Personal Quotes

Life is full of happiness and tears, be strong and have faith.

I want a man I can keep for myself. I wouldn't ever share my man with anyone else.

I am not a home breaker and I can never be. I haven't been brought up to create havoc in other people's homes.

If I found out that my man is unfaithful, there'd be no tears, no shor-sharaba, I'd just slaughter him.

Men are gutless. Why can't they own up to the women they love?

A lot of guys try to mingle with me because of who I am. If I encounter a guy with a clean heart, I will go by my instincts. I guess my man won't be from the film industry.

I am a hell raiser. I do my own thing. And I believe what I do is the right thing.

I wouldn't be able to turn a blind eye to my husband activities like other star wives. I will be screaming down this throat, demanding an account of every minute of his. So you see an actor won't be good for my peace of mind.

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).

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.
