Katrina Kaif goes full throttle into action
After playing a rockstar in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and a biker babe in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, the sexy actor is upping the ante by training for hardcore action sequences
She played an arm candy for the longest time but actor Katrina Kaif has found her footing in Bollywood now. She broke out of the mould and showcased her acting chops in Prakash Jha’s Raajneeti, after which she has been taken more seriously as an actor. But it was Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara which gave Kat the required boost to look beyond item numbers and the other insignificant roles she’s been doing since long.
Kat has established herself as an A-list actor in B-town and is working with the top Khans and the biggest filmmakers here. The actor is really keen to find her own space in Dhoom 3, despite the overshadowing presence of Aamir Khan. In her excitement to get things right, Kat is seeking help from an international fitness instructor to help her train for Dhoom 3.The trainer is presently with her in London, where she is shooting for her Yash Raj film with Shahrukh Khan. She trains for two hours every day to strengthen her core muscles, increase stamina and agility. Katrina will continue training for another four months, post which the film goes on floors.
Wethinks it would be great to watch the ‘Chikni Chameli’ surprise us all with her world-class action sequences in Ek Tha Tiger and D3! Do you think Ms Kaif can pull off action scenes like a Priyanka Chopra and others?
