Katrina Kaif, whose newest film Race releases today, is very happy with the work and the type of films she has done. She is enjoying doing fun commercial films and says the more serious roles will come later.
Katrina said, “I am pretty clear about what I want to do. I don’t want to go down the road doing serious cinema. I am happy doing commercial films. The fun films give the audience time to escape the monotony in everyday life.”
Adding, “I love what I am doing and there is plenty of time to do serious films. I am sure I will do them. But at this point I am really enjoying myself and I love dancing, I love the characters I am playing. Last year, I did a lot of comedies; at the same time I did Namastey London, which was a fantastic character. This year, I have a slightly greater variety of roles.”
About her success so far Katrina stated, “I don’t think it’s a matter where you place yourself. It’s a matter of how your fan feels about you and where the industry finds you. At this particular place I think I am lucky to be able to say that I do get offers for a lot of film.”
Her first release of 2008 is Race and about the film she said, “I don’t want to give away too much about my role because it is a suspense film. My character has a lot more shades. She is something you don’t expect from me. I saw the first print of the film. It is a very tongue- in-cheek kind of film and not to be taken very seriously. It is one of those films where good guys are really good and bad guys are even worse. It is like those heightened novels of Agatha Christie where everything is a little exaggerated. The overall experience was truly entertaining.”
In the pipeline she has several exciting projects; Singh is King with Akshay Kumar and a highly anticipated pairing with Ranbir Kapoor in Rajkumar Santoshi’s Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. “Singh Is King is a comedy. Rajkumar Santoshi’s script is one of the best scripts I have ever heard. It will be a new experience for me.”
There is also a film for the Yash Raj banner and about that project she said, “Yes, I am doing a Yash Raj film with John Abraham. Neil Mukesh is also in the film. I think the best if they (producers) speak about the film. It is a completely different genre and not something I have done before.”
We look forward to seeing Katrina in all these projects. Keep checking back here often for more news about each of her new films.
