Katrina Kaif on playing a negative role
Speaking to Pinkvilla, the actress shared, “The person that you are in your 20s is not going to be the same person you are in your 30s. With experiences you change, you grow, you evolve as a person, and so naturally your choices are going to slightly start reflecting that change, and that's going to be reflected in your work as well. Because at the end of the day, as an actor, a lot of it is about self expression. So I wouldn't even call it freedom, I would like to call it that confidence - the confidence to make choices that you feel are true for you."
When asked if this mindset will let her choose different characters in future, to this, the actress added that as a person one is changing continuosly. Having said that there are some things that are not necessarily connected to a person, but are simply your desires. "Like for me, I would really love to play a negative character, but someone who we know the reason for being that. You know, not just negative without reason, someone we know, this is the reason they become that way," the actress concluded.
