A few years back quite a few detractors had rejoiced when Katrina was signed for a serious affair like 'New York' coming from Yash Raj Films. They were sure that she would fail but Chopras had good belief in her. They played to her strengths and managed to hide her weaknesses. Now with 'Mere Brother Ki Dulhan' also finding brownie points coming it's way mainly due to Katrina's presence, they have wasted no time in rewarding her, what with a film each with Aamir Khan (Dhoom 3), Salman Khan (Ek Tha Tiger) and Shahrukh Khan (untitled film to be directed by Yash Chopra).
Call it a clichÃ© but the writing is pretty much clear on the wall - Katrina Kaif is easily Yash Chopra's newest blue eye girl, what with multiple films falling in her kitty at a rapid pace.
"Now this is something that is already making quite a few cynics hide their faces and look the other way because they had never imagined Katrina being summoned at least for those roles that required her to actually act," says a filmmaker on condition of anonymity.
As Katrina about being entrusted to deliver in quite a few biggies, especially her immediate next release 'Ek Tha Tiger' and she says, "See, we are trying our best. It is good to be shooting for the film and we have a good script in hand to work upon. As for the performance standing out then well, we have some amazing scenes, sequences and locations in 'Ek Tha Tiger' which I believe would help enhance the performance as well."
Aah, now if only Katrina could acknowledge herself a little more than being her diplomatic self, there may well have been yet another inclusion of a fiery actress in the world of Bollywood.
