Now, a film on Katrina Kaif
Actor Katrina Kaif (above; left) seems to have inspired a character in director Pan Nalin’s (above; right) latest film, which was the first runner-up at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Incidentally, in the film, Amrit Maghera plays the role of an actor who comes to India to try her luck in the industry, but can’t speak Hindi. Katrina, too, moved to Mumbai to make it big in Bollywood back in the early 2000s. The 32-yearold’s inability to speak Hindi fluently made headlines on several occasions at the time.
Confirming the story, Pan says, “Katrina is a hugely successful star in India, and when we were writing, one character seemed to be following her career graph.”
He adds that the film is not completely based on Kat. “Even though we haven’t shown Katrina’s entire journey, we surely were inspired by it. We had Amrit play the role of a girl, who, despite facing cultural and lingual hindrances, migrated to India from London, to make a career in acting,” says Pan.
