Surprisingly, or perhaps not so surprisingly, Katrina’s change of stance has come during her press interactions to promote Yuvvraaj, the first film to pair Salman and Katrina romantically. The film releases in theatres Friday, November 21.
Here are some illustrative excerpts from an interview published in Mid Day.
Not many of Salman’s ex-girlfriends have managed to rise out of his shadow. You are the only exception, no?
“All I want to say to that is, write it on a postcard and send it to Salman. So he is aware.”
No denying that she is Salman’s girlfriend here!
You must be the only non-Hindi speaking actress in film history who charges three crores a film. How does it feel?
“I love it. I think it’s great. (laughs) I think when the unexpected happens, that is the magic of life. English is my first language but I have to say I have worked very hard on my Hindi.”
No denying her Rs 3 crore paycheck this time!
Your reaction to being called a glamour doll?
“I’ve realized that there is need to go beyond the glamour doll roles. I’m still going to do them. I love them, I’m young and if I can’t do them now, I definitely can’t do them when I am 35. But there’s also a desire within me as an actress to do different roles.”
Katrina hasn’t just stopped playing coy, she is now displaying confidence and some aggression.
“Now in 2009, I am doing performance-oriented films. There is a Raj Kumar Santoshi film, a Yash Raj film and a Prakash Jha film, all of them are strong characters which will get noticed. I will be very disappointed if I am not nominated for any role in 2009,” she says!
