Katrina Kaif: I am extremely happy and satisfied with the kind of films I am doing

Katrina Kaif says she's happy and content with the kind of films she is doing today.

She has been a part of some of Bollywood's biggest hits like "Namastey London", "Dhoom 3" and "Ek Tha Tiger", but her last few films, including "Baar Baar Dekho" and "Jagga Jasoos", didn't get an impressive response at the box office. But actress Katrina Kaif says she is "extremely happy and satisfied with the kind of films" she is doing.

"I really enjoy my work," the actress, told IANS when asked if she misses finding some free time amidst so many films and endorsement deals.

"I am very driven and focused on what I want to do. I am extremely happy and satisfied with the kind of films I am doing, getting to work with people who I enjoy working with, learning from new people. It is the same with brands too. It's not just about showing up on sets but being a part of the behind-the-scenes interactions as well. So, I enjoy my job," added the actress.

The actress made her film debut in the 2003 erotic heist film "Boom", which bombed at the box office. Her initial success in Bollywood happened when she appeared opposite Salman Khan in David Dhawan's romantic comedy "Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya?" and her success story continued with films like "Partner", "Welcome", "Race" and "Singh Is Kinng".

However, her previous few films didn't do great business at the box office in spite of being creative and different in terms of storyline.

But the actress is positive.

"With every film, you try and make sure that you are learning. And if there is ever a point when you are distracted, maybe you question yourself -- 'Why? What is happening here? Where am I going wrong? How do I push myself?'," said the 34-year-old.

She said everyone goes through a phase where they are extremely inspired and then there are times when they feel stagnant.

"(But the idea is to) keep pushing yourself. Try and reinvent and make sure you are doing something new."

Katrina has played characters that many girls relate with in real life, but is there any dream role that she wants to portray on the big screen?

"For me, every script is a new journey and when the script comes to you, you get excited by that vision. It's something that has to come on its own."

It's not just films

 but the actress is also grabbing eyeballs for her friendship with contemporaries -- whether it is sharing a comfortable moment with Anushka Sharma at filmmaker Karan Johar's chat show or posting photographs of a gym session with Alia Bhatt.

Asked if the concept of rivalry and catfights is passe in Bollywood, she said: "Actors have always been like that. There are always some people with whom you get along really well, while there are some you don't know so well. It's more visible and open now because of the social media.

"We are more accessible to media (now) but friendships have always been there."

The actress is currently busy shooting for "Tiger Zinda Hai" and "Thugs of Hindustan". However, she refused to comment on the status of her films.

Perfect Attitude katrina. 14 years in an industry where actress life is expected to be max of 10 years and you are still an A lister. At a point of career you were the most beautiful and hottest actress of bollywood with sky touching stardom and popularity. Every rise has a fall and every superstar would fade away one day. Kudos to you for choosibg bravely films like phantom, bbd which are unique for Indian cinena. Hopefully you stay away from films like jagga jasoos and ranbir. I am eagerly waiting for Tiger zinda hai and zoya muah :)

I like her. Atleast she is grateful. Unlike some, who are always bitter

Everybody has right to chose what ever the scripts that feels right for them. My argument is after 15 long years in the industry Katrina can not call those eye candy roles as challenging and pushing her self to do more as she has done same thing at the beginning of her career. As an actress on anybody who commits to learn will definitely do learn from the process, most importantly one must know what you aiming to learn as well. I can not even see the same old role she can play convincingly.

Love u katrina. U r the best.

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Ughh is she seriously still around and relevant !

Really? Are you?

She cannot do wat a Vidya can. And even Vidya cannot do wat she can. There is place for everyone n every type of film in the industry. Everyone is making the best of watever opportunity that comes their way. Why put down others just to make your favorite look good.

She grew up in a broken family somewhere in UK, never had a father. Came to a foreign country, no knowledge and despite all the cultural shock, stuck around and made it big. She has never denied the contribution of Salman is her life. She has been lucky that people accepted her with all their heart. And most of her films became hit. And she was not that bad in Namaste London, Rajneeti, Ajab Prem ki Deewani. Nobody is expecting her to give Great acting performance. But, she is pretty good at wat she does. And pleasing to the eyes too. After Deepika, she is the biggest female Star who has mass appeal n who adds to eyeballs of a film. I repeat, a Star. Not an Actor. Salman is bad actor but you cannot deny he is biggest star.

She does not add ANY eyeballs to a movie, no movie of hers has worked without a Khan in it, item girl with Sallu uncle's grace is all that she is, no need to glorify that!

Rajneeti, ZNMD, Sarkar, Ajab Prem K Gazab Kahani, Namaste London are some of the films where there were no Khans. And there is nothing wrong if anyone works with Khans. Its an honor to work with those who ruled the industry for 2 decades

Rajneeti has Nana, arjun, manoj and ajay who are national award winners. kat was there for 20 mins with no expressions and terrible hindi. Ajab has story ,songs and RK, NL has akshay who is a hit machine. its not an hnour to be an eye candy in khan movies for 10 mins and doing item songs. she has no worth and star power of her own. she cant act and needs her EX BF to get movies. truth should be posted plz pv

"(But the idea is to) keep pushing yourself. Try and reinvent and make sure you are doing something new." I'm sorry but I see no re-inventions in her craft. doubling your gym hours and foraying into social media are not real talents. Katrina is not alone to be blamed, to give her plum roles like in BBD, Fitoor, Phantom when some other more able actress could benefit and add more value to the projects is unfortunate. And what reinvention and doing something new? She's back to being an eye candy in Khan films after her solo movies failed miserably!

Katrina has always been set in the films she did and she branched out, flopped, and went back to doing the kind of action masala films she's good at. Everyone has a place in this industry so stop being mean.

Look at the so called feminists pulling down another woman. Who are you 3-4 persons to point fingers at her? Just bcoz she doesnot keep projecting herself as a victim does not mean her story is less remarkable or hard. Atleast she never went after married men and never stalked? She had a public consensual relations. Salman cud not get work for his brothers and you think he cud get her so many films? Fact is she is a Star in her own Right, most of her films have worked at box office, her dances have been chartbusters and she is one of the most beautiful actresses onscreen (even if it is botox, so be it). She gets films bcoz even glamor is something nothing not all can pull off!

Look at hypocrites kat fans who always pull other women down specially Dp. Why u guys point fingers at others? Kat always projected herself as a victim oh i dont have a father i support my family etc etc. She went after comitted men and break other relationships. If salman couldn't get her so many films so why she ran towards him as soon as rk dumped her? And soon she gets 3 big films. She knew that she is nothing without salman. Her films lol her films tanked at the box office. Post pv

His brothers don't have obvious assets which Kat used to her advantage. Sallu uncle has hidden her shady past and made sure she gets into the right movies. Without his powerful backing and support aunty Kat is nothing.

People are really mean. Whether or not she can act, she has made it pretty big in an industry where she didn’t even know the language. As the someone below mentioned ‘the audience decides,’ and the audience is the one who went to watch her movies over and over again. She is aware she will never do movies like Piku, Queen, Neerja, NH10, Manikarnika or Padmavati. So she is happy with what she has. She will ride out the wave until she has no more work, until then she will mint the money that she can. People need to think this woman still gets paid more than Kalki, Richa, and possibly even Vidya. Why is that? Because someone feels she pulls in a bigger audience than those women WITH talent, so again if the audience would go and watch their movies than maybe they can get paid what they deserve. But fat chance that will.

Salman earns more than Nawaz. Why is she being singled out? There are all type of films which people watch. Intellectual people shud stick to lipstick in burkha movies. Rest of us are fine with Tiger Zinda Hai ones!

"I'm extremely happy with the money i'm making considering i don't have any real talent". There, fixed it for you.

Why nobody says the same about talentless Salman? Or Akshay who started acting only after 70 flops? Why only she is pointed out? She is good at action, dance and public adore her!

All thanks to my Suggadaddy

old uncle salman is ensuring she is still in the movie business and this old auntie kat with films in her kitty wants to talk thru her teeth

nice.. she is confident in the choices she made so thats good! and by the way, TZH looks extremely amazing so thats even better

Kangana to Katrina is an excellent transition.

Katrina is 100 times better. Strange, both their dialogue delivery suck. Even when Kangana is from India LOL

It's like she's trying to convince herself about her statement .

How many women can go to a foreign country, have no idea of the language, enter acting field and yet make it one of Top stars? This is wat she has done and she has every reason to feel proud of. And to people talking about Salman, he was neither married nor did she hide it. She is still grateful to him unlike those like Kangana who used, dumped n defamed married guy Aditya after tasting success. She may not be a terrific actress, but public love her and she adds star value to a film. Period.

If kat is still grateful to salman so wgy she cheated him and called him ANYONE and SOMEONE? Why she ignores him in his bad days? Why her fans called salman a criminal and a murderer , uncle celebrated his 5 yr of sentence? Kat is a user and nothing else. Many ppl go to foreign land without knowing the language , work hard and make it big without salman. Kat hasn't done anything unusual. Post pv plz its important fact.

The joke's on the Audience - Katrina is a smart businesswoman - got into the right circles and made tons of money - got to travel - of course she has had her share of heartbreak as well which is the case with everyone - at this point we all need to accept her for what she can offer and not expect miracles - "I am Ok and you are Ok"

LOOK AT THE PIC KAT AUNTY LOOKS ALL PLASTIC AND BOTOX. LOL AT HER FANS AND PR WHO CALL HER STUNNING AND BEAUTIFUL. POST THE TRUTH

katrina do you think people dont read the news? that this is baba adam zamana? that we dont know that fitoor and barbardeko floped and salman give you tzh? sweety dont be happy about your career.. its awkward.

pinkvilla please post ki je is comment ko. thank you

Wow! Why is everyone so mean? O_o If she is happy, then let her be. It’s not that she doesn’t deserve any compliments on her achievements. I’m proud of her that she is not giving up despite people talks bad about her. Shame on you

katrina when your career is over and you look back in your life then you see what we see and dear you wont be happy. bcz its itam nr career

the only actress who gets movie based on actor or directors charity. so yeh you should be happy lol

well at least somone is happy! lol after so many years even Anushka has ACHEAVED SO FREAKING much evendo no one likes her personality but bcz she can act. you dear still just tag alon in films

"Katrina has played characters that many girls relate with in real life, but is there any dream role that she wants to portray on the big screen?" Last time I checked I don't remember relating to a botox woman who pretended to be indian...okaay! Which of her films were relatable to anyone?

She always seems to be rambling so much in interviews. No wonder she gets called boring. Lol and of course she is happy with her films. She doesn't have to do much, gets paid lots, and gets a hit due to KHANS.

She talks such bs here. She hasn't learned from any film and she doesn't improve...how does she push herself? More working out, more botox, more item songs? Hardly anything to brag about. Anyway, we all know you are happy doing Khan films and being a show piece, as long as it's a hit, you are happy. The films would be a hit with or without her, so why she acts like she has any contribution is beyond me?

ok user katrina. You are always happy doing item songs and 5 mins roles in khan movies. Lol at your PR n fans who says kat is a hit machine.hahahahaha

Lol so she loves playing 10 mins roles in khan movies so she can get a hit film. Later claiming oh i have a biggest success ratio. Loser

Mujhse Shaadi karoge Katrina????

Women who look behenji and cannot pull off glamorous roles will always be jealous of her.

thanks for telling that katrina look behenji and cannot pull off glamorous roles will always be jealous of other actresses

Thanks for telling that kat look behenji and cannot pull off glamorous roles with no acting skills , terrible hindi and noting without her EX BF is jealous of all beautiful, successful actresses who can act and loved by all.
dare not to ignore it.

Hmm thats why kat who look behen ji n can't pull off glamorous roles neither she can act is jealous of everyone.

Does Katrina have a choice to say anything else. She getting any film offers itself is a miracle because her lack of acting abilities and no interest to improve in fourteen years is a shame. All thanks to Salman that she is getting her five min item role offers

thnaks to salman you got the film. if not you would deb a wash out by now!

With the talent she has or the lack of it, she had a good career. Of couse she is happy.

Oh but we are not satisfied. At the end of the day it’s the audience that makes or breaks you

Yeh luv u kat

Katrina admits finally that she can't act and happy beung an eye candy in big heroes movies.

Its a lie. You get what salman gives you dear.

hahahha yeah bcz that all you got itam lady or you know that you cant act so even getting there you are is alot right?

will nice that you are happy before retirement years now

Gorgeous Katerina

Love you Kat!
