Mumbai: Bollywood lass Katrina Kaif is out to prove herself and is looking forward to challenging roles that promise her a complete makeover. News has it that Katrina is training for her first full-fledged action role which can be best described as “a blend of ‘Kill Bill’, ‘Lara Croft’ and our own ‘Zakhmi Aurat’.”

Talking to a daily, a source close to the actress said, “Kat has been working out with her trainer Yasmin to get a fully-toned physique. It’s for an out-and-out action film that she will star in and produce in the middle of next year. She has already got the director on board and will take two months off next year to train in three styles of martial arts. She has already met the right trainers abroad. They will join her in the first-half of 2011 to get her prepared for the role.”

The unnamed flick will be a female-centric film where Ranbir Kapoor and Akshay Kumar will be seen in cool cameos.

Excited about her latest project, Katrina, “I wanted to do a kick-ass action flick for the longest. Not too many such roles are written for actresses in our cinema. I don’t want to play the action girl with a masculine kind of physique. I want her to be sexy, yet athletic and agile. I am working on it.”
