When Katrina Kaif wanted to quit Bollywood and thought her 'my life is over'
Katrina Kaif on Karan Johar's chat show Koffee With Karan spoke about feeling terrified after watching her film Namastey London and how she wanted to quit Bollywood.
Today is Katrina Kaif's birthday, and she turns 38-years-old. Katrina is one of the top actresses in Bollywood. Apart from her full-fledged characters in films, she is known for her dance numbers too.
But did you know Katrina had once thought to quit Bollywood forever? Yes, you heard it right, after Namastey London she felt that. After the film reportedly declared disaster, Katrina even thought of finding an alternate profession as her acting career was over.
At Karan Johar's chat show Koffee With Karan, Katrina spoke about feeling terrified after watching her film Namastey London. She said, “When I saw the film, I was terrified. Vipul (Amrutlal Shah, director) showed it to me and said, ‘What do you think?’ I didn’t call him back. You know, when a director shows the actress a film, you have to give him feedback. I took off home, shut the door, and didn’t give him a call.”
Katrina continued saying that her director Vipul was upset that she did not give her feedback on the movie. She said, “I called him and I said, ‘Hi Vipul.’ He asked, ‘What do you think?’ I said, ‘Nice, very nice film. Okay, bye."
She thought that the film would end her career, “I just saw too much of me in the film and you start believing what people say. I was like, ‘No, no, no, people can’t see me in a film, they won’t watch the film, it’s a disaster. This is over, my life is over.’”
Katrina said “I was like, “I am packing my bags and I am going to find a new career. That was really nice, it was essential for me because I think it did change people’s perception. It was the first time I got so many calls even from the industry, from directors saying, ‘I think you did pretty well in the movie."
