Katrina Kaif is in a happy space right now when it comes to professional and personal life both. The actress plays a superstar in Aanand L Rai's next Zero which stars her alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma, her Jab Tak Hai Jaan co-stars. The actor spoke about her role Babita Kumari at length in an interview with Mumbai Mirror and why it was one of the most difficult ones for her. 

Katrina said that after a two weeks schedule, she did not feel like returning to the sets and go into the deeply sad place again. "The work was inspiring and challenging, but personally it was not a fun place to go to. After a 10-day or a two-week schedule, we’d take a break, and when I got back to the set, I’d confess to Aanand sir that I didn’t want to go back to the deeply sad space where Babita’s obnoxious behaviour stemming from. He’d nod, “I know mere bachche, but kar na.""

She then spoke about how Aanand was also supporting them to give their best. When asked if in real life, she has seen herself in that space, how would she react. Katrina added, "I think all of us have. But whenever I was going through tough times, and there have been quite a few, I think of maybe a mother of four who is going through a messy divorce and still has to go to work where she won’t be pampered like us, and that has helped me carry on, knowing I’m not alone."


I never liked her because of the fact, how little she gives to movies and how much fame she got. But seeing her interviews, she comes across as a no non-sense person who only minds her business.

LOL. we will have to wait and see what "deep" emotions she's referring to when the movie comes out. I highly doubt she has ever prepared for ANY role other than the ones that require dancing/learning steps.

clearly she won't have much emotions or dialogues in this movie . It must be about some anglicised character she has to dress up prettily and look expresisonless which she can do well.

Never been a fan of Katrina but her look in zero and her interviews are slowly pulling me in. Seems like she finally got a role that is real. Her interviews sound so mature and thoughtful and her zany chemistry with Anushka calls for a project with just the two of them.

When will she stop talking about how this break up effected her?

She's not even talking about her breakup.. She's talking about her sad or unhappy character of Babita Kumari

wow so honest! finally a real site to her. lovet it and just became a fan

This breakup has taken a toll on her!!

kat is in bait to hijack others films and success. Zero is out and ut SRK Anushka movie. Makers are promoting it as theirs. Not as kat movie. She has only 2 item songs and 4 scenes which will be ruined by her terrible acting and hindi.

Boring long answers which have nothing to do with the question asked.

Katrina cantt act no matter what. She will be the weakest in the film in her 2 mins of role.
