Interview of Katrina kaif - katrina.big.collection



Interview of Katrina kaif
interview - Interview of Katrina kaif Mulher Celebridades/Música Indiano/a
"I have a strong connection with the UK"
Published Thursday, Mar 22 2012,21:20 GMT

©Arguably the biggest heroine in Bollywood, Katrina Kaif 's film career has risen to even more stratospheric levels than when we last caught up for Tees Maar Khan . In between takes on her new Yash Chopra production opposite Shah Rukh Khan, Digital Spy sat down with Google India's most-searched celebrity.
Kaif spoke to us about her past five weeks in the UK, why her new project is not called London Ishq , and how UK fans can meet her at a special fundraiser screening of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara .

How did the idea for a screeningcome about?

"My brother Michael is studying Furniture Design and Craftsmanship at Bucks New University. They are putting together an event that will raise money for an exhibition which is called New Designers. It is basically giving students an opportunity to exhibit their work and give them a platform to showcase what they are working on, and show their talent.
"So my brother came up with the idea of screening one of my films and doing a question and answersession and a general chat after the screening. I thought that it was a nice idea and I was happy to help him out."

How did you single out Zoya Akhtar's Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara over some of your other films like Rajneeti or Namaste London ?

"I think it is one of the most current films that I have starred in. The other thing is that my family really liked the film and it is something which they found slightly more relatable. In terms ofif you are going to do a discussion of a film at a university,this draws in what I would term the 'new wave' of cinema that weare seeing do well in our industry.It is slightly different from your regular commercial Hindi film, so makes an interesting point of discussion."

What scene from the film are you most proud of that your fans can look out for as they watch?

"If you ask me for my favourite scene, or is it my favourite film or performance that I have done for a film, I don't know if that can be answered. But for me, I feel the film as a whole works. Zoya got together a good group of people to all contribute to the film as a whole. I don't know if one persontakes away the glory or the credit of the film. For me it was a team effort."

When Digital Spy asked the same question to Hrithik Roshan, he said his favourite scene was getting to jump out of a plane. But of course you did not get to do that.
"I did not, that is very true. I did get to do underwater scuba diving in the film, playing a diving instructor. That was definitely the most difficult thing that I have ever done. It was extremely terrifying and not something I would particularly want to do again, but I think it works well in the film."

When you meet with your UK fans, do you feel that you act as an inspiration for them to followtheir own Bollywood dreams?
"I don't particularly know, and I wouldn't want to make a statement like that, you know to necessarily give that much importance to what I do. But I do think that there is a certain connection. I have spent some years here and my family is here - some of them. I think there is a certain connection, a lot of the films that I have shot here have really worked well for me.
"Every time that I have come here for an interaction - the last time was something we did with a radio station, where we had an audience interaction - it has been so much fun. It is not something Ido often, but when I have I have really enjoyed it."
What are you planning to wear for the event? Something that Manish Malhotra suggests or thefirst thing that you pull out of your wardrobe?
"Actually I think it is going to be whatever I am wearing on set for the film that day, because I'll be coming straight after pack up of the shoot."
Will anybody from the film be accompanying you? Shah Rukh Khan, Yash Chopra? Anupam Kher?
"I am not too sure, I think I will just be coming."
What have been doing over the last five weeks when you have had time off from filming?
"Well, I have been catching up with my family and going out to restaurants, the restaurants here are amazing. I haven't been goingout every night so much but have seen a bit of what is out there. I have been out shopping, playing a lot of Scrabble, a lot of card games and just spending time together."
You are coming to the end of your filming schedule in the UK. What is next? More work on this film, or back to Ek Tha Tiger withSalman Khan?
"Yes, I go back to India on the 27th and will start shooting againfor Ek Tha Tiger ."
What message do you have for your fans about the fundraising event on Saturday?
"It's a very special thing, and closeto my heart because obviously I am doing something like this withmy brother for the first time. When I usually do events here in the UK I don't always get the chance, so it is something I am really looking forward to.
"It is for a great cause and the students have worked really hard in an industry where - to be completely honest- there isn't the scope to always earn a lot of money in it. It is something they do out of passion. It is an artistic expression, and I can understand that and relate to that in some way, so I think it is something good to support."
What about your sister Isabelle [currently studying at Lee Strasberg Institute]. Any more news on her rumoured launch into Bollywood?
"Right now she is still doing a bit of stuff in America, so let us see what happens after that."
There were many reports in the media about your new Yash Chopra film being called London Ishq .
"It's a nice name, but inappropriate for this film and definitely not the name. That won't be the name."
Katrina Kaif will attend an exclusive screening of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara at 7.30pm on March 24 at Bucks New University in High Wycombe, UK.

KATRINA KAIF EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

Copyright of Ikonz/Ricky Combo EXCLUSIVE - By Reena Combo
Katrina Kaif recently made a low-key trip to the UK as the ambassador of Etihad Airways for their press conference. I was lucky enough to meet up with the Bollywood sensation and talk about her acting, that huge hit ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’, working with Akshay Kumar, probe her about Salman Khan, ask her how she maintains her great figure and why she chose to represent Etihad. Katrina Kaif looked stunning throughout the interview, she was graceful, enigmatic and very honest.
IKONZ: You’ve become the ambassador of Etihad Airways recently, how did that come about?
KATRINA: Well they were looking for someone to represent the airline and their management contacted me initially. We talked about travel in great detail, my likes, my dislikes and what things were important to me as a working actress who travels a lot. We also talked about our concerns about travelling and we found that we had very similar concerns too. I really loved their vision of what they were trying todo. For me the biggest downside of travel can be that it can be quite intimidating and a lonely process, and that’s something they hope to change. They want to make travelling much more fun,much more care-free and make the whole process a lot more welcoming and pleasant – which Ireally liked. Even if you look at their advertising, it’s really uncharacteristic for an airline the way they have portrayed themselves in such a fun and laid back way.
IKONZ: Tell me more about the dance competition you’ve recently launched with the airline.
KATRINA: Well they wanted to do something that showed that the approach to travelling doesn’t have to be so serious or daunting.It also fitted in well with what I do too and the type of songs that I’ve been in the last year or so, so they wanted to incorporate all that too. It was an interesting andfun idea that bought together thetwo things, including dancing. It was really fun as the advert was based on a song and the dance sequence in the advert was choreographed by Farah Khan.
IKONZ: Talking of dancing, that brings me to my next questions – your hit recent song from the film ‘Tees Maar Kaan’ - 'Shiela Ki Jawani’ has done phenomenally well and you looked fab in it. Was the dance competition inspired from the hit song?
KATRINA: I don’t think that was the sole reason for the decision but I’m sure the secret of any brand or corporation when endorsing is to intergrate the two. For any brand who has an ambassador it’s important to understand what the two parties are about and incorporate them in.
IKONZ: As a celebrity you always have to be quite cautious about putting your name to a product or service, what was it about this competition with Etihad that made you want to be involved?
KATRINA: Well I think Etihad is oneof the brands that I didn’t take too much time thinking about or do much research over – because I had already travelled with them previously and instantly felt they had striking differences from others, and their company is beyond dispute of their reputation and success. So, in thatsense it wasn’t too much of a difficult decision and of course our approaches were quite similar.
IKONZ: ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’ was, and still is a huge Bollywood hit and your dancing was amazing – how much practice went into the song?
KATRINA: We spent about 3 days practicing for the song- few hours a day really and it was a lot of fun. But at the time of practicing it’s just a song really, there’s no way of predicting which way it will go. You can aim and train as much as you want and hope it will become a sensation, but the truth is you justnever know if it will or not. You can aim for the success, but you don’t know – and I certainly didn’tknow at the time that the song was going to blow up like it has. The realisation of its success was quite gradual and then I realised the magnitude of how successful the song was and it felt really nice.
IKONZ: What do you think it was about the song that people like so much, apart from the catchy lyrics?
KATRINA: It’s the type of song thatall ages would like. Everyone can relate to the steps and imitate them, which makes it quite fun. There are so many kids that love the song too and they even try to copy the moves which is really nice.

IKONZ: You’re constantly in the press, it can’t be easy coping themedia pressures?
KATRINA: You know that’s quite a difficult question, it’s one that hastwo answers really – one that I can kind of answer for and one that I’m not even entirely sure of myself if I’m honest. If you have a film release then the press is important to market the film, to do the appearances, to do the press conferences and so on – which is what you need for the success of the film. But then whenyou’re in between of a release and have about 5 or 6 months when you haven’t got a film coming out you ideally would like to be left alone, but you can’t as that just doesn’t happen.
Like, what are you meant to do – send out a legal note saying ‘you will now not right about me for six months’ (she laughs) – but no you can’t do that. It is tricky, because really the Indian film industry is quite small and there are a few people that are written about constantly in the media. People can also turn around and say well you’ve asked for that by choosing to live your life in the spotlight.
I think like any actior, not everyone wants their every move or decision speculated by the media. Every move is given an opinion about by the media, when really those people writing the stories have no idea what they are talking about. I find it really funny how the media can give a list of how you’re feeling, what you’ve done, how you’ve done what you’ve done without actually knowing anything!
IKONZ: It’s probably because youbeing on their covers helps them sell?
KATRINA: Well why don’t they write about cheery, happy things – instead of depressing things?! (she laughs)
IKONZ: Well I’m going to do the typical media thing now and try and delve into your personal lifetoo! Your relationship status is always a big issue in the media – can you set the story straight for our reader. Is Katrina single or not?
KATRINA: (She smiles) I’ve always said from the beginning that I just don’t comment on my personal life, because I just think it’s easier that’s why.
Sorry guys…we did try!
IKONZ: You were born in Hong Kong, and then lived a life in many countries – so how did youget involved in Bollywood?
KATRINA: Well I’d come for a shoot with Farooq, who is a leading photographer in Mumbai and still doing very well and I connected with Mumbai. I was 17-years-old at the time and reallyliked it there – I felt this sense of coming home. My uncle was in Bangalore at the time so the timing felt right. I started to gradually get offers for work so I just went with it, and it kind of just progressed itself without me even realising it.
IKONZ: Did you alwayswant to be an actress?
KATRINA: No! I think it was very gradual as I didn’t grow up thinking I wanted to be an actress. I wanted to be really random things. I’d come out with really bizarre and eccentric things.One second I wanted to be a stunt-woman, the next I wanted to do horse riding – I definitely didn’t want to do anything mundane, that was quite clear to me, but I didn’t know I wanted to be an actress.
IKONZ: You’re very stylish and seem to have this certain style about you. Is there anyone who inspires your style?
KATRINA: Honestly speaking I don’t really have any particular persons who I look up to, or idolsas such. Everyone’s talented in their own right and everyone’s beautiful so I didn’t really aspire to be like anyone. I remember really liking the way Penelope Cruzlooked and always thought she was really beautiful. So if we’re looking at style I would say she’s someone I think has great style, and even her career choices are to be commended.
IKONZ: Would you ever pursue the Hollywood film industry if the opportunity ever came up?
KATRINA: No! I think everyone hasa single amount in them of what they can offer and I think whatever I have I will use it for where I am now – and that’s home in Mumbai. I’m not going toget up now and try and pursue somewhere new. I already came to India and that was quite alien for me at the time and I’ve settled there now. Hollywood doesn’t actually excite me. I’ve received somuch from India, so much love, somuch praise, so much support from the people so I wouldn’t want to leave that.
IKONZ: You’ve done a string of films with Akshay Kumar and your on-screen ‘Jodi’ is such a huge hit – you must really enjoy working with him. What’s Akshay like to work with?
KATRINA: It’s really nice. It’s something that seems like it’s been so many years now, so it’s interesting what type of equation we’ve settled down to. When I first worked with him it was a little awkward – I was like ‘who’s this guy, he’s so scary!’ (she laughs), and I think he thought I was like an alien from Mars or something, by time the second film came we still weren’t speaking as much but found our balance with each other and by the third and fourth film we found a really interesting equation which works so well. It’snot like we’re the best of pals off-screen and we talk everyday but we have developed a good friendship. He can just look at me and see my face and know whether or not I’m at a happy place in my life at that time or not.We do have a deep connection.
IKONZ: And…what’s it like working with Salman Khan?
KATRINA: It’s great…get used to coming late on set all the time, butI like it because you get to sit around a lot (she smiles)
IKONZ: What? Is Salman always late for shooting?
KATRINA: Always – all the time he is late! When you look at it actually, me and Salman haven’t actually done that much work together. I did my first main film with him, and then the second film we did was ‘Partner’, but I was actually starring opposite Govinda in the film. The in ‘Yuvraaj’ we probably only had about five scenes together in the whole film. I haven’t actually worked a huge amount with him, but from what I hear from others he’s always working very hard in all of his films.
IKONZ: You’ve got an amazing figure – what’s your secret?
KATRINA: Well firstly thank you so much! Less than eating sensibly – which I know how to – but don’t actually want to, I train. If I need to know I need to train for something then I do. I’m actually really bad in that way – like if I know I have two months before afilm where I know my outfits aren’t so clingy or revealing then I’ll just chill out, laze around and not go to the gym, but if I know my outfits are a little more demanding then I will train really hard. I’m lucky enough to have a really great trainer, who I’ve got a really good connection with. In ‘Sheila ki Jawani’ I had to show my stomach, which I absolutely hate doing – I hate showing my stomach, we trained for 18 days, which was hard but we managedto achieve what I needed for that song.
IKONZ: What have you got in thepipeline next for Bollywood fanatics?
KATRINA: The next film I have releasing is directed by Zoya Akhtar, opposite Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol (Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara ). Then my next film after that will be withImran Khan, (Mere Brother Ki Dulhan ).
IKONZ: And can you reveal whether or not the rumours of you being in Dostana 2 are actually true?
KATRINA: Um, I don’t know yet…
Hmmm we think you do Katrina!
IKONZ: Finally a message for all you fans reading this interview….
KATRINA: If I’m not mistaken I think all of my films have had a huge opening in the UK, so that obviously means either I’ve just been really lucky with my co-stars or that the UK audiences really love me, which I’m hoping is the latter so I’d like to say a huge thank you for that. The support that people seem to give me is amazing, it’s definitely noted and greatly appreciated. It’s great the response I get when I have come to the UK and I reallly, really appreciative that. I appreciare the support I get from all my fans across the world so, so, so much.
