It's been more than two decades since Katrina Kaif made her way to Bollywood. The actor is considered one of the country's top female stars, and she has several blockbusters in her kitty. Sriram Raghavan's Merry Christmas, co-starring Vijay Sethupathi, drew a lot of praise for her performance in the film. Moreover, her action-packed avatar in YRF's Spy Universe and Zoya's Hammam sequence in Tiger 3 left an impression on everyone.

Reflecting on Katrina Kaif's early career highlights

During a recent interaction with Variety, the actor retraced her film journey. She told the international publication that she believes her first foray was in a Telugu film, the 2004 romcom Malliswari, in which she plays the title role of a wealthy heiress. After that, Katrina began gaining experience in front of the camera and gradually met directors and producers. She felt like she had accomplished her goal in the modelling world; she had grasped the scenario. The actor had accomplished some of her objectives, and her emotions and desires were in the movies, too.


Katrina's early career highlights include Welcome, Singh Is King, and Namastey London. She claims that the 2009 thriller New York marked a turning point in his career. In addition to Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, the actor's notable works from that period include Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and the political drama.

Instead of calling them films, Katrina would describe them as personal moments; a whole range of feelings and emotions encircled them. At that moment, the film would consume her completely; it wasn't simply about playing a role and then going home. She would spend the rest of her life immersed in that film, that team, that scene, and that setting. Eventually, the film would end, and she would feel a pang of loss and emptiness. Following that, one would move on to the next one; therefore, as an actor and performer, these are all amazing moments for Katrina.

Balancing career choices and personal development

Talking about her love to work for the audience, the actor went on to share that regardless of the circumstances, she has always prioritised pleasing the audience. This principle has guided her career decisions. Currently, Katrina believes that striking a balance is key, like which story she thinks will resonate with viewers. Also, as an actor, who is she currently most drawn to, and what can she do to develop personally? Also, how can she find fulfilment? According to Katrina, this is the precise activity she wants to be engaging in at the moment.

The actor also told the international publication that she had to decline an offer from the West not long ago because of personal issues. However, she remarked that she is confident it will come to fruition, and she is excited about the prospect of turning a new page in her story.
