Is Alia a Friend or Competition for Katrina?
Industry is full of rounds about Alia’s and Katrina’s friendship. They have been witnessed together at several events and parties. Katrina Kaif is currently shooting for Anand L Rai’s film Zero alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma. 2017 was a great year for Katrina as her movie Tiger Zinda was a blockbuster bagging over 300 Crores. Katrina recently completed 15 years in Bollywood and while looking back at her journey from a newbie to being an established Bollywood star, the actress got candid about how she has now found a safe haven for herself in the Industry.
While talking about if Alia’s presence in the industry makes her feel threatened, the actress told a leading daily, “I feel proud of the work that Alia is doing. Honestly, I don’t know others very well. Are there movie roles and maybe a few endorsements that are going to Alia now, for which I would have been the first choice? 100 percent. And is that the way things work or the way things should work? Yes, they should. She is 22 and I am not. You must accept the fact that life is constantly moving. Every day, we are moving forward. I am not 21; does that take away from me? Do I feel threatened by it? Not at all! It’s the process of life and we have to embrace a new place now. And I hope there are new and exciting things for me to do. I hope film-makers see this phase or the person that I am today. And I hope they get excited to make spaces for me in my current capacity in their films.”
From hardly being able to shake a being a newbie, to making the industry dance on her tunes, Katrina has surely come a long way and her journey is a proof enough!
