedication to her work and ability to pick up skills. As an actress, what sets her apart from the other hapless Bollywood heroines is her ability to seamlessly flow into comedy or serious roles and make her mark. In Welcome, which was an out-and-out comedy, she danced and pouted her way into our hearts. Ajab Prem Ki Gazaab Kahani was another such gem – where romance and comedy with Ranbir Kapoor gave us another hit. In New York, even though the film was not a great commercial success her performance was highly appreciated by audiences.
I have learnt not to make plans in life, because a lot of time you make a plan that is not going to work for you. Right now I am working on my career and trying to be genuine to my work. If you respect what you have got, God will give you what you need.
