Katrina Kaif Profile

Published at 8:12 AM in ,

Birthday: 16 July, 1984 in Hong Kong. She was raised in Hawaii and later moved to her mother’s country England. She grew up in 18 countries! Her real name is Katrina Thorquette. She got renamed somewhere on her way to the silver screen!

It is said that her father is a Kashmiri Muslim while her mother is an English lady. Her parents separated when she was very young. She has seven siblings. Favorite Indian food is dahi and rice. Her favourite beverage is well-made black coffee. Comfort food — sushi and cereals. Kat hates stuffed toys as they’re too cutesy and girlie. She wakes up at 6 a.m. but doesn’t switch on her phone for some hours. Never, ever, misses her swimming and yoga!

She makes it a point to visit Siddhivinayak Temple, Mount Mary Church and Ajmer Sharif Dargah before the release of her films. The star is afraid of the dark and petrified of insects. She doesn’t cry very easily; yet there are times when she cries for days on end! At home, she lounges around in an old pair of shorts.

Debut Film: Kaizad Gustad’s Boom (2003).

Won the British-Indian Actor award for the Zee Cine Awards (2008), Won the Stardust Breakthrough Performance Award (Female) for Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya? (2005/2006). She was discovered at age 14 as a model for a jewellery campaign. She continues modelling in England and even walked the London Fashion Week. Kaif's London modeling work led to her discovery by London-based filmmaker Kaizad Gustad who gave her a part in his film Boom (2003). She moved to Mumbai and was offered a number of modeling assignments.
However, filmmakers were initially hesitant to sign her because she could not speak Hindi.

Kaif saw success with the 2005 film Sarkar where she played the bit part of Abhishek Bachchan’s girlfriend. Her next release, Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya (2005), where she was paired opposite SalmanKhan too was a great success. She has also worked for photographer Atul Kasbekar and did commercials for Fevicol, Lakme and Veet among others. She was chosen as the face of the year for the Lakme India Fashion Week (2005). She is the most photographed woman in India as well as the most searched Bollywood celebrity as per Google's 2008 data. She has been active in various charities and often visits orphanages and hospitals. She has been voted at the No. 1 spot in FHM India's 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll.

Awards-
Sabsey Favourite Heroin Kaun Award (2008), British Indian Actor Award(2008)- Zee cine Awards, Style icon (2008)- IIFA, Stardust Breakthrough Performance Award (2006)- Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya
Kaif is the model for Mattel's Bollywood Barbie.

She shares a great onscreen chemistry with Akshay Kumar with whom she has done a number of films and almost all have been a hit. She is currently dating Salman Khan.
Undoubtedly she is one of the best in the film industry today with a sexy body to match. And also that she has been cast correctly in most of her films as by and large her roles have been fairly undemanding requiring her to look good, wear short dresses, dance a bit and smile sweetly!
