Actor Katrina Kaif will have a busy date diary this year. Once she’s back from her London holiday with her mother and sisters, which she took to celebrate Christmas and bring in the New Year, she’ll report for the Ek Tha Tiger shoot. Alongside that, there will be meetings to discuss dates and other details of the Dostana sequel, top-lining Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham, announced in the last leg of 2011.
Then, before the January ends, she will start shooting with Shah Rukh Khan for Yash Chopra’s untitled romantic film that also features Anushka Sharma. “I really didn’t plan all of this,” beams Katrina, adding, “I took on my projects after hearing the scripts and liking the parts that each one offered. My dates were allotted accordingly.”
Towards April, the actor moves from SRK to Aamir Khan and the shoot of Dhoom 3, in which Katrina turns into the next Dhoom girl, for which, news is that she’ll not only have to chisel her body but also get into a swimsuit.
Bring this up, and she says, “I’ve not even discussed the costumes with the designers. And all these speculations have already begun. I think I’d let them be. People will know the truth when it’s time.”
Apart from working with three of the biggest Khans actors in the industry in a single calendar year, the actor will have two festive releases: Ek Tha Tiger on Eid and Yash Chopra’s film on Diwali. That’s a record that only actor Kareena Kapoor, with five Khans and two festive releases, has managed to match.
“It’s a dream to be cast in a film that Yashji is directing. In a way it brings me into the league of some of the most beautiful and iconic female actors we’ve had so far. Not everyone gets a chance to work with a legend like him,” Katrina states, adding, “But like I said, my dates were allotted to each project depending on the requirements. Beyond that, I don’t decide anything. That’s something that producers and other people involved with a movie decide.”
