GET A HUGE POSTER OF KATRINA KAIF
Kaizad Gustaad discoverd Katerina Kaif and brought her to India to star in his movie Boom (2003). Kaizad was a noted short story writer, but one cannot excel in all genres of art. Katerina was all of 17 and cute as a button. It was almost a crime to cast someone like that in a movie like this. Newcomers have had nightmares about having debuts like this. It could have finished off lesser mortals. But our Kat came from tougher stock. She had been modelling since she was 14. She was born (16 July 1984) in London, brought up in Hawaii and London and not the kind to be cowed down by one resounding failure. Besides, Kaizad's mistake could not harm this pretty face.
Kat recognised that her biggest hurdle to a career in hindi films was her faulty diction. Kat waited, took lessons in Hindi, stayed on in Mumbai, and took on various modelling assignments. She modelled for LG, Veet, Lakme and various other premium brands. Her innocent face, and fabulous body was an instant hit. In 2005 she came out again with a small role in the successful Sarkar. Co-starring with Abhishek, she was able to register a positive presence in movies at last.
