Filmmaker Aanand L.Rai’s last movie ‘Zero’ failed to meet the expectations of the audience. The movie received negative reviews on the release and also failed to make a mark at the box-office. But one thing that everyone agreed on is that Katrina Kaif is the best part of the movie. The actress impressed one and all with her performance as an alcoholic in the movie.

“What made me happy was that I pulled off the character exactly the way filmmaker Aanand L Rai and writer Himanshu Sharma had envisioned it. I lived with the role for almost two-and-a-half years, since the time they conceptualized the film and approached me for it,” said Katrina Kaif in an interview with DNA.

Katrina Kaif said that in the movie business you will always go through highs and lows and both the experiences mould you as a person. 

“I joined Bollywood when I was 18 and I’m not the same girl anymore because my life experiences have changed me. With knowledge, dedication, and experience, you find those films that take you to the next level. That’s exactly what Aanand sir and Himanshu did with this movie. They gave me an opportunity to do that. For me, that’s important because Zero helped me take a step forward as a performer,” 

Katrina Kaif will next be seen in the movie ‘Bharat’ that also stars Salman Khan.  Talking about the movie, Katrina said that shooting for Bharat has been a different experience altogether and as an actor, she is happy that she is part of the film and maintains that shooting for the film has been equal parts inspiring and challenging. 

 “It has been extremely inspiring, exciting, challenging and interesting. From the moment I started prep for this film till date, it’s been such a journey of discovery and learning. There have been so many moments while filming that I will always cherish,” Katrina said.

The actress recently came in news for walking out of Remo D’Souza’s dance movie that also stars Varun Dhawan. The actress cited clash of dates with ‘Bharat’ as the reason.

“It wasn’t possible for me to do that movie, given the timeline for Bharat. We are pushing for an Eid release, so we had to finish shooting this one. That’s very critical for the film. The dates became a problem and I had to opt out of that one,” she concluded.
