Mumbai: Katrina Kaif, who has evolved as an actress in a career spanning over 9 years in Bollywood is now one of the most sought after actresses in town.
The lady is producers’ hot favourite and also someone who reportedly equals the Khans in terms of her Box Office record.
Katrina has ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ with Salman Khan, slated to release this Eid and an untitled film with Shah Rukh Khan scheduled to fire up the silver screen this year end. She also has ‘Dhoom 3’ opposite Aamir Khan in her kitty. So she has plump projects with all the three superstars and has a fair share of role to play in each of the films.
Talking to a daily, Katrina spoke about what she feels being a part of films starring the Khans. She said, “I`m grateful to my makers that I`m not just an ornament in a Khan film. My roles have substance. This can be a tricky situation. One can be tempted to sign a project because you want to work with an actor whom you admire but it is also equally important to have a credible role in such a project. I have been asked whether I`m just going to be an ornament in any of my Khan films. Well I can say that — Salman is holding the fort; but my role has credibility. Kabir will never write a candy floss role for his heroine.”
However, she does admit that she can’t be like the three biggies. She said, “As for the Khans — I don`t think anyone can be them. Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman are phenomenon. To achieve that magnitude of popularity and remain heartthrobs for over two decades is not an easy feat.”
