Move over Aishwarya Rai Bachchan! Katrina Kaif could be the new number one actress in Bollywood. Her debut film Boom, in which she stars opposite Amitabh Bachchan, bombed and she was quickly written off, especially as she did not know Hindi.
But acquiring high-profile boyfriend Salman Khan was proved the turning point in her rapid rise to fame. But then one can't play down the fact that the British Asian Kaif’s last five films (Namastey London, Partner, Welcome, Race, Singh is Kinng) have all been blockbusters. The turn around has come as a surprise as her voice has been dubbed in all her movies and critics have consistently found her acting and dancing skills wanting.
Is this the ultimate triumph of mediocrity over real talent in beauty-obsessed Bollywood? Kaif herself is surprised at her success: “It is humbling. I am one of the few actors who have been given a second chance in this industry. I am extremely proud of all my films.”
