Katrina Kaif Biography
Katrina Kaif is an English actress who works in Hindi films. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics for her acting prowess, she has established herself in Bollywood and is one of India’s highest-paid actresses.
Born in Hong Kong, Katrina Kaif and her family lived in several countries before she moved to London. She received her first modeling assignment as a teenager and later pursued a career as a fashion model. At a fashion show in London, filmmaker Kaizad Gustad spotted Katrina.
He decided to cast her in Boom (2003), a critical and commercial failure. While filming in India, Katrina received modeling assignments and established a successful modeling career. However, filmmakers were hesitant to cast her due to her poor command of Hindi. After appearing in the Telugu film, Malliswari (2004), Katrina earned commercial success in Bollywood with the romantic comedies Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya? (2005) and Namastey London (2007). She followed with a series of box-office hits, but was criticized for her acting, repetitive roles and inclination to male-dominated films.
Katrina Kaif’s performance in the terrorism drama New York (2009) was better received, earning her a Filmfare Award for Best Actress nomination. After roles in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009), Raajneeti (2010) and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011), she received her second Filmfare nomination for her performance in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (2011). Katrina Kaif’s highest-grossing films came with the spy thriller Ek Tha Tiger (2012) and its 2017 sequel, and the action thriller Dhoom 3 (2013), all of which rank among the highest-grossing Indian films of all time.
In addition to acting, Katrina is involved with her mother’s charity and participates in stage shows. She is guarded about her personal life, which is a subject of media scrutiny, as is her background.

She may be one of Bollywood’s most loved actors, but Katrina Kaif has always admitted that she is happiest when she’s with her family. It’s therefore not very surprising that the actor quietly flew off to England to ring in her 35th birthday with friends and some of her sisters. “I am here only for three days before I return to Mumbai to finish Aanand L Rai’s film, Zero,” said Katrina, fresh off a train journey to the English countryside to ring in her birthday. We chatted with her about life, career and birthdays.
What’s the big plan for your birthday?
Actually, I landed in London (UK) from New York (USA) towards the end of last week. From there, I travelled to a place in the countryside, just outside of England. So, right now, I am here with a few friends and some of my sisters.
Do you like birthdays?
Yes, I think they are nice and fun. You can say that I am ‘calmly excited’ rather than ‘giddily excited’ about birthdays. It’s also a nice reason to take some time out in a guilt-free manner.
With friends and sisters around, what’s on the cards? A big party or a quiet dinner?
It’s a fun kind of place, and more importantly, we are all together, so you can say that we will be somewhere in between.
Work-wise, things have been going great for you, on the back of Tiger Zinda Hai (TZH)…
Yes, definitely! I think it’s been a really exciting year for me. I have been extremely satisfied when it comes to work. TZH got loads of appreciation. It was a wonderful experience for all of us, so that gives a lot of creative satisfaction.
You have an exciting line up ahead as well…
I am very excited. Deciding to work with Aanand L Rai has been a really fantastic step for me as an actor. He gives you so much attention and helps you with every step, which helps a lot as a performer. I am really excited for Zero. Then, there’s Thugs of Hindostan (TOH), which is a really ambitious film. Like Zero’s team, it was wonderful working with Thugs’ unit as well.
You have also worked back-to-back with the three Khans (Salman, Shah Rukh and Aamir) in TZH, Zero and TOH…
They are all amazing people to work with and it’s extremely educational every time I get to work with them. But what’s more important to me is being a part of good films that take cinema to newer levels in terms of content, skills, and sheer cinematic experience. I am extremely happy that I got a chance to be a part of such films.
Is it true that you will soon write your autobiography?
No, that’s absolutely not true. I don’t think that’s going to happen. Yes, I am definitely looking forward to get into production at some point – maybe not all by myself, but through a joint production. Currently, one of the ideas is under development. I am working on it and that project could materialize. That’s something I would definitely like to look into and hopefully be a part of, besides a few business lines that I am considering.
