Bollywood actor Katrina Kaif talked about her evolution as an actor at the India Today Conclave Mumbai 2019. She shared a few experiences on how to have confidence in one and the importance of a family. She also talked about the importance of content and following one’s instincts. She called her dear friend Salman Khan a solid person.
# The film ‘Bharat’ reaffirmed her faith that whatever she does she has to do it from inside.
# Kaif admitted that ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ was a mistake but she thought it would be a little fun. She asserted that if one does not match expectations that is a fall.
# She said one cannot be sensitive and take things personally in case of failures. One has to be strong even if we all are human beings and there are emotions attached with them.
# She said she learned the very first things in film industry that the actors should make assistant directors their friends. She experienced the importance of this friendship during the shooting of a film where the director was not really impressed with her work at first place.
# Kaif said content is a key in the film today in the age of web series. The audience has a lot of exposure today. They expect high quality. The filmmakers have to be on that level of storytelling. The key is to find what suits one.
# She said relationship is the biggest learning. It shows your strength and weakness. She said she is always being a family person. She believes in marriage. She believes that family is unbreakable bond.
# She said one has to be continuously disciplined to be fit. She said she would prefer chicken over pizza. She said one should choose physique which suits him.
# She said acting is a tough job and a lot of hard work is involved in it. One cannot have the option of failure.
# She said she did not believe in arriving in the industry as it is only a journey and not the destination. She, however, said that she enjoyed the process of films after the film ‘Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani’.
“We have a responsibility to the audience. Every film is a learning process.”
“Salman Khan is a solid person. He is there when you need him. When he is there he supports you.”
“I have been asking Zoya (Akhtar) to do a sequel of ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’. I think the sequel could be on a balance of work and life. I hope she makes it.”
“I don’t think anyone can say he/she has arrived. It is a journey not a destination. If it is nowhere to go then it is an end. You have to give a lot to yourself.”
