Mumbai: Katrina Kaif is not a delicate darling. She has the power within her to do the unthinkable and with finesse. The pretty Bollywood diva, who is all set to make a splash on the silverscreen with Salman Khan starrer Tiger Zinda Hai, took to Instagram to share an awe-inspiring video with a meaningful caption.
The video was shot during one of those rigorous training sessions when she was preparing for her role in the sequel to 2012 Eid blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger.
As Zoya, Katrina came across as a courageous woman, who sets out on a life-threatening mission.
Her Instagram video is solid proof that Katrina knows how to get into the skin of the character she plays onscreen.
It's Not the size of the person that matters in the fight....it's the size of the fight in the person training for action
Talking about Katrina’s dedication, filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar during an interview a few days back said, “Katrina has really pushed herself for the part. She has also gone the extra mile to train in important nuances like aggressive hand-to-hand combat. The action that Katrina has done looks very real onscreen, despite being mounted on a grand scale.”
The director said that Katrina is playing Zoya, a spy, and had to train under real intelligence agents for her role.
"It was essential to understand how such agents think and operate. So, we got Katrina to train with real agents, used their expertise and experience. For instance, as intelligence agents, you have to train in a certain way to keep your mental balance in direst situations," he added.
Working with specialized professionals to crack her role, Katrina also trained in adapting to nuances of body language, mannerisms and other minute details.
Tiger Zinda Hai is slated to release on December 22.
