									Katrina Kaif
Katrina Kaif (born Katrina Turquotte on 16 July 1984)

is a British Indian actress and former model who appears in Indian films,
mainly in the Hindi film industry.[3][4] She has also appeared in Telugu
and Malayalam films. Being a British citizen, she works in India on an
employment visa.

Kaif made her acting debut in 2003 with Kaizad Gustad's box office bomb
Boom. In 2007, she earned commercial success with Vipul Shah's
Namastey London and later earned public recognition for playing leading
roles in such male-centric films as Partner (2007), Race (2007) and Singh
Is Kinng (2008). Kaif subsequently played more prominent roles in such
films as New York (2009), Rajneeti (2010) and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
(2011).Despite earning mixed reviews from critics for her acting prowess,
Kaif has emerged as a commercially successful actress of Hindi cinema.

Kaif was born in Hong Kong, to an English mother, Susanna Turquotte,
and an Indian father. Her parents divorced when she was very young.
Kaif once stated, "My dad, unfortunately, and not out of choice, has had
no influence on our upbringing, on our religious or social or moral
bearings." When she came to India, she changed her surname to Kaif,
because it was Indian in origin and easier to pronounce.Furthermore, her
first film Boom's producer, Ayesha Shroff has maintained that the actress'
original name is Katrina Turquotte. She also claims that they gave her the
Kashmiri father and also the surname kaif after cricketer, Mohammad
Kaif as he was on top at that time. She adds that they also had thought her
naming Katrina Kazi. From Hong Kong, she and her family moved to
China, then to Japan. From there she went to France when she was 8, and
thereafter lived for a few months at a time in Switzerland, Poland,
Germany, Belgium, and other European countries.Then she moved with
her family to Hawaii, and eventually to her mother's home country of
England. Although it is often assumed that Kaif is from London, she lived
there only for three years before finally moving to Mumbai.

Kaif has been to various religious places in India,including Hindu, Sikh
and Islamic places of worship. She has been seen worshipping at
Siddhivinayak temple, Hindu temples in Haridwar, Shirdi, Amritsar's
Golden temple and Ajmer Sharif dargah

In 2005, Kaif made a cameo in Ram Gopal Verma's drama Sarkar, as
Abhishek Bachchan's girlfriend. The same year, she landed her first major
role in David Dhawan's adaptation of Cactus Flower, Maine Pyaar Kyun
Kiya, where she was paired opposite Salman Khan. The film also featured
Sushmita Sen, Arshad Warsi, Isha Koppikar and Sohail Khan in leading
roles. Upon release, the film became a moderate success with Taran
Adarsh, a prominent film critic, mentioning Kaif as a "complete
revelation".The following year, she was paired opposite Akshay Kumar
for the first time (she subsequently appeared alongside Kumar in a
number of successful films throughout her career) in Raj Kanwar's box-
office flop Humko Deewana Kar Gaye. However, for her portrayal of Jia A.
Yashvardhan, Adarsh wrote, "Taking giant strides as an actor, Katrina is,
without doubt, the star of the show. It's her magnetic presence and
dependable performance that you carry home once the show has ended."
The film has often been hailed as the major turnaround for the better in
her career due to her performance

In 2007, Kaif appeared in four films, all of which were successful at the
box office. Her first release was Vipul Shah's romantic-comedy Namastey
London. Kaif portrayed the character of a British Indian girl named
Jasmeet "Jazz" Malhotra, alongside Rishi Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and
Clive Standen. Upon its release, the film became a major hit, with Nikhat
Kazmi, of the The Times Of India praising the chemistry between the
leading couple. She next played a supporting role in Anil Sharma's
melodrama Apne. Featuring Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol,
Kirron Kher and Shilpa Shetty, the film was a box-office hit.[24] Her next
release was David Dhawan's unofficial remake of Hitch, Partner, where
she starred alongside Salman Khan, Govinda, and Lara Dutta. Her final
film of 2007, Welcome, directed by Anees Bazmee and co-starring Akshay
Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Anil Kapoor, was declared a blockbuster in
India, despite negative reviews from critics.

Her first release of 2008 was Abbas-Mustan's action-thriller Race; she
played Saif Ali Khan's secretary, Sophia, who is secretly in love with his
hostile stepbrother (played by Akshay Khanna). The film also featured
Anil Kapoor, Bipasha Basu and Sameera Reddy in leading roles. Despite
its success, Kazmi wrote, "Katrina is too pale as the blousy secretary who
comes into her own only when she gets seductive with a Touch me, kiss me
tenor. "
Kaif was next seen in Anees Bazmee's action comedy Singh Is Kinng,
portraying Akshay Kumar's love interest and Ranvir Shorey's fiancée.
After its release, the film was declared a blockbuster, making it Kaif's sixth
consecutive success at the box office. The movie also emerged as the third
highest grossing film of 2008. Kaif's final release of the year, Subhash
Ghai's Yuvvraaj, was a commercial failure, but its script made its way into
the Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences for artistic
merit, original screenplay with a substance, and the film as a whole.

In 2009, she featured in Kabir Khan's terrorism drama New York, with
John Abraham and Neil Nitin Mukesh. It was a critical and commercial
success in both India and overseas.Kaif's performance was highly praised:
Taran Adarsh wrote, "Katrina gives you the biggest surprise. Known for
her glamour roles, Katrina proves that she can deliver if the director and
writer offer her a role of substance. She's outstanding. In fact, people will
see a new, different Katrina this time."For her performance, Kaif received
her first Filmfare nomination in the Best Actress category.[32] She next
had a cameo in the star-studded action-thriller Blue, popularly known as
India's first underwater thriller, with Akshay Kumar and Zayed
Khan.However, it was declared a flop. In November 2009, she appeared
along with Ranbir Kapoor, in Rajkumar Santoshi's blockbuster comedy
Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, as Jennifer Pinto. Critics mostly praised her
fresh chemistry with Kapoor rather than her performance as a whole.Her
final release that year was Priyadarshan's star-studded De Dana Dan
with Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal and Neha Dhupia. The
film had a promising opening, although dropped in collections throughout
the following days. Despite this, the film was a moderate commercial
success, receiving an "above average" status at the domestic box office by
Box Office India
