Mumbai: Katrina Kaif is all set to perform the most dangerous stunts ever by a leading lady in a Yash Raj film. The voluptuous beauty, who until now limited herself to soft romantic roles, would shed all mush to transform in to a daredevil for the forthcoming adrenalin pumping - ‘Dhoom 3’ opposite Aamir Khan.

Apparently, after the first look of Katrina Kaif in ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, the makers were pretty impressed by the dare-devilry shown by Kat as she seemed totally in sync with the backdrop of this Salman Khan-starrer action extravaganza.

Talking to daily, a source said, “If you look at the other Dhoom films the ladies Esha Deol, Bipasha Basu and Aishwarya Rai had no real stunts to perform. In ‘Dhoom 3’ Katrina was given at least 3 major action sequences for which she was to be specially trained. Now after Tiger, Yashraj is adding a couple of more action sequences which would be managed by a fleet of action co-ordinators."

It is being reported that Aamir Khan, who plays Katrina`s soul-mate in ‘Dhoom 3’, doesn`t have that many action sequences. "He plays a cool cerebral villain, more into the intellect than fists. Yes, he does have some major stunts. But Katrina plays the more fist-friendly character. And ‘Dhoom 3’ would be her first full-fledged action role," said the source.

The film unit has even gone ahead and compared Katrina’s role in ‘Dhoom 3’ with Hollywood actress Uma Thurman`s power-packed role in Quentin Tarantino`s ‘Kill Bill’.

Well…can’t wait to watch Katrina in a real ‘killer’ avatar!
