New Delhi: There are innumerable stories about cinestars drawing inspiration from various sources. But, this would be a first of an instance when an actress has been motivated by an animal! Katrina Kaif disclosed that she was inspired by a cat for her role in Farah Khan’s entertaining pot-boiler ‘Tees Maar Khan’.

Sounds strange, but the fact is Kat is very fond of Walt Disney Productions’ ‘The Aristocats’ - an animated feature of the 70s and admits that she likens her role of Aliya Khan to that of a real cat.

Addressing to the media while promoting TMK, Katrina informed that Aliya Khan, her character in the film is very innocent. Talking more about her role in the film, she said, “She is a wannabe actress who wants to make it big. She takes everything that people tell her in the literal sense. If they tell her that her make-up is not good, she will go and reapply her make-up. I found many similarities in my role to that of a cat. Especially kittens, they are so cute and innocent. And they have beautiful eyes so my make-up and actions were similar to that of a kitten.”

Well, it must be recalled here that Kat adopted an abandoned cheetah found in the forests recently. So, evidently her love for the animal is understandable. Guess, what the adopted cheetah was called – Catreena!
