Katrina Kaif (British citizen, born Katrina Turquotte) is one of the highest paid film actors and models of Bollywood. She is also considered one of the most attractive celebrities in India. Starting her career as a teenage model, Katrina has made a name for herself in the Indian film industry.
Katrina Kaif first appeared in the movie Boom in 2003. Even though the movie failed to impress, the song I See You Baby was a foot tapping riot that stuck with listeners and became a major hit. Her next mainstream appearance was with Salman Khan in Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2005), remembered for the extremely groovy chartbuster Just Chill. Katrina appeared in four consecutive box office hits, the first of which was Namastey London (2007). Considered one of her best movies, the film has a rich and varied soundtrack with songs like Chakna Chakna, Main Jahaan Rahoon, and Rafta Rafta. Her next success was the playful comedy Partner (2007), the script of which was perfectly complemented by its soundtrack with fun and naughty numbers like Soni De Nakhre, Maria Maria and You're My Love. She next appeared in Welcome (2008), another comedy with an infectious soundtrack including Kiya Kiya, Uncha Lamba Kad and Hoth Rasiley. Her fourth consecutive hit was the much anticipated Abbas-Mustan’s thriller Race (2008), which included popular songs like Race Saanson Ki, Atif Aslam’s soulful Pehli Nazar Mein and the enticing Zara Zara Touch Me. Katrina continued to star in commercially successful films. In New York (2009), she played an effervescent college girl who marries a young man accused of being part of the 9/11 terror attacks. Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (2011) where she plays a bubbly young girl, was best remembered for the song Dhunki. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011), for which she received her second Filmfare nomination in the Best Actress category, included popular songs like Dil Dhadakne Do, Sooraj Ki Baahon Mein, Khaabon Ke Parinday. Katrina showed off her dance moves in Ishq Shava and romanced Shah Rukh Khan in the sensational Saans song from her next movie Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012). She appeared alongside Salman in the highest grossing film of the year Ek Tha Tiger (2012), famous for the song Mashallah. She also gave brilliant dance performances in Kamli and Malang from Dhoom : 3 (2013). Her dancing skills were much appreciated in “item numbers” like Sheila Ki Jawani (Tees Maar Khan, 2010) and Chikni Chameli (Agneepath, 2012). In recent years, Katrina has done movies like Phantom (2015), popular for the song Afghan Jalebi (Ya Baba) and Jagga Jasoos (2017) with crazy-sweet songs like Jhumritalaiyya and Galti Se Mistake going viral for all the right reasons.
