She battled Hindi diction woes and the 'outsider' tag to win over Bollywood audiences and has worked with top-notch stars and filmmakers in her over decade-long acting career. Model-turned-actress Katrina Kaif says the industry only has space for those who are passionate about their craft - age notwithstanding.
Bollywood's most talked about rumoured couple Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif have earlier worked in films, where the audience has appreciated their on screen chemistry. Ever since it was announced that Anurag Basu's 'Jagga Jasoos' will star these two in the lead, anxiety levels reached a new high among cine buffs.
Anurag Basu, whose last film, the highly acclaimed and successful `Barfi!` came two years ago, won`t have any release this year. His `Jagga Jasoos` is being shot at a slackened pace, while his other projects are on hold till this one project finishes.
Among the three major sleuth films that were announced last year, it is Vidya Balan`s `Bobby Jasoos` that is being presented to the audience first and the actress is glad to be leading the race to the theatres.
Katrina Kaif, the actress who worked hard to earn the number spot in Bollywood, has often been regarded as somebody who refrains from speaking with the media. According to a leading daily, the `chikni chameli` of B-Town, who is currently shooting in Cape Town with rumoured boy friend Ranbir Kapoor avoided the media during a session that had been specifically scheduled in the city.
Vidya Balan is not concerned about the horde of detective films being made currently like "Jagga Jasoos" and "Byomkesh Bakshi". The actress says that her film "Bobby Jasoos" has something more to offer.
The rising superstar Ranbir Kapoor, who is taking no chance after his movie ‘Besharam’ failed to create much ripples at the Box-Office, has reportedly turned down a film offer with the Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan.
