When we heard that Katrina Kaif has taken to the beaches of Phuket like a fish takes to water, we immediately pictured her in an Ursula Andress avatar from the iconic ’60s Bond film, Dr No. But the actor’s motive behind hitting the beach has been to try out the watersports on offer, and get in
shape for action thriller, Dhoom 3.
With three big films lined up one after the other (Ek Tha Tiger opposite Salman Khan, Dhoom 3 opposite Aamir Khan, and a Yash Raj project with Shah Rukh Khan), Katrina is, perhaps, at her busiest. So, she’s making the most of her time in Thailand, where she is currently shooting for Ek Tha Tiger.
An insider tells us that Kat, who learnt to scuba dive to play a diving instructor in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011), has been brushing up on her skills in Phuket. She is also trying her hand at other activities the beach town has to offer. The source says, “At this time of the year, there are great adventure sport options such as sea kayaking and snorkelling in Phuket. Katrina enjoys them all, so she goes off to the beach by herself after pack-up.”
The insider adds, “Watersports help her relax, and serve as a workout.” The actor will soon leave for a 40-day shoot schedule in London for the Yash Raj film. Then, she will begin Dhoom 3, for which she will need to be at her fittest. So, a little bit of watersports seems to be just what the doctor ordered. The actor herself was unavailable for comment.
