Katrina Kaif is an English actress who works in Hindi films. Born in Hong Kong, she and her family lived in several countries before she moved to London. She received her first modeling assignment as a teenager and later pursued a career as a fashion model. At a fashion show in London, filmmaker Kaizad Gustad spotted her and decided to cast her in ‘Boom’ in 2003, a critical and commercial failure. While filming in India, she received modelling assignments and established a successful modelling career. However, filmmakers were hesitant to cast her due to her poor command of Hindi. After appearing in the Telugu film, ‘Malliswari’ in 2004, she earned commercial success in Bollywood with the romantic comedies ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya ?’ in 2005 and ‘Namastey London’ in 2007. She followed with a series of box-office hits, but was criticised for her acting, repetitive roles and inclination to male-dominated films.
Her performance in the terrorism drama ‘New York’ in 2009 was better received, earning her a Filmfare Award for Best Actress nomination. After roles in ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’ in 2009, ‘Raajneeti’ in 2010 and ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ in 2011, she received her second Filmfare nomination for her performance in ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ in 2011. Her highest-grossing films came with the spy thriller ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ in 2012 and its 2017 sequel, and the action thriller ‘Dhoom 3’ in 2013, all of which rank among the highest-grossing Indian films of all time. In addition to acting, she is involved with her mother’s charity and participates in stage shows. She is guarded about her personal life, which is a subject of media scrutiny, as is her background.
At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Katrina Kaif movie? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Katrina Kaif films scheduled to release in 2018 and 2019. We can only hope that the latest Katrina Kaif movies would be as good as some of her recent ones.
