If there is one actor who has truly shown a remarkable transformation as a performer in the Bollywood film industry, it is Katrina Kaif. The actor has evolved from a newbie struggling to answer her staunch critics to a confident and determined artiste. With every film Katrina, pushed herself to broaden her horizons. The sharp critics were quick to point out her struggle when it came to emoting but nobody could deny her hard work. It is this charm of Katrina Kaif that soon earned her the spot of one of the most bankable and successful actors of the film industry.
But do you know that Katrina made her debut in Bollywood with the 2003 film, Boom? The film was directed by Kaizad Gustad and also starred stellar names like Amitabh Bachchan, Jackie Shroff and Gulshan Grover in lead roles. Katrina played a model in the film who gets embroiled in the nasty clutches of the underworld. The film, however, proved to be a failure at the box office and was also slammed by the critics. Katrina's performance in the film also received several brickbats. Reportedly Katrina Kaif has spoken in an interview about all the criticism she had received for Boom.
Katrina Kaif said, "I don't count Boom among important happenings in my life. When I signed this film, I didn't know much about India and its film audience." Many filmmakers were hesitant to cast Katrina in their film due to the debacle of her debut film and her poor Hindi speaking skills. But the actor soon signed her second film which was the Telugu film, Malliswari. The film proved to be a commercial hit. But Katrina Kaif's first breakthrough endeavour in Bollywood was with the film, Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya? where she starred opposite Salman Khan. The David Dhawan directorial film was a huge box office success. Since then, there was no looking back for the actor. She went on to star in many commercially successful films.
Today, Katrina has emerged as a creatively satisfied actor as she was praised for her performance in films like Bharat and Zero. Katrina played an alcoholic actress, Babita Kumari in Zero and critics lauded her act. She essayed the free-spirited Kumud Raina in Bharat where her performance along with the on-screen chemistry with Salman Khan received a lot of accolades. One of the critics wrote about her act in Zero and said, 'Katrina Kaif has delivered her best performance in #Zero. It's not about the length of the role but how much life 1 can infuse in the role that's important. Every single moment of Katrina's is terrific. Jilted lover, divine looking, sense of humour n drama, Katrina is on a Roll! #Zero.' Katrina Kaif will soon be seen in the film, Sooryanvanshi opposite Akshay Kumar. The Rohit Shetty directorial film will see the reunion of the two actors after many years.
