I’ve heard people say, ‘Katrina Kaif is so expressionless on screen’. ‘Oh she doesn’t know how to act,’ and even some crass jokes- ‘Even Yash Chopra, the king of romance, couldn’t make her act!’. My heart aches EVERY TIME I hear something like this. Why, you ask?
Because most people completely overlook her steady growth in Bollywood, which she’s managed to do by the way despite being an outsider who didn’t even speak the language of Hindi cinema. Katrina has evolved with every film and her persistence has put her right there on top.
Her box office success with multiple blockbusters and uninhibited item numbers haven’t gone to her head either. She’s not afraid of showing her real side on social media despite all her success and controversies.
1. She’s Such a GOOFBALL
If you follow Katrina on Instagram closely, you’ll see glimpses of the girl behind the diva. She joined in late, but is doing the right things. Her Instagram account has been cracking me up since April last year. Every picture tells a story too.
First she looks adorable in that Stitch hat and LOOK AT THE CAPTION!
Effortlessly funny. Not convinced yet? There’s more. Don’t miss the captions!
This one will make you thank the lord for filters. LOL!
2. She Got Moves That Can Drive You CRAZY
If you thought that Katrina was always the ‘liquid electricity’ you see on screen today, you’re wrong. TBH, she was pretty crappy at it in the beginning of her career. But as they say - practice makes perfect.
Need I say more about her Sheila Ki Jawani, Chameli and Kamli dance numbers?
3. DEEP, Like the Ocean
Okay, that sounds lame. But Katrina does have some intense philosophies in life. If you remember her Koffee With Karan episode with Anushka Sharma, you know what I’m talking about. From life and work to family and relationships, this gorgeous lady has her head and heart int he right place.
On her rumoured break-up with Ranbir Kapoor and the merciless media speculations around the same, she once said:
Katrina Kaif, ActorIt really didn’t matter to me what was being written. It mattered to me what was happening.
And last but not the least...
4. Fitness Junkie
Katrina Kaif is by far the fittest female actor in Bollywood right now. If you’ve been following her on social media, you know how seriously she takes it all. Not just that, she has a reputation of making her co-stars slog it out on the treadmill too.
Parineeti Chopra joked on Koffee With Karan about how Katrina made the whole Dream Team work out while on tour and ordered healthy food for them too.
I sure don’t need more reasons to be a big fan. So here’s wishing the gorgeous Katrina a very happy birthday. Whoopy. ?
