Katrina Kaif excited to take up action genre
Katrina Kaif has usually done love stories but the actress says she is looking forward to go beyond her romantic image with action films "Dhoom 3" and "Bang Bang"
The two films, starring Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan, involve hardcore action and Katrina herself will be seen performing some dare devil stunts.
'Bang Bang' is inspired by Hollywood film 'Knight and Day' but we have re-done the story to suit Indian audience. It is an action comedy and I haven't done anything like this in a long time. "All my previous movies have more or less been love stories.
This also has a love angle but with a twist. It is a huge change and I am really excited about it," she told PTI. Katrina is currently busy filming Aamir Khan starrer "Dhoom 3" in Switzerland. "We are still shooting... Still have a lot of work to do but it is shaping up well. It is a very glamorous and bold role at the same time. I am having a good time working with Aamir. He is a wonderful actor, extremely supportive."
The "Singh Is Kinng" star recently joined the list of actresses who have worked with the top three Khan's (Salman, Shah Rukh and Aamir) of the industry. Though she feels lucky to have worked with the three superstars, Katrina says beyond a point name does not matter more than the work she is being offered.
"The big deal is they are legends and have been in the industry for the longest time... I am very fortunate to have got an opportunity of working will all three. It has been a learning and informative experience but beyond that I think it is not whom you work with but the kind of movies you do and what are you interests. What matters to me is the script and the director I am working with," she said. Coming from a non-filmy background and considering her non-fluency in Hindi, Katrina has achieved a lot by delivering hits like "New York", "Raajneeti", "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara", "Bodyguard", "Ek Tha Tiger" and "Jab Tak Hai Jaan".
Besides movies, she is also a part of many endorsements. She recently shot for an all new campaign for Mango drink Slice, titled the Slice taste challenge.
Katrina returns to her seductive look in the commercial, which she feels has a very poetic feel to it. "Slice has been one of my best associations.
When they started, their ideas just clicked with me. I believe if the base of the project is strong be it movies or ads, half of the work is already done. "Also what I like is the sensual and visually appealing look of the ad. The quality is so poetic and it has a story with a message.
All of this makes the journey of being with them more special and exciting," she added. Commenting on the recent reports about her younger sister joining the film industry, Katrina said, "Isabelle is currently in LA completing her acting course. She is happy there and has no plans of coming to Bollywood as of now. So as and when she completes her course and if she wants to come she can come."
