Is Katrina Kaif a rising star, but a failing actor?

The Dhoom:3 babe may have raced ahead of Deepika Padukone at the box office, but she is far from being an versatile actor, like DP is. So is Katrina Kaif used merely as eye candy even after being in Bollywood for a decade? Pretty much, wethinks…

Katrina Kaif’s latest and only release of 2013, Dhoom:3 is re-writing box office records. The movie has already minted Rs 300 crore worldwide and is still going strong at the ticket windows. That’s not all! Industry experts say that with D:3 Ms Kaif has reclaimed her position as the undisputed Numero Uno female actor in Bollywood. Now Dhoom:3 may have earned earth shattering collections, but we certainly don’t think it’s coz of the leading lady – who was on the big screen for hardly 15 minutes. In fact, when you are halfway through the film, you forget if Katrina is even part of Dhoom:3. That’s how irrelevant her role is. Although we do agree she looked gorgeous in every frame and in everything she wore…or didn’t. But that’s about it. There’s nothing beyond Kat’s pretty face and wooden expressions in the film, in which Aamir Khan shines so much brighter. So calling her the number one heroine seems unfair, no? This, especially when you watch an actor like Deepika Padukone, who not only gets cash registers ringing, but more importantly, ACTS!

As for Katrina, we are kinda happy that she has decided not to settle down – with Ranbir Kapoor or anyone else – for at least ten years. Coz probably that’s how long the babe will take to learn how to act, hai na? And a few more will add up if Katrina had to pull off a film like Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela or even Cocktail, wethinks. To test out theory, check out her future films – Bang Bang with Hrithik Roshan and Phantom with Saif Ali Khan. Plenty of ‘real’ acting for her to do in these, huh!
