Katrina Kaif, one of the most popular Bollywood actress have been in the Bollywood Industry for over 16 years. Katrina’s acting capabilities are unquestionable and as are her dancing capabilities. She was last seen in thugs of Hindustan with Aamir Khan.
Katrina Kaif will be next seen in Bharat with Salman Khan. Karan Johar recently in an interview said that- “I have no problem with like a girl dancing, that’s not an item number. An item song is when she is objectified and when there are men lusting for her like Chikni Chameli. I don’t think I would ever do that again.”.
Katrina certainly disagreed with the Karan Johar and replied on Kran’s statement- “I disagree with the word ‘item song’. I can only speak for me, and cannot comment for other girls, ladies, directors or producers. I can speak about my take on music and dancing. We can get into a debate for each lyric and exactly what it said!
For me, my idols in dancing are [late] Sridevi ji, Madhuri (Dixit Nene), Madonna and Beyonce. These are women… if you go see Beyonce in a concert tomorrow, how she represents herself, I don’t think they are objectifying women. They are expressing and empowering themselves.”
Katrina further adds- “If you feel you are being objectified by your choreographer and what you are doing in the song, then please, by all means, I really hope you never do that. Dance is a wonderful art form. If you are dancing to express yourself, that’s a beautiful thing. It’s not a wrong thing. Everything in life cannot be given… I feel sometimes when we are trying to make changes, everything starts getting piled up together.”
So Katrina Kaif certainly disagreed with what Karan said. The world knows how good dancer Katrina is. And no doubt on his acting. But it is surprising to know that many Bollywood actresses like Deepika and Anushka are becoming Producers but Katrina jumped into the production line over a decade ago. Katrina recently talked about this and said- “There are people right now… I spoke about getting into production 8-10 years ago, it just never happened.” Prodded on what held her back, she adds, “In life, you have these ideas. Nothing held me back. I got caught up with different aspects in different areas of my own life. I don’t know if it will happen again, but I would like to, if ever.”
Katrina when questioned further revealed that she even has a story planned to produce- “It will definitely be a co-production of some sort. About two strong female characters, in a larger set-up. Size doesn’t matter, the story does. It will be a cinematic experience for an audience to see something like that. Nothing to preach or bore the audience. We will see where we go with that…”- said Katrina.
Katrina has been in the Bollywood industry for a long now and is still in demand, she says on this- “Sometimes I feel it has been long, and sometimes, not long at all. Someone the other day said ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan was six years ago’, to me it feels two and a half maybe. It doesn’t feel like years. Time just flies. I feel myself to be really fortunate. Without getting into too many details, all my experiences have taught me. Some have been good, some not so good. I’ve gone through some interesting times and phases.”
Katrina ill be next seen in Bharata. Bharat will be starring Salman Khan other than Katrina Kaif.
