Her last four films have been with the Top Four, what with Hrithik Roshan (Bang Bang), Aamir Khan (Dhoom 3), Shahrukh Khan (Jab Tak Hai Jaan) and Salman Khan (Ek Tha Tiger) as her co-stars. Coming next are films with Saif Ali Khan (Phantom), Ranbir Kapoor (Jagga Jasoos) and Aditya Roy Kapur (Fitoor). For someone who has just completed 10 years in Bollywood [Sarkar released in July 2005, and Boom (2003) wasn’t really a Hindi film], Katrina Kaif has seen the industry up, close and personal. In a rare conversation, the pretty young woman opens up.
The name Katrina comes with good weight attached to it. Do you now get conscious about expectations more than ever before?
Honestly, I can’t be taking myself very seriously. The way I look at it, I give my best to a film so that audience is not disappointed and they feel entertained. I look at the film as a whole first and then myself. Of course being in the industry for long means that now I need to focus a little more on what I bring on the table as well. I have to do better films, bring on more variety.
What’s your expectation from currently booming film business?
See, it is not like I am craving for a 500 crore biggie here. As you grow and become mature as an actor, you want to leave memorable films behind you. Yes, I have been fortunate enough to have done films which have generated huge numbers. Now I would love to do more number of good films. In the process if they achieve a major milestone commercially too, it would obviously lead to more happiness (smiles).
