Dealing with fame isn’t easy. It comes with its own share of expectations, baggage and volatility. And Katrina Kaif is in complete agreement! The star, who holds 16 years of Bollywood experience to her credit, recently revealed what it takes to be part of the industry. According to her, one needs to have nerves of steel to survive the glitz and glamour in Indian cinema. Speaking about the field, Kat said, "It's not always easy. You need to have nerves of steel to be in the film industry. It's an unpredictable place and no one can guarantee success. I believe in not taking success to your head or failure to your heart.”
She, however, labels her almost two-decade run in Hindi films as a beautiful journey. "It's been wonderful, a lot of hard work but also a lot of love from the audience," mentioned Katrina, who is currently vacationing in Mexico for her birthday celebrations this week. This much-needed break comes after the roaring success of her last project, Bharat.
In a detailed interview with Film Companion last month, Katrina spoke about her sister Isabelle Kaif and the advice she gives to her. Appearing alongside actor Vicky Kaushal, she said, “So I think what I was trying to do in the beginning with Isabelle was kind of make her do everything that I had done. I was advising her all the similar things and the similar routes that I had kind of taken in my life.” However, she later regretted what she was doing. Katrina continued, “I don’t think I did it consciously. It just happened – a similar plan. I was thinking that okay this is the way that I have known, this is the way that will work for her to be successful. Now she’s been here for about eight or nine months. The best thing I can do for her as a sister is allow her to have her own voice and allow her to discover who she is instead of trying to make her a person who I think works for this industry or any industry. Authenticity is what works in any industry.”
