They say Bollywood friendships are fickle but Katrina Kaif is not one of those with such beliefs. The actor, who has been a part of Bollywood’s biggest hits like Namastey London, Dhoom 3 and Ek Tha Tiger, spoke about how friendships always existed in the film industry but it is the social media which is helping to get the bonds in public.
The actor spoke about her career and feels is “extremely happy and satisfied with the kind of films” she is doing.
“I really enjoy my work. I am very driven and focused on what I want to do. I am extremely happy and satisfied with the kind of films I am doing, getting to work with people who I enjoy working with, learning from new people. It is the same with brands too. It’s not just about showing up on sets, but being a part of the behind-the-scenes interactions as well. So, I enjoy my job,” said the actor.
“With every film, you try and make sure that you are learning. And if there is ever a point when you are distracted, maybe you question yourself — ‘Why? What is happening here? Where am I going wrong? How do I push myself?’,” added the 34-year-old.
She said everyone goes through a phase where they are extremely inspired and then there are times when they feel stagnant.
“(But the idea is to) keep pushing yourself. Try and reinvent and make sure you are doing something new.”
Katrina has played characters that many girls relate with in real life, but is there any dream role that she wants to portray on the big screen?
“For me, every script is a new journey and when the script comes to you, you get excited by that vision. It’s something that has to come on its own.”
It’s not just her films, but the actor is also grabbing eyeballs for her friendship with contemporaries — whether it is sharing a comfortable moment with Anushka Sharma at filmmaker Karan Johar’s chat show or posting photographs of a gym session with Alia Bhatt.
Asked if the concept of rivalry and catfights is just a passe in Bollywood, she said: “Actors have always been like that. There are always some people with whom you get along really well, while there are some you don’t know so well. It’s more visible and open now because of the social media.
“We are more accessible to media (now) but friendships have always been there.”
The actor is currently busy shooting for Tiger Zinda Hai and Thugs of Hindustan. However, she refused to comment on the status of her films.
