Katrina Kaif is all set to have a busy end to 2018! She has Thugs Of Hindostan coming up in six days, after which she gears up for Zero with her Jab Tak Hai Jaan co-stars Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma. For the uninitiated, Kaif plays the role of a movie star who’s duped by her boyfriend (Abhay Deol in a cameo) which ultimately leads her to depression and alcoholism. And the actor had a tough time sinking her teeth into the character.
A source shed light on how she approached the character, “Katrina read up on the stories of Hollywood actresses to bring more gravitas to her role. Demi Moore, for instance, has spoken at length about how she would constantly be having thoughts of self-destruction, regardless of the success that came her way. Katrina also read up on Lindsay Lohan’s stints in the rehab. She also referred to books like ‘Blackout’ and ‘More, Now, Again’ that includes stories of people at different stages of addiction and how they kicked the habit.”
Given she’s mostly exploited for dance numbers and pumping up the glamour quotient and oomph factor in big ticket bonanzas, or heavily criticized for not being soaring enough in her performances, this could be that one film that may make people recognize Katrina the actor and not the star.
