Katrina Kaif Quotes

I live on my own terms, and I work on my own terms. You can’t live according to the expectation of others. It’s not a healthy way of working or living. I have always done the best I could do. I was never disappointed playing the glamor quotient in my earlier films… Even a serious film like New York has had its fair share of song-and-dance moments. I am too young to not enjoy these films and the fun side of film-making. I really wanted to do these films, as my heart has never been much into serious fare. As an actress, I am more comfortable in romantic comedy, and I don’t see any harm in that. — Katrina Kaif

Everyone goes through their own journey. Sometimes things can get hurtful. But sometimes too much intrusion of privacy can get to you, but I know that this is something that you cannot avoid.

Except for Preity Zinta, I haven’t met a single secure actress in Bollywood. — Katrina Kaif

Frankly speaking, I hate comparisons. Two individuals are doing two different films, playing two different characters: how can you compare them? It is not fair to get into ratings.

I don’t think every actress in Bollywood has been associated with Lux.

I have to be a really selfish, scheming woman who stops at nothing to achieve her ambitions… and yet stay connected to the audience. And, boy, does this character enjoy creating scenes! I don’t want to copy the actress in the original film. This would be my take on a character I like because she’s just the opposite of who and what I am. I don’t like such characters in real life, honestly.

It’s totally the unrestricted me. It is the first time I am playing my age, and when I watched the video, I felt this is the real me. Kabir Khan (director) has a whole new approach to film-making and I am so glad I could be part of this. — Katrina Kaif

It’s not my style to either wear minimum clothes, to strip or to even be comfortable with a sex-symbol label. I just want to do good work instead of sporting such meaningless tags. Sex sells, but to a small extent, not always. And this is what filmmakers have to accept. The exposure has to be relevant to the film and its characters and not forced for the sake of titillation. On the contrary, some of the greatest Indian films have been devoid of all these sexual trappings. I know my comfort zone in today’s Indian culture and society. — Katrina Kaif

Ranbir and I cannot get more unconventional than what we have done in ‘Raajneeti’. We’ve gone into a completely new space. If and when we do another film, it will have to be completely mainstream. — Katrina Kaif

Really, I don’t see things like that. I take each movie at it’s own pace and don’t quite start looking at the work I have done in the past and go gaga about it. It’s like a new journey every time and hence has never got that feeling that ‘Oh, since I now have so many successful films under my name, let me take it easy’. Yes, the way success helps you is reinstate the faith and belief that you have in yourself and push yourself to work harder. This is something that I am following. — Katrina Kaif

This is true that I have decided to go for no make-up. Anybody who has to don heavy make-up and is constantly exposed to the arc lights would be able to give you an answer as to why I have done that. It affects your skin badly. I also think that beyond a point it’s unnatural to don heavy make-up all the time. — Katrina Kaif

When I first asked director Kabir Khan about my character, he told me that Maya is like every girl… she is you without make up and costumes. I realised that he was telling me to be myself in the film. — Katrina Kaif

When I saw the film last week, I saw me. I can’t be myself in every movie of mine. But when that happens, the film has to be special. I was taken aback at Kabir’s grasp of the subject and story telling style. — Katrina Kaif
