She battled Hindi diction woes and the ‘outsider’ tag to win over Bollywood audiences and has worked with top-notch stars and filmmakers in her over decade-long acting career. Model-turned-actress Katrina Kaif says the industry only has space for those who are passionate about their craft – age notwithstanding.
Facing the arclights might seem like a cakewalk for many but Katrina, who at one point in her career, gave six back-to-back hits, doesn’t find it easy.
“It’s a hard industry to work in. It’s not easy on a person to be sometimes 14 to 15 hours on the sets. Sometimes, you don’t have a lunch or dinner break. It’s taxing on a person. You have to be passionate about making movies. So, till the time you are passionate about it, there is space for you in the industry,” Katrina said.
At 31, she has films like ‘Jagga Jasoos’ and ‘Fitoor’ in her kitty.
She doesn’t see age as limitation in the field. Citing examples of actresses like Madhuri Dixit and Sridevi, who came back to films after becoming mothers, Katrina said that it’s not age that decides a woman’s fate in showbiz.
