Is Katrina Kaif the worst actor in Bollywood?
Yogen Shah

She has had an interesting journey in Bollywood from Boom to Dhoom and is one of the top stars in B-town, but looks like she still has a long way to go

Katrina Kaif has been rated lowest for acting prowess by most of her tinsel town colleagues and co-stars. And even though she might be a front runner for the No.1 heroine spot it looks like she stills lags behind in the best actor category. So, it’s not really surprising to only watch Kat perform at award functions and never receive an award for acting in a decade long career.This Shiela’s jawaani has created dhoom and her star power is on a boom, but with B-towners not rating her high on acting in Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee with Karan 4 must definitely stand out like a sore thumb, hai na?

Our Chikini Chameli is however unperturbed, in fact she says, “It’s okay… I mean, if that’s what they feel, that’s what they feel. People are entitled to their opinion, and I can’t have an opinion on someone else’s opinion.” Looks like Ms Kaif is happy doing what she doing and with big banner projects in her kitty and top actors featuring opposite her, we aren’t surprised that she couldn’t care less. However, we wish that the Bang Bang actor finally takes a cue and proves her critics and Bollywoodwallahs wrong who rated her low.

And a few awards rather than just endorsements wouldn’t hurt, na? So next time Kat when somebody takes a jibe at your acting, we hope you are affected and decide to prove them wrong. May be she could do with a little help from beau Ranbir Kapoor and his famous Kapoor khandaan.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    The best actress and Most beautiful lady in the world. Kat jaisa koi nahi…

    • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

      Most beautiful in bollywood sure she is..but best actress , for that u need to take out the blindfold of her beauty and see.. in all her movies her expressions are same wooden except brother ki dulhan..even in jab tak hai jaan , anushka was far much better than her..remember the church scene where she comes in saree , she looked stunning i agree..but when she started crying i was laughing..thats not what u call acting, when u cant even move ur audience emtionally..If you wana see what acting is called , please go and have a look our best actresses vidya in kahani , and PC in barfi, kareena in jab we met even deepika in ram leela or chennai express when audience had the actress dialogues on their minds, not just how they looked.. All i know is Katrina is the most most over rated actress of bollywood.

      • http://bollywoodlife.com/ Najat Razak Mumuni

        you are one of the people who never tough Katrina will never make it,, but guess what she did, and she is here to stay,, you are right to think what you want, and keep your opinion to yourself,

        • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

          No i am one of those people who was her fan just like u with namastey london and brother ki dulhan thinking shes so pretty and good , she would get better..but after dhoom 3 , i have lost hope in her, and the other thing is she doesnt care about her fans..i have seen almost all her interviews she diplomat and rude , end of the day shes british.

          • http://bollywoodlife.com/ Najat Razak Mumuni

            so she is British that is why indies hate her, i get it now,

          • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

            hahahahhahahah noooo we dont hate her..shes rude to her audience i guess thats because shes british at the end of the day..

          • Amy

            Excuse me I’m British thank you very much. Stop stereotyping if I was to stereotype then I’m pretty sure you’d be offended. Stop hating on her just cos you’re jealous

          • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

            I am not being stereotype here neither am i jealous or something of her. My reply was to Najat who thinks shes an Indian and best actress.. I myself m living in a foreign country and m nt one of those persons who believe in caste , religion or even nationality.. My opinion was on her acting and why I think shes rude to people in India , coz shes nt Indian herself..So all u people who are standing for her and fighting, like seriously she not gonna come and pay to us if we praise..u like her good for u..I dont,, its as simple as that.

          • Amy

            I know she’s not gonna pay me no one’s paying you to criticise her yet you still do. So…

          • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

            Exactly.. I am ..and I will coz its my opinion , public website , my hands with which i am typing , so I will.. U can also give ur opinion down there, hardly matters..

          • Amy

            Exactly this is an opinions website so why can we not state our opinion. Yes my opinion is for Kat it’s still my opinion I state it cos I wanna

          • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

            Awesome..absolutely ..I said it above in my comments too , some like her , some dont..

          • http://bollywoodlife.com/ Najat Razak Mumuni

            tell me and be honest to God, how she rude, what did she say, think before you answer me, she never say anything wrong, she even say people can say what they want and she respect that, so what else do you guys want, if is the acting then she is still learning, so leave her alone

          • http://bollywoodlife.com/ Najat Razak Mumuni

            tell me and be honest to God, how she rude, what did she say, think before you answer me, she never say anything wrong, she even say people can say what they want and she respect that, so what else do you guys want, if is the acting then she is still learning, so leave her alone,

          • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

            first of all i dont write it in my diary where she saidh and what she said.. as i told u earlier i have watched mostly all her interviews and she was rude and to the audience i said because we were here at toifa , everyone gave autographs and clicked pictures with there fans , she didnt come on red carpet and after show tooo she didnt thanked or talked to her fans who were waiting for her..and secondly i know shes learning but i guess 10 yrs is quite a good time to learn.. thats y said above its high time she gives a terrific performance and prove herself…and who are u to tell me to leave her alone and all that.. m not even holding her man.

          • http://bollywoodlife.com/ Najat Razak Mumuni

            i think you are in love with Katrina, and she doesn’t love you back so you are hurt, am sorry for your pain, as you said, she will do her best next time in a movie

          • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

            goddddd u r very irritating man.. ok fine watever suits u..i m in love with ur poor katrina she doesnt love me backk.. :( I am so much hurt that she doesnt love me back unnnnhhhhh unnnnhhhhh :(

            Happy?

          • http://bollywoodlife.com/ Najat Razak Mumuni

            now let me tell you, am a black woman, and i leave in Netherlands, i love her because she is truth to her self,

          • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

            This is what u think ..My opinion is different from you.. So what are you gonna do.. u cant force me not to write what I feel about her.. I am not stoping you..

          • nand

            Do not argue with this Najat guy, dont you see he is a MUSLIM!

          • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

            Well thanks Nand , but I dont believe in caste or religion..And i certainly don’t have a problem with her opinion of liking or disliking someone..The only thing is she is trying to stop me from commenting here which by any means is not her business.

          • Amy

            Finally there’s someone here who doesn’t judge someone based on their religion. Good on you.

          • seema

            i agree that kat is not rude but she sometimes get irritated and all that credit goes to media. but i agree after lip surgery she is not old beautiful katrina.

          • seema

            hahahaha that was cool

          • seema

            even i loved katrina ta starting from welcome to mere brother ki dulhan but than in jthj she was highly irritating. even i aggree anushka was better than her. she seemed that she didnt know what was happening around her. i dont like her item girl image, if she had quit this item songs she might have improved alot by now but she went wrong way. her best performance till date was in ZNMGD.

          • arohi

            include me also. if u see her in previous films, I loved her and thought someday she will make it like kareena, but dhoom3 was bad choice.

        • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

          And Nazat everyone are entitled to their own opinions, this comment column doesnt say u just have to praise here..u can critisize too if thats what u feel..so dont take it personally , m was talking about a public figure.

      • Kat’s Buff

        hey lbx2joydkn, firstly tell me if u r deepika fan?

        • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

          I am no ones fan as such.. Yes i am madhuri fan , and i am fan of tru actress..

          • Kat’s Buff

            gr8..somebody sensible,.

      • arohi

        she is pretty for sure but item songs were not rite choice. her best work acc to me is new York.

  • TheVrai

    Yes she is the worst actress in Bollywood. But she has had a good innings never the less so she can’t complain.

  • heer

    Katrina can act. We saw that in rajneethi n newyork but due to sheila ki jawani success , she went into dancing route , be it chikni , mashallah , ishq shwa , kamili .. she thought this is wat my fans want from me . Jthj was a performance oriented role , she screwed it up coz she couldnt identify with the charecter. This she had said it even during making of jthj . She couldnt understand how to play meera , n u could make out she was lost during movie. She is careful now . She will not repeat the mistake . She is very intelligent that way. But not being desi she has her limitations , she is working hard , she wont tell you that , she will show u .

    • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

      rajneeti i agree , but u have to accept it was just that speech thats it..In new york may be..i agree namastey london it was good , till then i like kat tooo but after that same thing in all movies. no good pronunciation of hindi..or all the movies to be dubbed..Thats not how u connect with ur audiences..10 yrs in this industry and still what we see is sheila , chikni , or 20 mins role in dhoom..I dont think so , shes just over-rated and pretty thats y still surviving , whose gonna want to see her when she becomes old..We have some of best actresses Vahida rehman , sharmila tagore and jaya bachchan whom we still love to see in their roles coz they move the audience..she wont be able to do chikni and sheila in few yrs..if shes an actor , she really needs to prove her metal

      • http://bollywoodlife.com/ Najat Razak Mumuni

        so what, get something to do, if you have advise to people give it to the men who rape and kill the woman in indai. i think that is what you bollywoodlife have to talk about,

        • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

          I was just giving my opinion yar until this user came and started arguing with me ..I comment someone else and this person is since behind my back as u can see above..lol

    • Kat’s Buff

      101% agree…

    • arohi

      agree with u. in jthj she looked uncomfortable. may be she was not guided properly or was not explained priorities of role

  • http://bollywoodlife.com/ Najat Razak Mumuni

    all this people rate her low, nobody remember them with their films, that is too bad, in this world, everybody have something inside them that God give them, Bollywoodlife, tell me all the actress who have what Katrina have or who people care to talk about, is Katrina, so that tell you she have a star in her,so forget yourself, God bless her

  • guest

    Listen, I may not be a fan of her acting but there is one thing about this girl that I love…she is well spoken. She’s right, everyone is entitled to their opinion and she can’t comment on anyone else’s opinion. Good for her.

  • http://bollywoodlife.com/ Najat Razak Mumuni

    you guys are jealous of Katrina for nothing, leave her alone, and think about how you will better your website

    • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

      wowwwww dude relax ,katrina is not coming to read these comments , ur funny dude..nobody is jealous of her..shes public figure and some like her , some dont like her..big deal..thats how she will improvise and get better ,,if evryone will love her..she will just show sheila and chikni

      • Amy

        No offence but it seems that you’re jealous. Just my opinion.

        • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

          a) I am not an actor that I will be going to bollywood and so m jealous with her..Even if i was in my dreams , i wont be jealous coz i dont consider her to be good actress , yes i would have been jealous of vidya , parineeti etc..

          b) Katrina is very beautiful , i agree , I may not be even 1% of her in beauty.. But acting is not her forte.

          • nand

            I strongly support all your comments.Katrina has no acting skills

          • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

            Thank you!

  • http://bollywoodlife.com/ Najat Razak Mumuni

    so what, get something to do, if you have advise to people give it to the men who rape and kill the woman in indai. i think that is what you bollywoodlife have to talk about, and stop worrying Katrina for nothing, always giving died news

  • Bollyfan

    Oh yeah she is the WORST.She always has the same expression, no emotion,she is very bland as an actress

    • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

      Thank you , one more with me who thinks the same..Najat please come here and comment tooo as thats ur job coz ur katrina’s PR.

      • safa basheer

        Katrina is beautiful and a good dancer but one terrible actress..infact I don’t know why she is even in the industry, she could have been a model for all she is doing.. young people only care about looks otherwise she would have never found sucess

        • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

          Totally agree with u.

      • Dhruvi

        I too agree with u. She is pretty but a good actress. She does not even have a good solid meaningful film like other actresses where she is in the main lead n of importance. Rajineeti is good but not concentrated on her.

      • http://bollywoodlife.com/ Najat Razak Mumuni

        i dont get a fuck what you think of me, get a life

        • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

          exactly no one is giving it to u.. lol.. and same goes to u too man.. sitting here and fighting with every second user who comments against ur katrina….get a life man.

  • Kia

    Might as well rename yourself to cheapikalife

    • disqus_LbX2JOYdkn

      Thats a good name.. But i guess u dont know how to pronounce her name, its Deepika and no one is cheap.. and todays headline “this article didn’t even mention Deepika” .. Wowwwwww really i thought it did , after reading ur comment.

      • Kia

        oh i think i pronounced it right

        • Dhruvi

          All so petty people. Wasting time here n fighting with each other about actors. Our opinions don’t matter n here we are thinking that wow we are making the status of fav star go higher by insulting others. Lol

    • Kat’s Buff

      exactly.

  • desigirl424

    You guys just realized that now?

    • Kat’s Buff

      this bloody hater appeared once again!!

      • desigirl424

        Same as for you when it comes to Deepika, so don’t act like your any better.

        • Kat’s Buff

          i dont wander on deepika’s post to comment smthing negative.
          get life bloddy hater!

          • desigirl424

            your no less

  • Kat’s Buff

    KWK has rating on basis of acting abilities,not rating as worst actors,. this site authority should improve their language. And that ans of kat came around 5th of feb y did u publish it so late? and we’v seen same article flashing on many other sites but nowhere they called her WORST actor,what make only u write so idk.
    Let me tell u,katrina as an actress was zero or even on negative scale b4 namstey london,her acting dat time made me think like my school dramas were having better artists. but post NL she has shown tremendous improvement. Hindi is really not an easy lang to understand nor any other lang of india bcoz all indian lang are most complexed langs one can ever see. especially for a person who never heard a word of hindi in her pre-life.She understands hindi well at present,she has lost her british accent.She is only afraid to spk in hindi during interviews coz our overwhelming press persons aren’t so kind to understand her mistake but would rather make it biggest headline.
    Kat’s performances in NAMSTEY LONDON,NEW YORK are untouchable,no other bollywood actress could do them to the perfection with vch kat pulled them off. Numbers of NRI’s i’v seen talking like WE FOUND OURSELVES IN KATRINA’s ROLE. No, i dint hear any NRI praising same for deepika’s performance in cocktail where she was supposed to play NRI.and sound like AN NRI.but w8 what we see,she receiving praises for that performance ,to be honest from all indian girls who thought she did good job(really admiring her style,and frowny,drunk act).
    Many dark skinned indian girls who really carry inferiority complex for their skin cannot just withstand katrina bcoz she’s sweetheart of most indian men.boys.to worsen situation she’s at top of the game.
    Not only katrina but many actresses hav gvn worse performances,yes kat was terrible in JTHJ.and idk y she signed film like ek tha tiger(never expected such a film from kabir khan).
    cming to acting kat in her 10 yrs career as an actress was superb in only 4 films-NL,NY,ZNMD,AND MBKD. if smone asks me in how many films she looked beautiful gorgeous or hot,almost all i will answer,yes kat needs to understand that she hs to gv superb performances to sustain.I was totally disappointed after her last 3 bakwas films .
    But admitting it,i watched her d3 interview and she was asked about trend in b’wood going on nw,and the way she answered it i feel she’s more intelligent nw,the type of films she’s signed (except band bang) she seem to have geared up for performance oriented films.Only thing i can do is wish that ONE DAY WILL COME WHEN KAT WILL PROVE ALL PPL WRONG.
    i’v no objection wid ne hater hating her acting,the impression she left as an actress in last 3 films is terrible-by sincere admirer of kat

  • milan227

    The thing is people expect more from her because she HAS been in the industry for 10 years now… yes, her diction has improved, her dancing even more so, and she has always been beautiful and poised. But her acting is still by-the-numbers… it’s like the director says cry and she does, be angry and she frowns but that extra spark, that feeling is not there that would make us emphatize with her, feel for her. An actor is supposed to get into the skin of the character and make it his/her own. Whether she believes in the character or not, she should make us believe in it. She is to be commended for lasting 10 years in such a hero-oriented film industry, that too after debuting in a flop film but still… if despite her longevity and her roster of hits, if her acting is still coming under fire, then perhaps Kat should ask herself why

  • Rajani

    She is a good actor and she has proved it. Almost all her movies are superhit. Getting award is not so important. But yes she should not limit herself by doing only one film in a year. The more she does the more she will be in the eye of the audience. She is beautiful, good dancer and a very hard working.She has a long way to go. Dhoom 3 was only focused on Aamir Khan. It was wrong from the director’s part giving her such a small role knowing her credibility. whatever role she got she had justified it. It doesn’t matter what her co-star rated her in terms of acting. All the big stars I mean the actors always prefer Katrina as their co-star in their movie. so action speaks more than a word. So why to bother….Keep working hard.

  • seeker

    She is an amazing person, honest and beautiful. She is grounded and very intelligent. Just read her interviews. Minds her own business and does her own thing and works really really hard. Her acting is very international, not overly dramatic or expressive the way Indian actors tend to get. For me that’s way more attractive than being dramatic and loud.

    • milan227

      Actually, you made a good point – her acting is very international. I think that is what bugs me about her sometimes – there are certain roles which require a desi sense of melodrama and that is where she falters. Otherwise she is really good in rom-coms and realistic type roles. Actually her entry into Bollywood at this particular time, when masala films are giving way to more upscale entertainment is fortuitous, because there is a place for her now. Otherwise if it had been the nineties, she would not have made it… That said, maybe she should either improve her acting for masala movies or not act those movies at all – she can’t accept a role in JTHJ and then mess up because she doesn’t ‘get’ the character. I mean, yes the character of Meera was … weird… but maybe another actress might have made us empathize with her and maybe the movie might have been more … watchable…maybe… On the other hand, she was AWESOME in Dhoom 3. What if she had gotten a role as big as Ash’s in Dhoom 2? OMG she would have been the sexiest, the absolute best heroine in the whole Dhoom franchise….

      • Kat’s Buff

        perfect explaination. 1000+

    • alia

      There is a difference between not being overly dramatic and just being a stiff board. I think you will find Katrina clearly demonostrates the latter in her so-called “acting.”

  • Fakrata

    Why doesn’t this clueless reporter migrate to a country she’s never been too…say Russia, learn the language from scratch and then compete with local Russian beautiful women in their entertainment industry. Let’s see how far she/he gets. The fact that Katrina is amongst the top actresses in Bollywood is a huge achievement in itself and certain biased reporters or bitter producers/directors like Karan Johar can’t take that fact away from her. Besides if Karan ever asks his guests who is a bigger star than a better actress on his show….katrina Kaif would be no 1 on every damn persons list. So really, pointless article and your blatant bias continues. Tragic.

  • jay

    kutrina has the lokks of an item girl only, no talent and not at all a good humanbeing , a selfish cunning creeper type lady , sustain in the industry only because of Bfriends..

  • JC

    Is she the best actress? No. But put Kat in any movie and all eyeballs go directly to her. That’s why she’s a Bollywood superstar. I’m sure she does as much preparation as possible with acting and dialect coaches or whatever coaches she needs to be more desi. You can’t say Kat doesn’t try. Still, Kat has the “it” factor along with Deepika, Priyanka, Anushka, and Sonakshi because it seems these actresses are the only ones getting the big, big Bollywood roles. Thumbs up for Katrina!

  • Bunny

    Katrina is half Indian and half british …those who say she is not at all Indian …they are completely dumb…Kat always respects her fans….She is never so rude…she always tells that My fans have made me what i am today…Some dumb and blind people who are useless only make rubbish and fake and meaningless comments about Kat !

    • Rohini Verma

      We are not dumb. Accept the truth she is not Indian!
      She doesn’t look Indian from any angle. Ayesha Shroff producer of Boom revealed Katrina is not an Indian woman! So there you have it.

  • najatlove

    hi

  • Rekha Bisht

    yes is worst actress we having.

    • euglo

      same goes for witchika she is rotating her bfs to mach shit movies she does

  • Katrina Vactoria

    katrina kaif is just amazing nd the queen so just shut up nd fuck off writer

  • rituparna

    it will be better if people remember you for acting,beauty is temporary….. learn some acting skills atleast so that you can be counted as an actress…………..from actress like aishwarya,madhuri etc…even the your contemporaries like deepika ,kangna or vidya

  • arohi

    to be honest she was good in ny, rajneeti, znmgd. but item no were bad path for her, otherwise she must have improved much by now.

  • Rohini Verma

    I want to just punch this woman in the face.
    I hate her fake personality and her! :(
