Katrina Kaif quotes
# “When you are in love, the person you are involved with should mean everything to you…”
# “It’s not my style to either wear minimum clothes, to strip or to even be comfortable with a sex-symbol label. I just want to do good work instead of sporting such meaningless tags. Sex sells, but to a small extent, not always”
# “I am Moody… and a Cancerian to the boot. Even a small thing can change the entire mood, but I’m working on that. Besides, I’m also loyal and possessive”
# “I hate wearing make-up. When I leave my hair loose, I don’t wear any make-up. I feel a lot more comfortable that way. I wish we didn’t have to wear make-up.”
# “I enjoy modelling. Don’t forget that I was a model before I joined movies, I began my career as a model, and this will always be my first love.”
# “I want to do better than what I have already done. In fact, people have noticed the change as well. And, a change for good is always welcome. It is quite motivating,”
# “It’s so much fun to be on the sets with actors like Saif and Bipasha. They don’t make me feel unwelcome for even a second.”
# “When I look back at the movies where someone else dubbed for me I go, ‘No no no! That’s not me!’ But in ‘Namastey London’ and now ‘Apne’ I felt I was watching and hearing myself,”
# “I am suspicious pf people trying to create unnecessary controversies. I cannot allow other people to stand in judgment of my life. If I did, I would be a miserable person. Just because I am in the glamour industry people tend to make assumptions about how I live.”
# “I’m not involved with Salman Khan. I’m just a close friend of his sister Alvira’s, I don’t have a love interest in my life, I’m just so busy, travelling every single day with my work. I’m content to hang out with my friends.”
# “Salman Khan is a senior actor and I have learnt a lot from him during the making of the film. He is very focussed and dedicated.”
# “Although I haven’t met Madhuri Dixit in person, I find her very beautiful on screen. I also find Manisha Koirala beautiful.”
# “Some reviewer in Mumbai commented that I pronounced words wrongly. Hello! This is probably some guy who has spent his life in Mumbai. I lived in London and know how to speak like young Indians out there. I’ve a good mind to dash off a letter to him.”
# “I can read and speak Hindi quite well now and that’s quite an achievement considering I didn’t know the language at all when I came down here”
# “I have no complaints. I think I’m especially lucky. As you said, I’ve come from outside and I’m not even anywhere closely connected. But I have absolutely no problem here. People have been more than welcoming, even before I was ready.”
# “I’ve been very blessed, I think, or what do you call it… mmm… lucky to get at this stage what I have. It’s not like I’ve come from acting school and done work at an academy or something. I feel I’ve been given a very huge chance and opportunity.”
