Katrina Kaif sizzles in the December issue of Vogue Magazine!

Feature

Katrina Kaif is the right description of the phrase: beauty with brains. Although, the diva is known to be a person of a few words but it doesn't mean that she isn't interesting when it comes to her life and career. She's been a huge part of the film industry for the last fifteen years and since then the model-turned-ingénue has worked in over 40 movies.

Kaif is this month's Vogue girl and this cover story brings us everything that we never knew about her! From portraying an innocent English rose to tough, ball-busting ISI agent, she's surely come a long way from being dubbed over to acting the Hindi language.

Her casual meet-cutes have led to sensational headlines and her relationships have often made more news than her body of work. And she’s the first to acknowledge it: “Oftentimes, throughout my career there’s been such prominent talk about the friendships or relationships I’ve had in my life, so that when you speak or when you’re spoken about in the media it’s in the context of another person and with another person.

Like how every human being feels after a break-up, this has been a period of unravelling and introspection for Kaif. “What human nature does is that when we have something, or someone, to focus on, we can also shift a lot of our attention there, so we are not really forced to look at ourselves in any great perspective. We’re able to kind of shift a lot of responsibility—on decisions, for happiness, for entertainment and motivation. So now, when the sole burden of your life, what you’re doing, and your state of mind is on your shoulders because there’s nothing to distract you, that is a very intense time.”

The last two years have been intense for Kaif, she's made it out in style and with a new-grit. “It’s probably one of the first times in my life where I really had only myself to focus on. And when you focus on yourself, often, the first thing you realise is that you don’t really know yourself. It’s like a period of not knowing, a period of being uncomfortable because you’re seeing yourself in your raw form without embellishments and then accepting that you don’t really know who you are," she said.

“I now see it as a blessing because I was able to recognise my patterns, thought processes and things that I had been so sure of my whole life. I could see them from a whole different perspective," she added.

Talking about her career and more importantly, how does one build a durable career that sees her in not one but three releases with the three Khans and Big B (Thugs Of Hindostan, Zero, Bharat)? She said, “In terms of the work I’m doing, especially this year, it has been wonderful. Because I’m really enjoying the process of creating. It began with Aanand L Rai’s Zero, and then with Bharat—even though it came to me out of the blue, the process has been wonderful. I’ve enjoyed learning, and I feel incredibly happy at work when I feel like I’m learning something new.”

Now, she can confidently say, “It’s not about proving a point—such a sufficient time has passed, and you know you’ve sustained your career for so long, which means something. But I definitely feel it, now more than ever, on the level of fulfilment.”

While signing off, Kaif left on a happy note and said, “I’m in a good state of mind—I want to learn from people’s experiences, imbibe knowledge from life. There are a million things I want to express, a million things I want to do, but I have no clue what’s going to happen, and what I’m going to do. If you know what the future holds for me, just call me.”
