Katrina Kaif has come a long way in the Hindi film industry. Initially, the actor was just called a ‘pretty face’ and known for her association with Salman Khan. The actor would use a dubbing artist to shield her linguistic difficulties.
However, her hard work and perseverance has paid off, as she trained hard to master a foreign language, worked on improving her acting abilities, comic timing, action sequences, and developed superlative strength as a dancer.
Rejected from her first film Saaya, where she was cast to play a ghost, and was briefed to walk past the lead actor (John Abraham) in the first shot, which subsequently led to her being chucked out by director (Anurag Basu) after two days on production. Katrina was heart-broken to come to terms with the fact.
Recently, the actor worked in a full-fledged ambitious Anurag Basu directorial (Jagga Jasoos) and delivered a mega-hit with Salman Khan (Tiger Zinda Hai) where she stood out and complemented Salman with equal strength and screen presence as a RAW agent.
Katrina plans to document all of her career’s ups and downs in her biography. Where she witnessed many failures and rejections yet took them all in her stride and came out stronger as a lead performer. She claims to have educated herself on the industry, which was most alien to her during her struggle period.
Today, Katrina enjoys immense goodwill and brand equity owing to her intelligent film choices, constant evolvement as an artist. The actor meditates daily and is mindful of the thoughts, by constantly monitoring them to be positive and productive. She reads about influential people’s life journeys and careers, to maintain a positive mindset.
