Katrina Kaif's skin fear

The beautiful Katrina Kaif has decided to not don any make-up from now on. The actress has become skin conscious and will try to shun glorified facial paints in order to save her skin from serious damage.

Katrina Kaif’s ethereal beauty has a lot to do with her flawless skin and the lady has developed a fear that if she continues being exposed to the routine make-up and strong arch lights, soon she would lose her skin’s natural sheen. So she will use minimal make-up during the shoots from now onwards.

The lady, while talking to a tabloid, expressed this opinion, which is not irrelevant for the actresses who work round the clock in layers of make-up under the dazzling and hot arch lights. Katrina is of the opinion that it’s very unnatural to put heavy make-up as it dulls the radiance of your face and is harmful for the health of the skin in the long run.

Quite expectedly, Kats hates sitting for hours for make-up sessions during the shoots. And she would in future avoid such sittings unless absolutely necessary.

A few days back, Aishwarya Rai was in news because she sneakily applied make-up while her director Mani Ratnam wanted her to look plain while shooting Ravana .

Not to forget that there are many actresses who have gone Plain Jane in films. Priyanka Chopra shot sans make-up for a considerable part of her role in Fashion and she is again without greasepaints in Kaminey . Katrina herself is sporting minimal make-up in Prakash Jha ’s political drama Rajniti .

How Katrina Kaif made it from Barnet to Bollywood

Flick through this month’s Indian edition of Vogue or any one of the country’s gossipy tabloids and you will see one face pictured again and again — that of Bollywood’s newest megastar: a 24-year-old from the London borough of Barnet.

The profile belongs to Katrina Kaif, who watched her first Bollywood film at the age of 16 on Channel 4. Rejected as a teenager by modelling agencies in London for not being skinny enough, she has the £1 billion-a-year Hindi cinema industry at her feet.

The trajectory of her career has been extraordinary even by Bollywood’s hyperbolic standards. She arrived in India aged 17, speaking not a word of Hindi or knowing how to dance — two prerequisites of Indian cinema. Today, with 15 films to her credit, she is India’s most searched-for celebrity, according to Google; the country’s sexiest woman, according to the lads’ magazines FHM and Maxim; and the sub-continent’s most bankable female lead, according to the past year’s box-office receipts.

Her A-list status was confirmed earlier this year when Mattel, the toymaker, said that a forthcoming Bollywood Barbie doll would be modelled on Miss Kaif — not bad for a former wannabe model who couldn’t get a break in waif-obsessed Britain.

Assured of being mobbed if she appears in public in India, she cherishes her relative anonymity in Britain and speaks fondly about being able to stroll down Finchley High Street unmolested during her frequent but secret visits to her childhood home. “My London childhood and my career are two very different things,” she said. “I don’t like people to make the connection. The little bits you’ll read on the internet here and there about my London roots, they are the limits of what I’m willing to divulge.”

What is known is that she is one of eight siblings — six sisters, one brother — born in Hong Kong to a British mother, a lawyer-turned- charity worker, and a now-estranged Kashmiri father. The family moved to Finchley via homes across the globe when Miss Kaif was 14.

After being brought up on a film diet of Casablanca, MGM classics and Charlton Heston epics — “my mum was strict; she wouldn’t allow us to see ‘bad’ movies,” — the exuberance of Bollywood resonated instantly.

Miss Kaif’s fair skin, classical features and hourglass figure proved an instant hit in India, even if her halting Hindi was initially jibed at. Industry watchers say that her success has been based on her work ethic as much as her looks. She has five films in various states of production at the moment.

Miss Kaif is about to take the biggest gamble of her career. Her next film, New York, is set in the United States and based on the 9/11 terror attacks. Part of a new wave of Bollywood films that are dispensing with traditional Hindi formulas, it risks bemusing her fan base, which is used to seeing her miming and dancing.

New York is going to be a complete departure,” Miss Kaif said. “No lip synching. No dancing. Whether it’s going to be a good surprise or a bad surprise — I like to leave those things in the hands of God, and destiny and the audience.”

Katrina to auction her clothes, personal belongings

Here is good news for Katrina Kaif die-hard fans. You can own her clothes and accessories, as she is planning to auction them to support her mother Susanna’s orphanage, Mercy Home in Chennai.

Buzz up!
Yes you heard it right. Katrina confirmed that she is going help her mother to raise Rs.50 lakhs. For this, she is going to auction some of her film costumes, accessories and her personal belongings to help her mother set up a prenatal care centre.

Katrina said that the idea behind the auctioning of her belongings is to create awareness and motivate the public to come forward and help the cause. Mercy Home is very close to Katrina's heart, and hence she is doing all she could to bring about awareness.

It may be mentioned that Katrina's mother Susanna also fights against female foeticide through Hope Reach, a social organisation.

Salman parties without Katrina

Katrina Kaif has been trying very hard to make the world believe that the relationship between her and Salman Khan is still on and the two haven't drifted apart. But is it really true?

According to reports, Salman had organised a party to celebrate the beginning of the new season of his game show Dus Ka Dum at his Bandra residence. Sallu's family and all his friends were there to watch the first episode of the show together, but Katrina Kaif was missing.

Kats is a busy bee these days with some great projects in her kitty, but can work be more important than love? While Katrina is trying to keep things under the wraps but as they say 'you can run, but you can't hide'.
