I don’t envy new ac­tors: Ka­t­rina

One would be in­sane and a mega­lo­ma­niac to not un­der­stand the na­ture of time or the na­ture of the uni­verse,” says Ka­t­rina Kaif. The ac­tor, who looked smok­ing hot in a re­cent shoot with celebrity pho­tog­ra­pher Mario Testino, is ma­ture enough to ac­knowl­edge that the years of play­ing a col­lege girl are be­hind her. “Time does not stand still for any­one. And with time comes evo­lu­tion, and that’s what you should be do­ing,” she adds.

Ka­t­rina says that she can no longer think she is “go­ing to rewind my­self and play a 21-year-old in a short pink mini skirt”.

Bol­ly­wood is a place of new faces — Ka­t­rina her­self was one in 2005 — and this is a fact of life she can live with.

“There are other new ac­tors who’ll al­ways keep com­ing. I don’t know all of them, but some of them are my friends and there’s not a mo­ment when I feel envy in a bad way,” she says, adding that healthy com­pe­ti­tion should al­ways be there be­cause “that’s what drives you”. All that mat­ters when an ac­tor looks over their shoul­der is that they have good per­for­mances and good films to their name, she says. “That’s the only in­for­ma­tion you need to have of the in­dus­try you work in,” adds Ka­t­rina.
